Euro Cup: Denmark Pull Off Stunning Win Over Russia To Make Last 16

Denmark claimed an astonishing 4-1 victory over Russia to scramble into the last 16 of euro 2020 on a head-spinning night in Copenhagen.

It was Eriksen's replacement Mikkel Damsgaard who lit the touch paper with a 38th-minute wonder goal.

When a dreadful mistake by Russia's Roman Zobnin allowed Yussuf Poulsen to double the lead on the hour.

Denmark, Finland and Russia all finished group b on three points, behind Belgium, but the Danes edged through on goal difference and can now look forward to taking on Wales in Amsterdam while Russia are going home.

They are the first team in the history of the Euros to reach the knockout stage after losing their first two games but it took a while for the message to get through to Denmark's players.
