Gareth Southgate: “We want to become European champions.”
England managed to impressively reach the semi-final on Saturday evening. Partly thanks to two goals from Harry Kane, Ukraine was defeated 0-4. National coach Gareth Southgate could hardly suppress his happiness after the game but remained sober in his comments to the international press: “We haven’t won anything yet. We want to go two steps further, and that means becoming European champions.”
“England in the semi-final at Wembley: fantastic!”
After this initial reaction, there was a bit of emotion from the always civilized Southgate: “It’s fantastic for our country: England in the semi-final at Wembley. Everyone can really look forward to that. It’s brilliant what our boys have shown. I know what will happen in London: one big party. They should enjoy it. Hopefully, we can continue it and also make it to the final!”
Kasper Hjulmand: “We have to stand against England.”
Denmark had not expected to make it to the semi-finals in advance, but now that the Danes have ended up there, national coach Kasper Hjulmand hopes for more. “I’d be lying if I said we’re already happy. We can enjoy this for a while, but in four days, we have to be back at the game against England.”
“We carry Eriksen in our hearts to Wembley.”
Hjulmand says he still thinks about Christian Eriksen every day and hopes that the semi-final against England will be won. “He should have been here; I still think about him every day. But we now carry him in our hearts to Wembley,” emphasizes Hjulmand. “It’s fantastic to see how much compassion and love these players give to each other. Maybe we are a symbol. We are happy to remind ourselves why we love football, what football can mean in the world,” said the Denmark national team coach.
