Germany Beats Denmark 2-0 to Reach Euro 2024 Quarter-Finals

Germany advanced to the Euro 2024 quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory over Denmark in Dortmund, thanks to a Kai Havertz penalty and Jamal Musiala’s third goal of the tournament.

Despite thunderstorms delaying the match, Germany persevered, securing their first quarter-final appearance in four major tournaments. The game’s critical moments included a disallowed goal for Denmark’s Joachim Andersen and a controversial penalty awarded to Germany.

Match Highlights:

Weather Delays:

  • The game experienced a 20-minute delay due to severe weather conditions in Dortmund.

Key Disallowed Goal:

  • Joachim Andersen’s goal for Denmark was ruled out due to a marginal offside on Thomas Delaney during the build-up.

Kai Havertz’s Penalty:

  • Havertz converted a penalty following a handball by Andersen, putting Germany ahead.

Jamal Musiala’s Decisive Strike:

  • Musiala sealed the win with a second goal, outpacing Andersen and firing past Kasper Schmeichel.


  • Offside and Penalty Decisions: The VAR ruled Delaney offside by a fraction, and Andersen’s handball was deemed punishable, sparking debate on the fairness of such calls.

Next Steps:

  • Germany will face either Spain or Georgia in the quarter-finals, while Denmark reflects on the missed opportunity and controversial calls.


  • Roy Keane: Criticized Kasper Schmeichel’s decision-making on Musiala’s goal.
  • Sky Sports’ Lewis Jones: Described the handball rule as a farce and suggested reforms.
