Denmark defeated the Czech Republic 2-1 in a tense European Championship quarter-final on Saturday, advancing to the competition’s semi-finals for the first time since 1992.

Denmark took the lead in the fifth minute when Thomas Delaney scored from a corner kick with a downward header, and the Danes doubled their advantage shortly before halftime when Kasper Dolberg scored following an inch-perfect pass from Joakim Maehle.

Patrik Schick of the Czech Republic scored four minutes after the restart, heading a Vladimir Coufal cross into the bottom corner for his fifth goal of the tournament, tying him for the tournament lead with Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal.

The Czechs had the upper hand in the second half, but Denmark hung on for the win and a place in the semi-finals at Wembley, where Kasper Hjulmand’s team will face either Ukraine or England, who will play in the last-quarter-final in Rome later on Saturday.
