Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 4-0 win over Ukraine, England will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Denmark in the EURO 2020 semis. The Three Lions have been impressive at the back, with the team eyeing their sixth consecutive clean sheet at the showpiece tournament. A man to keep an eye on in Gareth Southgate’s team will be Harry Kane, who scored a brace in the quarter-final clash. Bukayo Saka should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Danes, on the other hand, continue to impress at the 2020 European Championship finals. Kasper Hjumland’s men set up a meeting with England by beating Czech Republic in Baku, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Wednesday’s clash against England, who look unstoppable at the moment. Denmark ace Christian Eriksen remains on the sidelines with a heart problem.
Highlighted Player (Harry Kane):
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year.
The highly rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Tottenham Hotspur mount a serious title challenge for the first time in club’s recent history and he made seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.
Highlighted Team (Denmark):
The Denmark national team participated at the World Cup finals on four occasions and they recorded their best result at the 1998 tournament. The Danes made it to the quarter-finals of the 1998 World Cup in France, but Brazil proved to be a big catch for the Nordic side. De Rod-Hvide did remarkably well to win the 1992 European Championship, but they were more than fortunate to qualify for the Euro 1992 finals.
Denmark finished their qualifying campaign in second place in the group, but thanks to Yugoslavia’s exclusion from the competition, the team booked their place at the Euro 1992 finals. Denmark impressed at the tournament in Sweden, with the team outplaying Germany in the title game (2-0).
Brothers Michael and Bryan Laudrup and goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel are regarded as Denmark’s most notable players. It has to be noted that Morten Olsen was in charge of the Danish national team from 2000 to 2015. The Danes play their home games at Telia Parken and the capacity of the venue is 38,065 (all-seater).
