The Danish coach believes that injustice has been done to his team.
coach Kasper Hjulmand complained about the referee's decisions after his side lost 2-1 toEngland
in the Euro 2020 semi-final.
Last night, Denmark managed to overtake England at first, but with an own goal by Kjaer, England equalized, and the game was extended to extra time. In the first half of extra times, the referee awarded England a penalty kick after Joakim Maehle clashed with Raheem Sterling, a decision that many experts believe was faulty. Also, seconds before the collision, there were two balls in the ground that the referee had to stop the game because of this.
Harry Kane stood behind the penalty kick, and Kasper Schmeichel blocked his shot, but the England captain scored his team's second goal in the rebound. Hjulmand expressed dissatisfaction with these events and claimed that the referee should not have awarded a penalty to his team's disadvantage.
He told reporters:
"It was a penalty which should not have been a penalty. It is something which annoys me right now. We are very disappointed.
"You cannot pass by the ball on the pitch which has so much influence on the game.
"I know it sounds weird right now but I cannot help having these feelings. One thing is to lose a game, it happens, but losing this way is disappointing because these guys have fought a lot.
"It feels bitter but we have to digest this before we can discuss these feelings. It's a bitter way to leave the tournament.
"The way we lost makes it harder to understand why we lost. I have to be careful with what I say. We have an amazing group and we definitely can do something great again.
"Maybe it is easier for me to say how I feel in a few days."
