England player ratings: Maguire outstanding as Sterling delivers again

H

arry Kane scored the winner in extra-time as England beat Denmark to reach the Euro 2020 Final.

Kane had a penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel before converting the rebound to send England into their first major tournament final since the 1966 World Cup.

England will play Italy in the Final at Wembley on Sunday.

A brilliant free-kick from Mikkel Damsgaard had put Denmark ahead before an own goal from Simon Kjaer pulled England level.

Neither side could find a winner in the 90 minutes but Kane scored the winner in the first half of extra-time to spark jubilant scenes at Wembley.

James Robson was at Wembley to rate the England players…

Loose clearance almost let Braithwaite in. Could do nothing about Damsgaard’s stunning free kick but was commanding after that.

England’s best player for much of the first half – producing a brilliant recovery run to cut out Damsgaard when he was threatening run through on goal. Service to Saka could have been better.

Denied Denmark chances from open play. Struggled to build from the back in the first half, such was England’s lack of control in midfield. Grew in stature as the game went on with a dominant performance in the second half and extra time.

Forced a brilliant save from Schmeichel with his second half header. One of England’s best users of the ball at the back and on the ground or in the air that Denmark could throw at him. 

Not as creative as he has been in recent matches and did not get on enough set plays. But tenacious and tireless and still a threat going forward.
