The German U21 national team will meet their “permanent opponent” Denmark on May 31st in the quarter-finals of the European Championship. The team of the former BVB co-trainer Albert Capellas Herms secured first place in Group C with a 3-0 (2-0) against Russia on Wednesday. Before that, the Danes had both against France (1-0) and Iceland (2-0) won.
Germany will meet their neighbors for the fourth European Championship in a row. In 2015 in Prague (3: 0), 2017 in Krakow (3: 0) and 2019 in Udine (3: 1) the DFB team each won the group stage.
If Germany wins the reunion in the Hungarian Szekesfehervar, it will be three days later in the semifinals either against the Netherlands or the offspring of the world champions France.
Surprisingly, England has already been eliminated. The co-favorite won the last game against Croatia 2-1 (1-0), but was only fourth in Group D due to the defeats against Switzerland (0-1) and Portugal (0-2).
The following goal by Croatia’s Domagoj Bradaric (90 + 2) prevented progress shortly before the end.
