Despite playing for more modest clubs scattered throughout Europe, the Danes are not intimidated by England’s star-studded lineup of household names.

“I feel like we have the qualities to play against everyone. As a team, I would not say they are that much better,” Denmark’s Andreas Christensen said.

Took him a while to get going at Euro 2020 but here he is.


England’s clean sheets

It’s remarkable that England have not conceded a single goal in the tournament so far – that’s five clean sheets.

They started off not scoring too many either – two goals in the three group matches. But scored six in the two knockouts, including a 2-0 win over Germany… much to the dismay of the ‘psychic’ elephant who predicted a German win!

‘Has football ever come home?’

England’s “Football’s coming home” anthem – roared by fans at Wembley after the Germany game – does not sit well with everyone.

Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel took a cheeky swipe at the supposedly triumphalist song, saying: “Has it ever been home? I don’t know, have you ever won it?”


Preview

Denmark will have to do what no team has done against England at the Euro 2020 to reach the tournament final: score a goal.

The Danes recovered from two losses in their opening games of the tournament and will take on England in the second semi-final at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.

England, meanwhile, have not lost a match or conceded a goal so far at Euro 2020 and will be playing at their national football stadium.
