 Euro 2020: England Focus Turns To Italy For Final

Captain Harry Kane insists England must be on the right side of history after reaching the Euro 2020 final.

The skipper scored an extra-time winner – following up after Kasper Schmeichel saved his penalty – to beat Denmark 2-1 and set up a showdown with Italy at Wembley on Sunday.

The Three Lions had to come from behind after Mikkel Damsgaard’s free-kick opener was cancelled out by Simon Kjaer’s own goal.

Kane will be just the second man to lead England into a major tournament final after Bobby Moore lifted the World Cup in 1966 and the striker knows the job is not yet done.

He said: “It’s going to be an amazing occasion and I’m extremely proud leading the boys out in any game, no matter making history and getting to our first final.

“As the game gets closer I’m sure the excitement and nerves will kick in. It will be a special day but there will be a winner and a loser and we have to make sure we are on that winning side.

“We want it to be a special day for everyone. It’s hard to take it all in at the moment but I’m sure we will all enjoy it.
