Emotional Ian Wright close to tears analysing England’s win over Denmark

England progressed to the final of the European Championships for the first time in the competition's history on Wednesday night with a 2-1 win over Denmark.

The Three Lions went behind after half an hour through a Mikkel Damsgaard free-kick from long range, before Raheem Sterling forced Simon Kjaer to put through his own goal just ten minutes later.

Harry Kane saw a 104th minute penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel, but the England captain fired in the rebound from close range to put England ahead with just 15 minutes of extra time remaining.

And after England saw out the game, former striker Ian Wright struggled to contain his emotions.

He said: "We’re a bit fortunate with the way it came about, we got a bit of luck. Maybe all of the years we’ve been waiting for that luck, we’ve got it now.

“I’m speechless simply because I’ve been dreaming of this day and it’s finally come, I can’t actually believe it’s here. It’s overwhelming.

Wright went on to heap praise on Sterling, who put in a storming display and was a constant problem for the Danish defence.

The Arsenal icon declared he felt the Manchester City forward was the difference in the game.

"I'll just say one name, Raheem Sterling," Wright said.

"He's attacked this tournament, and again today I think he was the difference.

"I'm delighted for him, I'm delighted for Gareth and I'm delighted for this country."
