In a whirlwind of events, Germany swiftly transitioned from disappointment to jubilation within a minute, propelled by pivotal VAR decisions that guided the host nation to a weather-disrupted 2-0 victory over Denmark, securing their spot in the European Championship quarterfinals on Saturday.

Denmark defender Joachim Andersen had a goal disallowed due to a marginal offside call in the 50th minute.

Shortly after, he conceded a penalty for handball during Germany’s subsequent attack.

Kai Havertz successfully converted the penalty, and Jamal Musiala scored a second goal in the 68th minute.

The match had a 25-minute suspension in the first half due to thunder, lightning, and heavy rain at Dortmund’s Westfalenstadion.

This victory marks Germany’s first knockout stage win in a major tournament since 2016, signaling their growing confidence after years of underperformance on the big stage.

They will face Spain or Georgia next and are the second team to advance from the round of 16, following Switzerland’s 2-0 win over defending champions Italy earlier in the day.

The game saw dramatic moments both on and off the field, with a significant delay caused by thunder and lightning around the 35th minute.

Despite initial adversity, Germany dominated proceedings after Havertz’s penalty conversion, culminating in Musiala’s goal, his third of the tournament, tying for the highest tally.
