Wales knocked out! Dolberg double sends Denmark into last eight of Euro 2020

A brace from Kasper Dolberg helped the Danes to an emphatic win in Amsterdam.

Nice forward Kasper Dolberg scored in both halves as Denmark bagged a memorable 4-0 win over Wales in the last 16 of Euro 2020.

Dolberg - who is a former Ajax player and no stranger to the Johan Cruyff Arena - opened the scoring in the 27th minute with a divine curling effort from outside the box.

His second was a lot more fortuitous as Neco Williams' sloppy clearance fell straight to his feet. Dolberg, who couldn't believe his luck, took full advantage with a powerful effort from close range.

Joakim Maehle put salt into Welsh wounds with a third goal in the 88th minute. The Atalanta full-back turned the Wales defence inside out before finding the back of the net.

Things got even worse for Rob Page's side as Harry Wilson received a straight red card in stoppage time.

A woeful evening for Wales was capped off with a fourth Danish goal, courtesy of Martin Braithwaite.

This was a disappointing outing from Wales who did start the game with plenty of energy.

The opening 15 minutes were dominated by Page's men as Gareth Bale threatened the Danish goal with a couple of early opportunities.

In the end though, it was Denmark who deserved to progress following a lustrous display in Holland.

Stat of the day

From OptaJoe: Kasper Dolberg is the first Danish player to score at least twice in a match at a major tournament since Nicklas Bendtner against Portugal in EURO 2012.

What's next

Following their win over Wales, Denmark will continue their Euro 2020 journey in Baku.

Kasper Hjulmand's side will take on the winners of Sunday's clash between Netherlands and Czech Republic.

Denmark's last encounter with the Dutch came at Euro 2012 when they managed a 1-0 win in Kharkiv, Ukraine.

A fixture with the Czech Republic would also have historical significance. During Euro 2004, the two teams met in the quarter-final which ended in a comprehensive 3-0 win for the Czechs.
