England reached the quarter-finals of World Cup 2002 after ultimately beating Denmark in the first half with three goals without reply.

Rio Ferdinand got England up and running after netting inside the first five minutes, then a 22-year-old Michael Owen doubled the lead in the 22nd minute.

England managed to get one back in the 87th minute thanks to Wayne Rooney, however this was merely a consolation as in the second minute of added time Soren Larsen scored Denmark’s fourth.

England 2 Denmark 1 (Euro 2020 semi-final, July 2021)

Gareth Southgate’s side kept their Euro 2020 hopes alive by making their way into the final after overcoming a resilient Denmark side.

It was not simple for England as in the 30th minute Mikkel Damsgaard stuck a powerful free-kick into the top-left corner, leaving a flailing Jordan Pickford with no chance and putting the Danes 1-0 up.

Soon after, England were back level after an own goal from a low Bukayo Saka cross was bundled in by an unlucky Simon Kjaer.

England kept pushing but they could not beat Kasper Schmeichel until the 104th minute when Harry Kane followed in his saved penalty and made sure not to miss the rebound, sending England to the final.
