Euro 2020: England relishing ‘incredible’ Wembley return – Harry Kane

Raheem Sterling set England on their way to a memorable victory with a third goal in four matches at the Finals after 75 minutes before Harry Kane answered his critics with a second to send 45,000 supporters inside the national stadium into delirium.

England can take another step towards achieving their vision of winning a major tournament when they return to Wembley for their European Championship semifinal against Denmark, captain Harry Kane said.

Kane scored twice in England’s 4-0 quarterfinal win over Ukraine in Rome on Saturday, as they reached the last four of a Euro tournament for the first time in 25 years.

Gareth Southgate’s side will return to England’s national stadium for the penultimate stage of the tournament on Wednesday, which Kane described as an “incredible” occasion.

“We know it’s going to be a tough game. But we know as well if we get it right and play how we know we can, then we have a great opportunity to get to a final,” Kane said.

“A lot of us playing now won’t have the opportunity to have a big game like that at Wembley in a major tournament again. It’s an opportunity for us and we have to grab it with both hands. We have to enjoy being in that environment.

“Coming off the back of the Germany game, the spirits were high and the stadium was rocking so hopefully we can use that energy again and really take the game to Denmark.”

England will take on Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday. The two faced off in the Nations League last year, playing out a 0-0 draw in September before Denmark secured a 1-0 win at Wembley the following month.
