Kasper Hjulmand’s team sealed second in the group despite losing their first two matches

Denmark made European Championship history by progressing to the knockout rounds with a 4-1 win against Russia on Monday.

Mikkel Damsgaard, Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Christensen and Joakim Maehle were among the goals, while Artem Dzyuba converted a penalty for Russia.

With Finland losing to Belgium in the other game in Group B, Denmark were able to secure second place because of their superior goal difference.

What record did Denmark set?

It marks an incredible comeback for Kasper Hjulmand’s team after they suffered defeats to Finland and Russia earlier in the competition.

This is the first time a team has ever survived the group stage despite losing their first two matches.
