Harry Kane wasn’t going to stay quiet for long.

After scoring England’s second goal in the round of 16 victory over Germany for his first of Euro 2020, the star striker added two more scores in a dominant 4-0 win over Ukraine in the quarterfinal. Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson also found the back of the net for England, who looks like a championship side heading into the semifinal against Denmark.

Raheem Sterling, who accounted for all of England’s goals prior to Kane’s finish against Germany, provided the assist on the opener against Ukraine. Maguire found the net on a set piece early in the second half to double England’s lead before Kane scored his second goal to break the game open.

Henderson notched his first international goal off a corner kick as Ukraine’s back line struggled to mark England’s attackers. England scored twice on set pieces in the match.

Bettors anticipated this type of result with 80 percent of wagers coming in on the Three Lions, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. England was -250 entering the contest.

England’s semifinal match against Denmark will take place Wednesday, July 7 at 3 p.m. ET.
