Captain Harry Kane needed just four minutes to break the deadlock from a fine Raheem Sterling pass and England were even quicker in their start to the second half.

Harry Maguire headed in a free-kick within a minute of the restart and Kane added an immediate third before Jordan Henderson nodded the fourth in the 63rd.

England will meet Denmark one game away from reaching a first final since they won the World Cup in 1966.

Denmark, European champions in 1992, beat the Czech Republic 2-1 earlier Saturday in Baku.

The first semifinal at Wembley, which also hosts the July 11 final, is Spain v Italy on Tuesday.
