Call it the European of Records. Not that England won 4-0 against Ukraine and advanced to the semifinals, but because at least 3 records were set in the match played in Rome. The Three Lions will face Denmark on Wednesday.
England found the goal very quickly. Four minutes was enough for England. It was Harry Kane who scored for the Three Lions. The Spurs star caught the Ukrainian defense by surprise and did not forgive. England had two good chances, but the Ukrainian goalkeeper responded well. Ukraine was vague on its exits.
With the second kick, Maguire finds the second goal after a beautiful header. Luke Shaw perfect with that cross. After 4 minutes, it is Shaa who crosses again and Kane does not forgive with his head, bringing the figures to 0-3. Three goals for the English captain in this European.
In 63 ‘comes the fourth goal. After a corner kick, Henderson nicely dodges and heads the ball. His first goal for the English national team after 61 appearances, starting in 2010.
Never before had 3 goals been scored with a header in a European match. Goes to 30 goals per head Euro 2020, another record. While the average of goals reaches 2.80, again a record.
Five games in a row without conceding a goal in a major competition for England. This had never been achieved before. Four wins, 1 draw and 8 goals scored, a balance to be envied.
