England vs Denmark predictions
Sam Wallace, Daily Telegraph chief football writer – England 2 Denmark 0
Another big team selection for Southgate – is this Grealish’s moment? Or Saka? Or Foden? At home England will want to dominate the early stages and use the power of the Wembley crowd. At the back they are in a run of form like no other.
Glenn Hoddle, former England manager – England 2 Denmark 1
It will not be easy as Denmark are on the crest of a wave, but I think the fact we are at Wembley nullifies that. If this was in Copenhagen, I would be worried because the atmosphere would be incredible. But that is not going to be the case. They are coming to our backyard.
Harry Redknapp, former Tottenham manager – England 2 Denmark 1
Mount and Kane.
Jamie Carragher, Telegraph Sport columnist – England 2 Denmark 1
I think it will be tight and Denmark have the firepower to get on the scoresheet but with Kane looking sharp again and his combination with Sterling looking fruitful it’ll get England over the line.

ENGLAND-DENMARK | Team News, Where To Watch
Southgate has never been one to stick with the same winning formula throughout the tournament, but heavy chopping and changing is unlikely to occur this time around as the England coach prepares to field a highly effective 4-2-3-1 once more.
Jadon Sancho caught the eye during his first start against Ukraine, but Bukayo Saka is expected to shake off a knock in time for this fixture and may be preferred on the right given his attacking and defensive capabilities.
Maguire, Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips all managed to avoid a booking which would have ruled them out of this game against Ukraine, meaning that Henderson may be kept waiting for a start despite marking his 62nd cap with a first-ever England goal in the quarter-final.
Aside from the recovering Eriksen, Denmark are also well-stocked for the semi-final, although Yussuf Poulsen was only fit enough to make an appearance from the bench against the Czechs and will struggle to displace the in-form Dolberg.
Daniel Wass should be fit enough to compete for a start on the right, but Jens Stryger Larsen provided the assist for Delaney’s opener in the quarters and will not be prepared to cede his place at Wembley.
Captain Simon Kjaer has overcome his own fitness concerns and is ready to lead his side out in the English capital, and it would not be a surprise to see Hjulmand name an unchanged XI for Wednesday’s encounter. – (SportsMole)
ENGLAND – DENMARK AT THE EUROS
England are unbeaten at Euro 2020 and are the only side yet to concede a goal at the tournament in what has been a historic run. The only ‘bad performance’ was the underwhelming 0-0 draw with Scotland. Gareth Southgate’s team have had tight but professsional wins against Coratia and the Czechs, before ahistoric win against Germany in the last 16. In the quarter-finals England smashed Ukraine in Rome – and now Denmark is the only thing in their way to the final.
Denmark have had an inspiring run, especially considering Chirstian Eriksen’s collapsed on the field during their tournament-opening defeat. Kasper Hjulmand’s side have remained organised since then, they had a narrow defeat by the world’s number one ranked side Belgium in their second game, they then thrashed Russia and then beat Wales in the last 16. They then faced a tough Czech Republic, beating them to face England in the semi-final match at Wembley tonight.
