Denmark's dream run at Euro 2020 after two opening defeats and the Christian Eriksen drama continued on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic for a place in the semi-finals.

Thomas Delay headed the opening goal in the fifth minute and Kasper Dolberg made it 2-0 in the 42nd in sweltering Baku.

Patrik Schick revived the Czech's hopes in the 49th with his fifth goal of the tournament but they didn't manage an equalizer.

Denmark beat the Czechs for the first time at the Euro finals, having lost 3-0 at the same stage in 2004 and also 2-0 in the 2000 group stage.

They are in the last four for the first time since winning the trophy in 1992 and will face England or Ukraine on Wednesday at Wembley for a place in the July 11 final.
