The Czech Republic was part of Group D at Euro 2020, along with England, Scotland and Croatia.

With four points accumulated, the Czech Republic qualified in the eighth place on the 3rd place.

Benefiting from the extra man in the second half, the Czech Republic won 2-0 against the Netherlands and qualified for the quarterfinals.
On the other hand, Denmark was not quoted with very high chances to reach this phase of the competition. The Danes were one step away from giving up this final tournament, after in the first match, the midfielder Christian Eriksen suffered a heart attack. Despite all these problems, Denmark went on to lose in the first two games, 1-0 to Finland and 2-1 to Belgium. In the decisive match with Russia, Denmark played the best match from Euro 2020 and qualified in the eighth. The duel with Wales promises to be a balanced one, but Denmark took full advantage of the Welshmen's mistakes and won the match with the score of 4-0.
