England produced a stunning performance in Rome and emerged 4-0 winners over Ukraine to set up a semi-final at Wembley against Denmark on Wednesday.

Harry Kane opened the scoring after only four minutes with a clinical finish following great work from Raheem Sterling, England’s standout player at the tournament.

Ukraine came back into it as the first half wore on but any fears were allayed almost immediately after the break when Harry Maguire powerfully headed home Luke Shaw’s exquisite free-kick.

Harry Kane added his second and England’s third five minutes after the break following some clever interplay between Mason Mount and Sterling. The ball eventually came to Shaw and his pinpoint cross was headed home by Kane.

England added a fourth when Jordan Henderson scored his first England goal after more than a decade of trying. He met Mason Mount’s corner and directed the ball across the keeper and into the net.

The few England fans inside the Stadio Olimpico were in a party mood for the bulk of the second half as their side has its best chance in living memory of winning a major trophy.
