Match 29 Euro 2020 Highlights - Russia took on Denmark in Copenhagen. Going into the match, the Russians knew a win would see them through to the Round of 16, with a draw probably good enough as well. While for Denmark, they needed a win to have any chance of qualifying for the next round.
Danes secure Round of 16 spot with Magnificent Win
Yes, after all the Danes have been through in this competition so far, I don't think many other than Russian and Finnish football fans would begrudge Kasper Hjulmand's side making it through to the Round of 16.
And what style they did it in, winning 4-1 with goals from Mikkel Damsgaard, Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Christensen and Joakim Maehle.
Even with the win in the bag, the Danes still needed a favour from Belgium to secure a place in the top 2. This would avoid the agonising wait to see if they would get one of the four best 3rd place finishes.
Luckily for Denmark, the Belgians did the job for them. Despite being held at 0-0 for well over an hour, Belgium's class finally seen them overcome the plucky Finns to win 2-0.
Once the result came through, the party at the Parken Stadium started. The atmosphere at the ground looked amazing all night, and the players certainly responded with an outstanding performance on the pitch.
