With this title, the well-known Italian sports newspaper Corriere dello Sport “, writes about what happened in the semifinals of” Euro 2020 “, in the case of Sterling penalty, turned into a goal by Harry Kane, but highly contested by the Danes and all continental football opinion. The media in question deals with the case as follows:
A penalty in extra time, much more than dubious, practically non-existent (action nullified by the presence of two balls on the field), opens the door to the final for England. The first final since 1966, when he won the world championship, again at ‘Wembley’.
The decision of Judge Makkelie, as well as that of the VAR, Van Boekel, not to intervene and to review the possible contact between Sterling and Maehle will be widely discussed. But, toughness aside, England faced a Denmark capable of taking the lead and giving everything (and more).
The Danes simply ran out of gas, paying for the long journey to Baku and the dozens of ups and downs of the tournament. The British took advantage of it, creating the best chances in the regular time of the final (…)
In extra time, the English siege on Schmeichel’s gate narrowed, but Sterling’s “snake” and McKelley’s whistle were needed for the turning point. If there is easy contact with Maehle, Sterling crashes to the ground. VAR does not correct. “Schmeichel waits at first, but can’t hold on to Kane on the second shot.”
