Mikkel Damsgaard Scores The First Free-Kick Of Euro 2020 And It Was An Absolute Banger

Mikkel Damsgaard produced a moment of magic to open the scoring against England, bagging a thunderous free-kick in their semi-final clash.

Denmark starlet Damsgaard smashed home from 30-yards out to net the first free-kick of Euro 2020.

With the inside of his right-foot, the 21-year-old connected perfectly with the ball that flew into the back of the net and past a hapless Jordan Pickford.

Despite the spectacular hit, ITV pundit Gary Neville slammed Pickford's attempt at saving the free-kick - claiming the Everton man should have done better.

Damsgaard's stunning strike is the first goal England have conceded this tournament, with Pickford keeping five clean sheets thus far.

The Three Lions, though, hit back nine minutes later thanks a brilliant team move.

Harry Kane pierced a pass to Bukayo Saka who picked out Raheem Sterling, with Simon Kjaer getting the last touch as the ball bundled its way in.
