Denmark qualified for the knockout rounds of Euro 2020 with a dramatic 4-1 win against Russia at Parken Stadium, while Group B rival Finland fell to Belgium.

The Belgians swept the group, winning all three games, with Denmark finishing second on three points and Finland trailing on goal difference.

Mikkel Damsgaard put the Danes ahead in the 38th minute with a beautiful curling shot, and Yussuf Poulsen pounced on a bad back pass from Roman Zobnin to score the second in the 59th.

Artyom Dzyuba pulled one back from the penalty spot for Russia in the 70th minute but a thunderous strike from Andreas Christensen and a fourth from Joakim Maehle completed the rout. Denmark will meet Wales in the last 16 in Amsterdam on June 26.
