The It’s Coming Home chants are getting louder now as England seek their first-ever European Championship title. However, Denmark have shown they can come back from even the most dramatic of setbacks and this should make for a tensed ninety at the spiritual home of football.
European Championship 2020
Venue: Wembley Stadium
Gareth Southgate moved away from a back five against Ukraine, favouring a back four against a side they expected to sit deep, and it worked perfectly. England controlled the tempo of the game in the 4-0 hammering of Ukraine, and looked domineering all through.
The Three Lions could have scored a few more, but rather looked intent on saving their energy for the semifinals. Thus, they are now looking for a spot in what would be their first ever Euros showpiece appearance, and having home advantage only bodes well for them.
Denmark deservedly came away with a 2-1 victory over Czech Republic, and are now into their first semi-final appearance since winning it in 1992.
The Danes have shown a lot of character and have gone from strength to strength in this tournament since the Christian Eriksen incident. Recall they became the first team to win this competition without actually qualifying for the tournament and not being hosts in 1992; now they’re seeking to set another record by becoming the first side to win it after losing their first two games.
England have no new injuries or suspensions issues, though they are still without Dean Henderson.
Christian Eriksen is still unavailable for selection following his heart problems.

England have now kept a clean sheet in seven consecutive games for the first time ever.
Denmark are unbeaten in first halves across their last 17 outings (HT: W11, D6).
England are in excellent form at Euro 2020 and have now started scoring goals to add to their solid defence.
They have won five of their last six matches in all competitions, keeping clean sheets in all six matches. Denmark started the Euros with back-to-back defeats against Finland and Belgium and many are surprised to seen the Danes at this latter stage of the competition. England look very much the better side however and should have enough to get them through to the final. Bet on England to win at 7/10 odds.
