England is still looking for its statement of Euro 2024 win after drawing with Denmark 1-1 at Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt on Thursday. Meanwhile, Spain looked dangerous once again, beating Italy 1-0 for its second win of the group stage.

Here's a recap of everything that happened on the star-studded seventh day of Euro 2024, with stats from FOX Sports Research:

Serbia 1, Slovenia 1

  • Slovenia has yet to record a win in five Euros matches all-time, now 0-1-4 (W-L-D) since their first appearance in 2000.
  • Zan Karnicnik scored his second goal ever for Slovenia in his 30th cap for his country.
  • Serbia's 95th minute goal was the latest equalizing goal in Euros history. Six goals have been scored in the second half of stoppage time at Euro 2024, which is already one more than in the whole of the 2020 edition.
  • Serbia scored with its 33rd cross, the most of any team in a game at Euro 2024 so far.
  • Dušan Tadić became the oldest player to start for Serbia/Yugoslavia at the Euros (35 years, 213 days), overtaking Dragan Stojkovic in 2000 (35 years, 114 days), who is the current Serbia manager.

England 1, Denmark 1

  • England conceded a goal, ending its five-match streak of clean sheets in the group stage at the Euros, which previously was the longest run in the competition's history.
  • Harry Kane scored his fifth career goal at the Euros, becoming the third Englishman to do so; Alan Shearer has seven, Wayne Rooney has six.
  • Kane's 13 goals at major tournaments are the most in English history. He is only the third player to score in four separate major tournaments for England (2018 World Cup, Euro 2020, Euro 2022 World Cup, Euro 2024), after Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney.
  • Jude Bellingham became the first England player to make 10 appearances at a major tournament while younger than 21.
  • Jordan Pickford made his 21st major tournament appearance, overtaking Peter Shilton's record for the most by an England goalkeeper.
  • Morten Hjulmand's goal for Denmark was the 13th from outside the box this tournament, already more than was scored in the entire group stage at Euro 2020 (12), and more than the entire 2022 World Cup (12 in 64 matches). It was also his first career goal for Denmark, and the longest of the tournament so far (nearly 34 yards).
  • Christian Eriksen made his 132nd appearance for Denmark, tying Simon Kjaer for the national team record.
