Watch.. Germany defeats Denmark by two and reaches the quarter-finals of Euro 2024 | sports

Kai Havertz and Jamal Musiala scored two goals in the second half, leading Germany to a 2-0 victory over Denmark – Saturday – and qualifying for the quarter-finals of the 2024 European Football Championship held in Germany.

Germany will meet in the quarter-finals the winner of the round of 16 match scheduled for today, Sunday, between Spain and Georgia.

Play in the match was stopped about 35 minutes after the starting whistle due to a thunderstorm and the players left the field. The stoppage continued for 20 minutes before the two teams resumed play. Neither team succeeded in scoring during the first half, ending in a goalless draw.

Denmark dealt a blow to the home side just two minutes into the second half when Joachim Andersen put the ball past goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, but the referee ruled the goal out for offside after resorting to video technology.

Germany took the lead through a goal scored by Havertz in the 53rd minute from a penalty kick awarded by the referee for handball, and the decision was made after resorting to video technology.

This came after VAR disallowed a goal for Nico Schlotterbeck due to a mistake during the build-up, as Germany put on a strong performance amidst huge crowd support, but Denmark’s performance improved during the match.

In the 68th minute, Musiala strengthened the German team’s lead with the second goal, making it the player’s third goal in the tournament.

Denmark’s net shook again in the first minute of stoppage time, as Florian Wirtz received a long pass and took off, then shot the ball into the net, but the referee disallowed the goal for offside, after resorting to video technology.

Switzerland eliminates Italy

Switzerland took advantage of Italy’s inability and lack of offensive solutions to qualify for the quarter-finals with merit, beating the last edition’s champion 2-0 on Saturday at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, which witnessed the “Azzurri” winning their fourth and last World Cup title in 2006.

Switzerland fully deserved to reach the quarter-finals for the second time in a row after being the better team throughout the match, which they won thanks to two wonderful goals by Remo Freuler (37) and Ruben Vargas (46).

Switzerland will meet in the quarter-finals the winner of the matches between the English and Slovak teams on Sunday in Gelsenkirchen, with the ambition of reaching the quarter-finals for the first time in its sixth participation.
