    FT: WALES 0-4 DENMARK

    Just minutes after the second half kicked off, Denmark found themselves two ahead and it was Dolberg again.

    Braithwaite raced down the right-hand side and delivered a good cross into the penalty area.

    Williams' clearance fell to Dolberg and the striker made no mistake with the finish.

    Maehle – who was absolutely fantastic as a wing-back on both flanks – got in on the act.

    Brentford's Jensen clipped the ball wide to the Atalanta wing-back, and he cut inside of Davies and fired into the top-right corner.

    Minutes later, Wilson picked of Wales' second straight red card of the tournament, hacking down Maehle late on.

    Two out of the three red cards show at the European Championship this summer have been shown to a Welsh player.

    And finally, Braithwaite finished the game off, finding the bottom-left corner from the edge of the box.

    The linesman flagged it for offside, the VAR overturned the decision and the goal stood.

    90+3. NO GOAL!

    Denmark break through Maehle down the right-hand side.

    And the flying wing-back clips the ball into the path of Cornelius on the edge of Wales' penalty area.

    The towering striker touches the ball into Braithwaite first-time.

    Braithwaite touches the ball into space and fires into the bottom corner!

    But the linesman raises his flag up for offside and the goal won't stand…. but what a move by Denmark.

    Hang on a minute…….. VAR to take a look.

    85. HOW HAS THAT NOT GONE IN?!

    Jensen plays a one-two from the corner and whips a cross towards the back post hoping to find Cornelius.

    The imposing forward sends his header bouncing into the ground and towards the far post, but Ward manages to claw the ball away.

    Braithwaite picks the ball up five yards from goal and sends a tame effort bouncing off the post!

    Andersen snaps at the rebound and sends a shot whistling wide of the far post!

    How. Has. That. Not. Gone. In.

    81. Cornelius is like a Danish wrecking ball as he bulldozes his way through Williams and Allen.

    The ball is worked wide to Braithwaite on the right flank, and the Barca man delivers a cross towards the near post.

    But his effort deflects behind for another Danish corner.

    Cornelius looks lively again as he tries to weave his way inside and out of Mepham to open up a shooting opportunity.

    And the Wales winger is booked as a result.
