KASPER DOLBERG shattered ten-man Wales’ Euro 2020 dreams with a double in Amsterdam.
The Nice striker smashed past Danny Ward either side of half-time before Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite’s late finishes to fire Denmark into the quarter-finals.
The first came with 27 minutes on the clock when the Nice forward latched on to the ball, opened up his body and caught a sweet strike into the corner.
And just three minutes into the second half, Dolberg made it two.
Kieffer Moore appeared to be fouled in the build up but the referee allowed play to continue.
Denmark broke down the right and when sub Neco Williams passed a clearance straight to the in-form Dolberg, the 23-year-old gladly accepted the gift-wrapped present to blast beyond Ward.
Wales offered virtually nothing in attack as they struggled to test Ward’s Leicester team-mate Kasper Schmeichel at the other end.
With a minute to go in normal time, Maehle made it three by cutting in on to his left foot and finding the top corner emphatically from close range.
To make matters worse, there was still time for Harry Wilson to see red as the Dragons lost their heads.
And then deep into injury time, Martin Braithwaite’s left-foot finish was allowed to stand after a lengthy VAR check.
