Wales defender Connor Roberts was forced off with what looked like a groin injury in the 42nd minute of their EURO 2020 Round of 16 clash against Denmark. The right-back was visibly distraught after he had to be substituted midway. He pulled his shirt over his head to express his disappointment.

Roberts suffered the left groin injury as he stretched for a pass. Roberts had been outstanding so far in the tournament and Wales fans were gutted to lose one  of their best players .

Losing Connor Roberts to injury proved to be a big blow for Wales as his replacement, Neco Williams was directly at fault for the 2nd goal Wales conceded. Williams gave the ball to Kasper Dolberg and the striker didn't miss.

Kasper Dolberg at the double for Denmark

Meanwhile, Kasper Dolberg became the the first Danish player to score two or more goals in a match at a major tournament since Nicklas Bendtner against Portugal at EURO 2012. Dolberg got a chance to be included in the starting eleven due to Poulsen’s injury and he proved to be the game-changer for Denmark with two well-taken goals.
