Edwin Cardona 42′

Euro 2020

The Euro 2020 tournament kicked off last week with a match between Turkey and Italy. The tournament, which was initially scheduled to take place last year, has not completed matchday one, which continues tomorrow with two matches. Here are the results and standings so far:

The second match of the tournament saw Wales and Switzerland split points. Switzerland had a big opportunity late in the game but things ended 1 – 1.

The third match of the tournament saw Finland and Denmark compete. The match saw a scary moment when Eriksen collapsed at the end of the first half. The good news is that he was treated right away and it was announced shortly after by the UEFA that he was stable and undergoing more tests to determine what happened.

Both teams agreed to resume the match later that day and Finland took the three points.

Finland 1 – 0 Denmark

Joel Pohjanpalo 60′
