    Some grumblings (and rightfully so) about the nature of the winning penalty, but can’t argue that England didn’t deserve to go through.

    Denmark literally stopped playing in the second half. 4 shots in the first half, 1 in the second half and 1 in extra time.

    Were they fatigued or just instructed to play for penalties I don’t know, but it was disappointing to watch.

    LOL so much bitterness and delusion from anti-English biased ‘fans’, but England were easily the best team – how about a “may the best team win” attitude?
    Denmark had an decent spell for 10 minutes before their goal and England dominated the rest. For the penalty, Sterling, running at speed, got clipped by two players sandwiching him, neither of which touched the ball – it was 50:50 if it should’ve been given. But Christensen ran into Shaw and fell over for the free kick they scored from, which then should have been saved. Denmark only had 2 other shots on target. The stats, and the eye test, clearly showed England deserved victory, including the England 3.23-0.30 Denmark expected goals stat (which this website should include in the stats table, so we can get a screenshot).
