Joakim Mæhle Has Channeled His Inner Quaresma To Produce Euro 2020's Greatest Assist

Denmark defender Joakim Mæhle's outrageous outside of the boot cross to set up Kasper Dolberg will go down as Euro 2020's greatest assist.

The Danes took an early lead against the Czech Republic thanks to Thomas Delaney's header inside five minutes.

But the play of the half would come in the 42nd minute when Mæhle received the ball on the left wing.

Naturally a right-sided player, the 24-year-old decided to fizz a cross into the box in the most unorthodox way.

He clipped the ball into the Czech box and Dolberg tapped home to double his side's lead.

Mæhle has been a breakout star in this tournament and it's his third goal involvement in three games, after scoring against both Russia and Wales.

Fans have reacted to the cross and they think nothing will be able to top it.

Kasper Hjulmand's side have been in control for most of the game and have nullified the Czech threat, especially forward Patrik Schick.

Victory for Denmark would set up a massive clash with one of England or Ukraine on Wednesday evening.

It would be Denmark's fourth appearance in the semi-finals of a European Championship.

Do you think there is any way back for the Czech Republic in this game?

Let us know in the comments.
