No one showed up to give England victory in Denmark in the final minutes, just like Sterling in Iceland. He was about to put on the Kane hero suit in 93 ‘, but Zaka avoided the goal under sticks.

Dominating England in the first period, they found themselves before a Denmark that raised a duel very similar to the one that Iceland played against the ‘pross’, with the big difference that the Danes did want to hurt when they had the ball. In this way, a fierce Nordic defense did not allow the Southgates to approach the Schmeichel area, while the attackers of the ‘red dynamite’ took advantage of the few opportunities they had.

Dolberg and Braithwate narrowly missed the goal, while in the final minutes before half-time Pickford saved a close shot from the former.

England tried to put one more gear in their game after the holiday and it seemed that the goal was going to come. Kane headed high and Sterling got Schmeichel to work, but the goal was resisting. Meanwhile, Denmark did not renounce anything and, in one of the few options they had in the second half, Eriksen sent a loose ball up into the area.

Occasion in discount

The match broke down in the closing minutes and there were chances for the two contenders, but none like Kane’s in injury time. The Tottenham striker picked up a long kick from his defense, slashed Schmeichel on his way out and finished off an empty goal, but Zanka cleared the hide for a corner under post.

The ‘pross’ did not have the same fortune as in the first day. How good it would have been for them to forget the incident that forced Southgate to expel young Foden https://worldbets.top/en/1xbet/ and Greenwood from the rally …

Iceland, the team that blocked England’s path at Euro 2016, came close to embittering the English and only a penalty in added time saved Gareth Southgate’s men, who also saw the Icelanders miss a maximum penalty .

The match, decided by two penalties in added time, one scored by England and the other missed by Iceland, had hardly any scoring chances and went from a horrific first half to an almost worse second.

A draw could please Iceland, but not England, who after ten months out of international football returned with a boring, bland image and unable to avenge with determination those who fell in a humiliating way in Nice four years ago. 

During the first 45 minutes, the English were content to have the ball and Iceland only created danger from set pieces with a foul and a corner that ended in nothing.

Iceland’s defense, which was practically made up of eleven players, simply waited behind, repelling the timid and uncreative internships from England.

On top of that, bad luck joined forces with Gareth Southgate’s team, who scored a cross at the far post that Harry Kane rushed to drive. However, without time for celebrations, the linesman annulled the goal for offside.

The repetition soon exposed the assistant, since the illegal position did not exist, but the absence of VAR in Reykjavik kept the game going with the initial 0-0 in the bland first half.

Only the most optimistic were confident that Iceland would try to do something else in the second 45 minutes. Without any kind of pressure, the Nordics remained sheltered behind and hoping that a midfield led by Eric Dier and James Ward-Prowse would not generate danger. 

In the end, England’s chances were lost when Jadon Sancho or Raheem Sterling ran out of angle on either side and with two or three Icelanders in front. 

Faced with the impotence of not overcoming the Icelandic wall, one of the players who suffered in his flesh the blushing elimination in France blew himself up. Walker, who already had a yellow for the first half, threw himself like crazy to the ground and committed a foul that earned him the second card. On the street. 

The truth is that the script hardly changed. Iceland dared a little more, but giving the tie for good, and England was not affected much by the expulsion, because it was still not able to penetrate the three defensive lines mounted by Iceland.

But on a corner kick in the last minute, Ingason blocked a shot from Sterling with one hand and the referee awarded the penalty. Sterling himself converted it, but it wasn’t all said. Iceland had one last pitch left in the area and Gomez knocked down an Icelandic striker. The referee saw it, decreed a penalty and Bjarnason sent it over the crossbar.

After three days of mourning for the death of Diego Armando Maradona and after a series of tributes in each of their matches, the Argentine Professional League faced the fifth day, which included victories by River Plate, Racing Club and Independiente, in addition to the victory for Gymnastics, the last team that the footballer led before his death.

Maradona dies

In each meeting of the renamed Diego Maradona Cup, all the players jumped to the different playing fields with a shirt with the 10 on the back and the name of the star, while there was a minute of applause and the image of the former Albiceleste captain was projected on the screens of each of the stadiums.

With images of deep regret, which included tears, dedications to goals and constant memories, the Professional League Cup began the dispute on its fifth day.

With this victory, Gimnasia was next to Vélez as leaders of Zone 6 with eight units with a point advantage over Huracán, which this Sunday will host Patronato de Paraná.

In another outstanding match this Saturday, River Plate won 0-2 as a visitor against Rosario Central with goals from Paraguayan Robert Rojas and Damián Martínez, against their fence.

After this result, and the goalless draw of Godoy Cruz and Banfield, in Zone 3 both River Plate -leader with 12 points- and ‘Drill -guide with 10 units- qualified for the Championship Zone of the next phase of the tournament .

Independiente agreed to the same phase in Zone 2, after his 1-2 victory over Colón in Santa Fe with goals from Jonathan Menendez and Alan Velasco, while Brian Fernández discounted for the locals.

Both the winner and the loser guaranteed their passports to the Championship Zone, while Central Córdoba de Santiago del Estero together with Defense and Justice were sentenced to the Complementation Zone.

In the last match of this Saturday day, Racing Club achieved its first units of this tournament by beating Unión 1-0 with the goal converted by Carlos Alcaráz.
