Wales knocked out of Euro 2020 after 4-0 defeat to Denmark

Written by on 26th June 2021

Wales have missed out on a place in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals after a 4-0 defeat to Denmark.

After finishing second to Italy in the group stage, fans had been hoping Gareth Bale’s team could triumph in the final 16.
But it was not to be, thanks to two goals from Kasper Dolberg, one from Joakim Maehl, and another deep into added time from Martin Braithwaite.

A poor day for Wales was compounded by a late red card for Harry Wilson.
Denmark now face either the Netherlands or Czech Republic in their quarter-final match on 3 July.

The final-16 match took place in Amsterdam, meaning many Welsh fans were unable to be there in person to see the game, due to Dutch coronavirus rules banning non-essential travel from the UK.

Only supporters who had followed the team from their previous game in Italy, or those living in EU and Schengen areas, could freely travel into the country for the game.
In the 2016 Euro tournament, Wales reached the semi-finals, crashing out following a 2-0 defeat to eventual winners Portugal.
