It proved to be Schmeichel’s first clean sheet of the tournament, while Denmark became the first team to score four or more goals in consecutive matches in European Championships history.

After both Ward and Schmeichel played 90 minutes in the Dutch capital, Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet could both be in action on Sunday night, when their Belgium side face Portugal in Seville.

Roberto Martínez's men won all three of their fixtures in Group B, beating Russia, Finland and Denmark to finish top of their pool.
