England skipper Kane followed in to score the winner after Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel saved his penalty in the first period of extra time.

It completed a comeback for England, who equalised via an own goal six minutes before half-time following Mikkel Damsgaard’s free-kick for the Danes on the half-hour mark.
