Dolberg netted twice, Denmark beats Wales 4-0 at Euro 2020 Last 16 Round, best stats.


 AMSTERDAM (AP) — Kasper Dolberg scored two goals in his old stadium to help Denmark beat Wales 4-0 and give the team a spot in the European Championship quarterfinals exactly two weeks after Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field during the team’s opening match.


 It was the second match in a row that Denmark scored four times, after beating Russia 4-1 to qualify for the round of 16 after losing its first two matches. Denmark is the first nation to score four or more goals in consecutive matches in the history of the European Championship.


 Both Eriksen and Dolberg played for Ajax, the team that plays its home matches at the Johan Cruyff Arena. Much of the crowd of 16,000 was cheering on the Danes.
