Euro 2020- Denmark beat Belgium 2-1: Belgium advances to Last 16 as Thorgan Hazard and De Bruyne steal the show: 

Denmark wasted little time taking the lead through Poulsen, who rolled his right-footed shot into the far corner after Danish pressure forced a giveaway outside of the Belgium box.

Denmark vs Belgium highlights: Yussuf Poulsen’s strike in the second minute helped the Danes to a surprising early lead, but a sensational Kevin De Bruyne came off the bench to set up one goal and score another to put Belgium into the knockout stage with six points from two matches.

Belgium equalised in the 54th minute when second-half substitute Kevin De Bruyne — making his first appearance since an injury in the Champions League final last month — latched onto a Romelu Lukaku pull-back, let two charging defenders slide by and calmly found an unmarked Thorgan Hazard who thumped home from close range.

Denmark vs Belgium highlights: De Bruyne put Belgium in front with another brilliant piece of play 16 minutes later. The Manchester City midfielder raced onto a layoff from substitute Eden Hazard and beat Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to the near post with an stoppable low strike with his left foot.

Euro 2020, Group B: The result leaves Denmark with zero points from two opening group game ahead of their final match with Russia on Monday. Belgium will play Finland in their final match on the same day.
