    England reach Euro 2020 semis with emphatic Ukraine win to set up Denmark clash

    England fans have never had more belief that football is coming home after Ukraine were eased aside in their Euro 2020 quarter-final clash.

    Harry Kane’s early opener in Rome calmed any nerves among the millions of fans watching on back home.

    And the lucky 1,000 Three Lions supporters inside the Stadio Olimpico were free to celebrate for most of the night, especially after Harry Maguire’s bullet header from a Luke Shaw free-kick moments into the second period.

    Kane then doubled his tally for the night and put himself right in the mix for the Golden Boot with a header from another Shaw cross that nutmegged the helpless Ukraine keeper.

    Jordan Henderson then put even more gloss on the scoreline by notching his first England goal, heading home from a Mason Mount corner.

    Denmark awaits Gareth Southgate’s side on Wednesday evening at Wembley.

    The other semi-final takes place the night before as Spain face Italy for a place in next Sunday’s final too.
