England will be looking to book their place in the final of Euro 2020 by beating Denmark on Wednesday.
The Three Lions will, of course, return to Wembley Stadium for their semi-final against the Danes, with the big game taking place 24 hours after the first semi-final between Italy and Spain.
Gareth Southgate’s players produced their best performance of the tournament so far against Ukraine on Saturday. Harry Kane scored twice as the Three Lions won 4-0 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. However, Southgate will be acutely aware that Denmark are likely to be much tougher opposition for his players. Although England’s 2-0 win against Germany in the Round of 16 proved that the Three Lions have what it takes to perform against the very best, they have historically struggled in the latter stages of major tournaments.

The Danes beat the Czech Republic 2-1 at the Olympic Stadium in Baku on Saturday. After the game, Kasper Hjulmand said he felt his squad will have Christian Eriksen in their thoughts as they look to continue their remarkable run against England.
