Manchester United fans react as Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw help England to reach the Euro 2020 final
It was a historic night at Wembley as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off a spirited Denmark side who have been the dark horses of the tournament. The Danes took the lead on the night, thanks to a stunning free-kick by Mikkel Damsgaard.
The Three Lions drew level before the break via a Simon Kjaer own goal. Maguire could have given England the lead in the second half but was stopped by a stunning save from Kasper Schmeichel.
The game was settled in extra time after Raheem Sterling won a penalty for England. Skipper Harry Kane scored off the rebound to send Wembley wild. Both Southgate and Roberto Mancini now have the chance to write their name into football history.
Both Shaw and Maguire played the whole 120 minutes and looked solid in their respective positions. They have been amongst England’s top players this tournament and it showed once again. England now face Italy in the final. It is fair to say that the United duo will need to be at the top of their game against the Azzurri.
We now take a look at how fans reacted to the result.

Is it a coincidence that the timeline of Luke Shaw of starting to raise his game coincides with when Harry Maguire joined #MUFC? Because Harry’s 80% passes are to Luke.— Schelley #GlazersOut (@mufctweet19) July 8, 2021
