Denmark and Wales 4-0 … 4 goals storm in the first 2 matches in the Euro ‘record’
Italy defeated Austria after extra time and succeeded in advancing to the quarterfinals of the 2020 European Football Championship (Euro 2020).
In the round of 16 match held at Wembley Stadium in London, England on the 27th (Korean time), Italy scored two goals in overtime to win 2-1 in overtime against Austria in 90 minutes.
Italy, which entered the tournament with three consecutive wins (7 points) in the group stage, broke the scoreless record on that day, but the winning streak continued.
In addition, Italy, which has not lost in 31 matches (26 wins, 5 draws) until today, set a new record for the most undefeated matches in its own A match.
The previous record was 30 matches (24 wins, 6 draws) and undefeated from November 24, 1935 to July 20, 1939.
Italy will face the winner of the match between Belgium and Portugal in the quarterfinals at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany at 4 am on the 3rd.
The tight game was decided in the 5th minute of extra time.
Federico Chiesa (Juventus), who caught Leonardo Spinachola (AS Roma)’s cross from the right side of the goal area, beat the opponent’s defense with a simple touch and shot the opening goal with his left foot.
In the 15th minute of extra time, Italy’s Matteo Pesina (Atalanta) added a goal to widen the gap.
This was the final goal.
While the opposing defense couldn’t handle the ball properly at the doorstep, Pessina waved the net with her left foot.
Austria made up for a goal with a header goal from Sasha Kalagizic (Stuttgart) in the ninth minute of extra time, but failed to equalize.
Denmark defeated Wales 4-0 in the round of 16 at the Amsterdam Arena in the Netherlands and reached the quarterfinals for the first time in 17 years since the 2004 tournament.
Denmark became the first team in Euro history to score four or more goals in two consecutive matches, beating Russia 4-1 in the last match of the group stage.
It is the first time in 41 years since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico that Denmark has won two consecutive major international tournaments.
Wales, which caused a sensation in the quarter-finals in 2016, did not use any strength against Denmark and experienced the bitter taste of being eliminated in the round of 16.
Denmark’s forward striker Casper Dolbert (Nice) took the lead in the victory by scoring a multi-goal in the first half.
In the 27th minute of the first half, a right footed shot from the left of the penalty tee took the lead, and in the 48th minute of the second half, when the opponent’s defense fell in front of their feet that the ball was kicking off the door, he did not hesitate to shoot from the front of the goal area to make it 2-0.
Wales, who pushed Wales into the second half, finished the game with goals from Joachim Mehle (Atalanta) in the 43rd minute and Martin Braithwaite (Barcelona) in the 49th minute.
Wales completely lost their energy in the 45th minute as Harry Wilson (Cardiff City) was sent off and took on a down number.
Denmark, which was initially classified as the best dark horse in the tournament, showed a stronger appearance after the bad news when Christian Eriksen (Inter Milan), the core of the team, collapsed on the ground during the first match of the group stage.
In this tournament, a large jersey appeared on the ground to signal the start of every match, and the European Football Federation (UEFA) put Eriksen’s name and jersey number on the large jersey in Denmark.
Denmark will face off against the winner of the Netherlands-Czech match to advance to the semi-finals at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan at 1 am on the 4th.
