The “knockout” stage of Euro 2020 kicked off today (Saturday) with a big 0: 4 victory for Denmark over Wales, which gave us at the end the first place to reach the quarterfinals. The Danes, who also scored a quartet in the closing round of the home leg, enjoyed a particularly big day for striker Caspar Dolberg, who scored a great double and mentioned oblivion when it comes to his team.
Dolberg, who previously starred in the Ajax uniform, arrived tonight for a game at the Johan Cruyff Arena when he first played for Denmark in place of the injured Yusuf Poulsen. Remember, Christian Eriksen is also not part of coach Caspar Yumland’s staff, so a lot of responsibility fell on his feet. Dolberg, Who stood the test in a big way and said at the end: “I felt like I was playing at home. This stadium is very special for me and it was a fantastic evening. It was easy for me to fit into the game because our team is strong and united.“
In fact, Dolberg’s duo tonight on Dutch soil was the first Danish player in the Eurozone since Nicklas Bendtner’s appearance against Portugal in 2012. Beyond that, Dolberg is the first to score a double for his team in the knockout stage of the European Championship since Kim Wilport, who did so in the 1992 final against Germany, when then Denmark also won.
On the other hand, the disappointing Wales once again went home early. The one who was particularly disappointed at the end of the game is the captain and big star Gareth Bale, Who arrived at the interview post after the last whistle but abandoned the interview even before it ended. “We did not want it to end like this. I think we started the game well, but after that we conceded a goal and it changed everything. I think there was an offense in the second goal of Denmark but there is no point in making an excuse now. We missed some opportunities in the game but I think there are some things to take from this evening ” said Bail Before he left.
