Wales 0-4 Denmark
Wales faced a reality check as they were humbled by an utterly dominant Denmark in the Round of 16 of Euro 2020.
The Euro 2016 semifinalists – Wales – went down inside the first half-hour as Kasper Dolberg opened the scoring for the Danes at Amsterdam.
Dolberg curled a fine effort past Welsh goalkeeper Danny Ward to put Denmark in the lead and go into the break with a one-goal advantage.
The Danish star proved to be a menace for Wales as he doubled his tally shortly after the first half. Dolberg pounced on a defensive error by Neco Williams and made it count to put Denmark two to the good after just 48 minutes.
That seemed to have knocked the wind out of Wales’ sails as they struggled to create any sort of momentum in the game.
Joakim Maehle then put the game beyond doubt as he netted late on in the 88th minute and that sealed the deal for Denmark as they were up 3-0 after 88 minutes.
Things went from bad to worse for Wales as they say Harry Wilson sent off in the 90th minute. The substitute went into a late tackle on Maehle that warranted a red card.
Barcelona forward Martin Brathwaite then joined the party as he scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time to complete the 4-0 rout.
