For William Kvist, the European Championships have come to an end after the group stage. The VfB midfielder and the Danish national team were beaten 2-1 by Germany in the final group match and head home for a less than pleasing early holiday.
Midfielder William Kvist
On a knife-edge
The decider as to who would progress from Group B was a tense affair, with all four teams maintaining a chance of progression. Denmark and Germany played out a closely fought battle but, in the end, the class of Jögi Löw’s side proved too much for the feisty Danes. Despite solid performances from VfB midfielder William Kvist, the Danish national team bow out of the competition.
Germany’s goals were scored by Lukas Podolski (19’), in his 100th game for his country, and Lars Bender (80’). At half time the scores stood at 1-1, after Michael Krohn-Dehli headed an equaliser.
In the end, there was to be no joy for Denmark though, despite having started the competition with a shock 1-0 win over also eliminated Holland.
