Both teams reached the quarterfinals through a series of coups. Denmark are confident of beating Wales by four goals in the final. But on the other hand, the entry of the Czech team was to defeat the strong Holland in the pre-quarter. Denmark scored against the Czech team in the fifth minute of the first half. Thomas Delaney scored for Denmark. The first corner opportunity they got in their favor was when Delaney crossed the goal line with a smashed header. Striger Larson’s outswinger kick opened the scoring.
After the first goal was scored, Czech woke up and played. In the 11th minute, Czech spearhead Patrick Schick jumped into the Danish box but could not find the target. The Czech Republic created more chances in the first half but the goal alone was alien to them. The Danish defense was well off against a series of attacks by the Czech forwards. In the 21st minute, the Czechs’ hole came into the box with the ball, but goalkeeper Schmeichel hit the ball. In the 33rd minute, Strigger had a chance to score inside the box, but Czech goalkeeper Waslik stepped forward and saved the ball. With three minutes left in the first half, Caspar Dolberg gave Denmark the lead. Dolberg’s goal was scored by goalkeeper Waslik with his foot on the measured cross of the mail.
In the second half, the Czech team looked more aggressive. The Czech team scored a goal four minutes into the second half. The goal was scored by Patrick Shik, the Czech goalkeeper. This was Shik’s fifth goal in the Euros this season. In the 59th minute, goalkeeper Dolberg pulled Yusuf Paulson off the field. Paulson was also attacking in the face of the Czech goal. But he was unable to overcome the defense of Czech goalkeeper Waslik. Later, in the allotted time and six minutes of injury time, the Czech players struggled for the equalizer but all failed.
