Germany comes through easily at Euro 2022, while Denmark decides all or nothing

Germany set another milestone in their quest for Euro 2022 glory by beating Spain to secure first place in Group B and progress to the Quarters.

Earlier, Denmark had kept their hopes of another place in the last eight – and a showdown with hosts England – alive after beating Finland.

Here, the PA news agency looks back at Tuesday’s action.

Germany underlines references

The eight-time European champion has so far lived up to his honor in the fight for another title win.

Germany needed just three minutes to open the scoring at Brentford Community Stadium when Klara Buhl capitalized on a mistake by Spain goalkeeper Sandra Panos.

Captain Alexandra Popp headed in a second before half-time as Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side sent a powerful response to the Englishwoman’s impressive display on Monday night.

Spain struggled to break a stubborn German rear guard without the influence of injured star player Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas.

Manager Jorge Vilda will need to quickly regroup his side for the all-or-nothing showdown against Denmark when they return to Brentford on Saturday.

After Denmark were swept aside by Germany in the opening match, Denmark needed to post a positive result to assert themselves with a cry for elimination from the group.

Captain Pernille Harder scored the breakthrough as the Chelsea striker nodded with just 18 minutes to go.

Goalkeeper Lene Christensen, however, needed a fine fingertip save to deny Finnish substitute Jenny Danielsson a dramatic equalizer well into injury time.

Denmark coach Lars Sondergaard was relieved when the final whistle blew, also ending Finland’s hopes of progressing.

“We were nervous, of course, but I think the players did quite well when they came under pressure,” he said.

Lionesses straight back to business

An expectant nation could be ready to be mesmerized by England’s 8-0 win over Norway on Monday night in Brighton.

Skipper Leah Williamson insists Sarina Wiegman’s side are determined to keep an eye on things.

“Of course it is (a statement). Every game in football you want to win and play as well as you can and (on Monday) everything we touched in the first half was gold,” said the Arsenal defender.

“You have days like that, you also have days that aren’t like that, so we’re not going to get carried away.”

quote of the Day

I don’t think we were afraid of someone coming in. There is a beautiful quote that I like and it goes: “No one wins for fear of losing”. We go into every game to win.
