Denmark 1-2 Belgium: Red devils through to last 16 as Kevin De Bruyne inspires Belgium to come from behind to beat Denmark

Belgium Kevin De Bruyne Euro 2020

Belgium are through to the last 16 of Euro 2020 after a Kevin De Bruyne masterclass inspired them to come from behind to beat Denmark as fans and players paid tribute to Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen was taken to the hospital after collapsing on the pitch at the Parken Stadium pitch during Saturday's match against Finland.

Before and throughout the game, tributes were paid to Denmark's influential number 10, with the game being stopped in the 10th minute for a minute of applause by players, officials, and fans.

Yussuf Poulsen gave the hosts a perfect start after slotting in following a mistake in the Belgium defence just one minute and 39 seconds into the contest.

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne came on at the start of the second half and immediately transformed the game.

He was involved in both the equaliser and the winner, taking a pass from Romelu Lukaku before excellently finding Thorgan Hazard to tap in with 20 minutes remaining after a fantastic move initiated by Lukaku.

Martin Braithwaite came close to grabbing a late leveller for Denmark, but his header went over the bar.

With the win, Belgium now lead Group B with six points from two matches, while Denmark is in last place with 0 points.

For the first time since the horrifying scenes of Eriksen collapsing on the pitch during the weekend, Denmark were playing at the Parken Stadium.

Both sets of fans showed their support for the player by writing messages to him on banners in the stands, and the end of the Danish national anthem was met with thunderous applause, which was only surpassed two minutes later when Denmark seized the lead following a defensive blunder by Belgium.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg pounced on a bad clearance by Jason Denayer and soon found Poulsen, who tapped the ball home.

Belgium, who had beaten Russia 3-0 in their group opener, struggled to get going as the pressure of the event became too much for them.

De Bruyne's entrance after the break changed the game, as he put in a fantastic substitute performance.

The midfielder has only recently recovered from a fractured nose and eye socket, but his return and display as a substitute will improve the Belgians drastically.
