Kane double leads England to defeat Ukraine and reach the semi-finals

England qualified for the European Football Championship semi-finals for the first time in 25 years after a Harry Kane double helped Gareth Southgate’s team crush Ukraine 4-0 to set up a meeting with Denmark. Kane managed to open the scoring for his team four minutes after the start at the Olympic Stadium in Rome, to score the fastest goal for England in the history of the European Championships since 2004. Harry Maguire doubled the score with a powerful header less than a minute into the second half, before captain Kane added his second goal in the match and the third in the tournament four minutes later. Substitute Jordan Henderson scored the fourth goal when he scored his first international goal to ensure a comfortable victory for England and an easy rise to the semi-finals, where they will meet Denmark at Wembley next Wednesday for a seat in the final match at the same stadium.
