An extra-time winner by Harry Kane helped England defeat Denmark 2-1 to secure a meeting with Italy in the final of UEFA Euro 2020 on Sunday.

After topping their group, beating Germany and swatting aside Ukraine, this semi-final victory gives the Three Lions a chance to follow in the footsteps of the triumphant 1966 World Cup side by lifting silverware at Wembley.

The nation that lays claim to being the inventor of soccer, but is more fittingly one of the sport’s great underachievers, is back in a final — against Italy in the European Championships.

Denmark went in front through Mikkel Damsgaard’s stunning free-kick after 30 minutes, awarded for a foul on Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen by Luke Shaw.

But England equalised nine minutes later when a Kane pass opened up the Denmark defence and Bukayo Saka’s cross to Sterling was turned into his own net by Simon Kjaer.

Kane has now equalled Gary Lineker’s long-standing record of 10 goals for England at major tournaments.

England now head into a final of a major tournament for the first time since 1966 when they face Italy at Wembley, the teams will meet Sunday night at Wembley Stadium in London where England will be going for its first major title since winning the 1966 World Cup on their home field. The Italians are unbeaten in 33 games.

Where will the Euro 2020 final be played?
As with both semi-finals, the game will be played at London’s Wembley Stadium.
