Two teams have secured their place for the next round of the tournament. 

The European Championship is getting into an exciting phase. Saturday commenced the competition's knockout stage, and there were two games played, which means two have now confirmed their place in the final eight.   

The first game held at Johan Cruff Arena in Amsterdam saw plenty of goals. Denmark were superb against Wales and thrashed them 4-0 to book their place into the next round.  

Kasper Dolberg scored two goals in either half of the match before Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite scored late to complete the demolition. 

Kasper Hjulmand's side has made a statement and showed signs that they could become the ultimate dark horse in this EURO edition. 

In another game, Italy came up against Austria at Wembley. The former European champions were clear favorites for many coming into the match, but it was anything but easy for them as Austria showed their grittiness.
