Elsewhere in Group A, Wales and Switzerland played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw in Baku, leaving both sides with work to do to qualify for the knockout stages. The last few days of football, however, have been overshadowed by the harrowing scenes in Copenhagen. Denmark’s talisman Christian Eriksen collapsed before half-time of their opener against Finland, sparking immediate concerns while medical teams rushed to the midfielder’s aid.
The Group B match was suspended after Eriksen received CPR and was transferred to hospital, where he remains in a stable condition. Finland won the game 1-0, their first win in their first game at a major tournament. But the result paled into insignificance after Eriksen’s collapse. From his hospital bed, the Inter Milan midfielder has thanked all those who wished him well.

Scotland, meanwhile, marked their return to a major tournament with a disappointing 2-0 loss to the Czech Republic. On Tuesday, Group F got underway.

While, on Tuesday, Italy qualified for the last-16 with a 3-0 win over Switzerland. Wales beat Turkey 2-0 and Russia beat Finland 1-0.

Denmark are in the semi-final!

Denmark have reached the semi-final of Euro 2020 after beating Czech Republic 2-0.

It's been a remarkable turnaround for Kasper Hjulmand's men, who lost their opening two group games against Finland and Belgium.

As well as that, the players have had to cope with seeing their team mate Christian Eriksen suffer a cardiac arrest in the opening game against Finland.

The whole of Europe can only admire them. Denmark will play England or Ukraine in the semi-final at Wembley on Wednesday.
