England and Denmark will lock horns in the final EURO 2020 semi-finals match of the tournament, which will decide which of the two teams will join Italy in the grand finals. Denmark won against England the last time they met, albeit that was almost a year ago, and the Thee Lions seem better prepared to finally “bring it home”.
England vs Denmark
When: Wednesday, July 7 – 20:00 GMT
Where: Wembley Stadium, London, England
Weather: Partly cloudy, 18°C
Referee: Danny Makkelie (NED)
The match will be played at the Wembley Stadium, where most of the fans in the stands will be rooting for England. Sure, Denmark are going to have a few thousand supporters on their side as well, but they probably aren’t going to be heard much.
Nevertheless, even without fan support, the Danes look impossible to intimidate. If there’s a team that is determined to win the title and complete one of the biggest upsets in EURO history, it’s Denmark, who have gone from experiencing a living nightmare to living the dream.
Despite their undeniable motivation to deliver, the Danes just don’t look as strong as England.
England Have Been #1 EURO 2020 Favourites Since France Got Knocked Out
Before the start of the tournament, France were the team to beat, with England in second. However, with France out of the tournament, the Three Lions are now the main betting favourites to hoist the trophy.
Some of it has to do with the fact that both the semi-finals and the finals are taking place at Wembley. However, it’s also the improvement the English squad have been showing this tournament, after years of looking mediocre at most.
England’s biggest weakness was their midfield, but the players Gareth Southgate picked up for EURO 2020 have been doing a phenomenal job. West Ham’s Declan Rice and Leeds United’s Kalvin Philips are the key men in the position.
What’s more England also look really sharp in the attack, especially with Harry Kane, who started scoring goals. He hasn’t scored a single goal in the group stage but now enters the semi-finals with three goals to his name.
He is tied with Raheem Sterling, who’s been probably England’s best player in the tournament. Then, there’s also England’s defence that hasn’t leaked a single goal at the tournament yet.
Denmark Rising From the Ashes
The tournament started in a horrible way for Denmark, with Cristian Eriksen going into a cardiac arrest during the Dynamite’s clash with Finland. The Danes ended up losing that game, as well as their second game of the tournament (vs Belgium).
However, with good news coming from the hospital and players finally being able to focus on their games, Denmark turned a new leaf and started performing exceptionally well.
Motivated to bring joy to their ill teammate, the Danes have been playing fantastic football, which got them to the semis. Still, despite getting only one step away from the Final, Denmark just don’t seem to have the quality to win the trophy.
The fact is that they haven’t faced a strong opponent as England yet. In the quarterfinal, they beat the Czech Republic, which is a solid result; however, the Danes need to consider themselves lucky to win that day, as they were hardly the better team of the two, being forced to defend themselves for most of the second half.
England vs Denmark Betting Picks
Denmark are a physically strong and very motivated team, but their technical ability isn’t as good as England’s. Plus, the Three Lions are playing home, which should give them enough boost to grab a win inside the 90 minutes and reach their first international finals since 1996.
