Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Denmark will play either Netherlands or Czech Republic in the last eight next Saturday in Baku. Wales will return to action in September against Belarus on the road in their World Cup qualifying campaign.
Denmark advance to the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 with a 4-0 hammering of Wales at the Johan Cruijff Arena. Kasper Dolberg fired the Danes ahead in the first half before notching a second following a mistake by Neco Williams after the restart. Joakim Maehle put the game beyond doubt with a composed finish and Martin Braithwaite then put the icing on the cake with a fourth in stoppage time. Harry Wilson was dismissed for the Dragons late on to cap a miserable night for Robert Page's men.

90' + 4'
GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! BRAITHWAITE HAS HIS GOAL AS VAR OVERTURNS THE DECISION!!!!! 4-0 DENMARK!!!!! VAR spots that the forward is onside as he latches on to a pass from Cornelius. Mepham's boot is the factor that allows Braithwaite's precise strike to stand. It's a fine finish and he deserves the goal for his performance.
90' + 4'
Braithwaite latches on to a knockdown from Cornelius before dispatching a fine strike past Ward. However, his celebrations are short lived as the flag goes up for offside. Hold on. VAR will have a look...
90' + 3'
Bale fouls Jensen, and his reaction to the foul sees him booked as he sarcastically claps the referee.
OFF! Wilson receives his marching orders for a lazy challenge on Maehle. It's an incredibly soft decision from the referee. However, Wilson has to go.
Jensen spots Maehle in acres of space on the right flank and supplies a perfect ball for the defender to collect and score.
GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! MAEHLE SURELY SENDS DENMARK INTO THE LAST EIGHT!!!!! 3-0!!!!! The Danes score their third goal of the contest as Maehle blasts home a left-footed strike from close range. The full-back collects a cross-field pass from Jensen in the right-inside channel. He cuts back on to his left foot before planting his effort into the top-right corner. A superb finish.
OFF THE POST! Wales are cut open at the back once more. Cornelius fires towards goal, but his effort is saved by the fingertips of Ward. Braithwaite tries to turn the ball home, but is denied by the right post. Vestergaard goes for the rebound, only to strike the left post.
Bale brings down Maehle on the charge down the right flank. Wales are showing signs of frustration.
Cornelius leads another great charge at the Wales defence and refuses to go down. He offloads to Braithwaite in space on the right flank, who steers a low cross into the middle. Rodon has to act to deny Maehle at the near post.
OVER! Braithwaite goes for the strike at goal from 25 yards from the resulting free-kick, but he just lifts his effort over the bar.

Damsgaard is withdrawn in the final third for Denmark as Norgaard enters the action.
Delaney makes way in the middle of the park and is replaced by Jensen.

Wales need a response in the final third. The Dragons have been too quiet in the early stages of the second half.
Ramsey surges forward down the right flank and he has Moore and Bale sprinting into the box. However, his low cross is cleared by Christensen.
James and Williams combine to allow the latter to lift a cross into the box. Bale rises in the box, but his glancing header travels wide of the right post.
Dolberg is the second Denmark player to score two goals in a knockout game at the European Championships after Henrik Larsen v Netherlands in 1992.
Wales are not happy with the referee as they believe Moore was fouled by Kjaer before Denmark countered. However, a resulting VAR check allows the goal to stand.
GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! DOLBERG DOUBLES DENMARK'S LEAD!!!! 2-0!!!! A horrendous clearance from Williams presents Dolberg with a great opening that he smashes home. Braithwaite surges down the right flank and he delivers a low cross into the middle. Williams plants his clearance straight at Dolberg six yards out. The striker takes a touch before firing low and hard into the bottom-right corner.
Wales haven't come from behind to win a game since beating Belgium at Euro 2016 when Ashley Williams, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes scored
We're back under way in Amsterdam.
Wales enjoyed a bright start to the contest and Gareth Bale had a couple of decent efforts at goal. However, once Denmark took control the Dragons could not break out of their own half. Robert Page faces a massive team-talk to inspire a response from his team.
Denmark take a 1-0 lead into their Euro 2020 round-of-16 clash against Wales at the break. Kasper Dolberg put the Danes ahead in the 27th minute, curling a precise effort beyond the reach of Danny Ward. After the opener Kasper Hjulmand's men controlled the contest, forcing Wales to hang on until the interval to remain in the contest. The Danes are 45 minutes away from a place in the quarter-finals.

Wales are on the ropes as Denmark are having their way with their opponents in the final third. The Dragons need to ease the pressure.
Denmark have scored more goals from outside the box than any other side at Euro 2020 (three), while since 1980 only France (five in 1984) and Belgium (four in 2016) have scored more from distance in a single edition of the competition.
Damsgaard makes a good run into the final third to latch on to Maehle's offload. He works a pass into the feet of Dolberg, who does the rest with a great effort.

We're under way at the Johan Cruijff Arena.
Denmark have won each of their last three competitive meetings with Wales in a run stretching back to June 1999. This is the first meeting between the sides in a major tournament.
Denmark have made two changes to their side from their win over Russia last time out. Daniel Wass is ill and is replaced at by Styger Larsen at right wing-back. Yussuf Poulsen is also missing for the Danes as he is out with an injury problem. Dolberg repalces his team-mate as the spearhead of the attack.
Wales have made three changes to their side that was beaten 1-0 by Italy last time out. Davies, Mepham and Moore are all restored to the starting line-up. Gunter and Neco Williams drop to the bench, while Ethan Ampadu is unavailable after his dismissal against the Azzurri. Moore returns to spearhead the attack, supported by Ramsey, James and Bale.
DENMARK SUBS: Joachim Andersen, Robert Skov, Andreas Skov Olsen, Zanka, Christian Norgaard, Jonas, Jonas Wind, Andreas Cornelius, Frederik Ronnow, Mathias Jensen, Anders Christiansen, Nicolai Boilesen.
DENMARK (3-4-3): Kasper Schmeichel; Andreas Christensen, Simon Kjaer, Jannik Vestergaard; Jens Stryger Larsen, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Thomas Delaney, Joakim Maehle; Martin Braithwaite, Mikkel Damsgaard, Kasper Dolberg.
WALES SUBS: Wayne Hennessey, Chris Gunter, Neco Williams, Tom Lockyer, Harry Wilson, Tyler Roberts, Jonny Williams, David Brooks, Adam Davies, Dylan Levit, Ben Cabango, Matthew Smith.
WALES (4-2-3-1): Danny Ward; Connor Roberts, Chris Mepham, Joe Rodon, Ben Davies; Joe Morrell, Joe Allen; Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Daniel James; Kieffer Moore.
Denmark endured an emotional period during the group stage after Christian Eriksen's cardiac arrest. The Danes then suffered back-to-back defeats to Finland and Belgium to put their place in the competition in jeopardy. However, they were nothing short of sensational in their final outing to crush Russia 4-1 in Copenhagen, securing their place in the knockout stage. It will be a tough task for Kasper Hjulmand and his team, but a peformance of the calibre of their last game will surely give them a great opportunity.
Wales advanced through the group stage, finishing second behind Italy after claiming four points from their three fixtures. The Dragons suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Azzurri in their last outing, but Rob Page will be optimistic that his side can make another surge towards the latter stages of the competition as they did five years ago. Although Gareth Bale has not found the back of the net yet, he is usually the man for the big occasion.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Euro 2020 round-of-16 clash between Wales and Denmark at the Johan Cruijff Arena.
