Euro 2020: UEFA to punish England over penalty incident during 2-1 win over Denmark



UEFA have charged England after a fan shone a laser pointer at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel’s face during their Euro 2020 semi-final victory on Wednesday night.

The incident happened as Harry Kane took a penalty during extra time to make it 2-1.

The game had ended 1-1 after regulation time at Wembley.

Mikkel Damsgaard gave the Danes the lead with a sublime free-kick, before Simon Kjaer diverted the ball past Schmeichel, to bring the game level.
