England beat Denmark 2-1 in extra time in the Euro 2020 semi-finals at Wembley to advance to their first major final in 55 years.
Raheem Sterling suffered a foul in the box at the end of the first overtime period, with the referee pointing the point.
Captain Harry Kane only stepped in to see his penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel, but the rebound fell to him nicely and he kicked the ball home.
England saw the final overtime to send Wembley into ecstasies.
The Three Lions started the game brilliantly to the roar of the home fans; a big cross from Kane into the box just a little too far for Sterling – he got another chance a few minutes later but grazed him in Schmeichel’s arms.
The crowd calmed down as Denmark recovered more of the ball and began to probe England’s half.
Then, in the 30th minute, home fans were stunned when Mikkel Damsgaard’s free kick flew over the wall and beat Pickford.
It was England’s first goal conceded in the tournament and moments of nervousness followed as Denmark seemed in control.
But Wembley flipped again in the 39th minute when a Saka cross broke out of Denmark’s Simon Kjaer and found the back of the net as he tried to restrain Raheem Sterling from charging.
