Denmark’s coach Kasper Hjulmand on a controversial penalty that gave England the win “disappointed …”


    The match today between England and Denmark is a semifinal match and it ended with a controversial penalty call. Some people said it was a penalty but others said it wasn’t.   Kasper Hjulmand is Denmark’s coach and he has some harsh words for the officials.

    “We’re very, very disappointed, and it’s hard for me to talk about,” Hjulmand said after Wednesday’s loss at Wembley. “Maybe it will [be] easier for me to say how I feel in a few days.

    “We’re just very disappointed that we were so close to the final,” Hjulmand said. “We’re disappointed it was decided that way. … It was a penalty that shouldn’t have been a penalty, and that annoys me right now. We’re disappointed, we’re very disappointed.

    “It’s one thing to lose a game, that happens, but losing this way is just a disappointment, because these guys have fought a lot. It’s bitter; I think we have to digest this before we can describe these feelings, but it’s a bitter way to leave a tournament.”
