It was a constant back and forth for Denmark, but, against all odds, Andreas Christensen and his side have spectacularly gone through to the knockout stages of the EUROS. The cherry on top was that the Chelsea man scored an absolute screamer to make it 3-1 for his country. To say this is something you don’t see every day would be an understatement, but what a goal it was.
2 - Denmark are the first team in European Championship history to reach the knockout stages of the competition having lost their first two group stage games. Recovery. #EURO2020— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 21, 2021
Denmark went on to win 4-1 against Russia and, with help from Belgium, go through despite two defeats in their first two games of the tournament. Also taking into consideration what happened to Christian Eriksen, I doubt many people won’t be ecstatic to see the Danes make it to the next stage — and it was thoroughly deserved, too.
This was only Christensen’s second in a Denmark shirt, yet it’s still two more than in blue. He had a great performance overall so it’s very much worth your time to go and look at some lengthy highlights of this thrilling match.
Let’s hope to see Andreas score the odd goal for Chelsea like this one very soon!
