England are back at Wembley on Wednesday night as they face Denmark with a place in the Euro 2020 final against Italy on the line. A thrashing of Ukraine in Rome saw the Three Lions make the last four at the tournament, as they did at the World Cup three years ago and last at Euros in 1996. Denmark have overcome near-tragedy following Christian Eriksen’s on-pitch collapse to sail into the semi-finals with little trouble. Can they stun Wembley on Wednesday and continue the fairytale?

They remain the only side yet to concede (W4, D1), while they’ve now gone seven matches overall without conceding a goal for the first time ever. That said,
Twenty-five years after England’s last European Championship semi-final, which saw them infamously lose on penalties at Wembley, the ‘Three Lions’ are here again after thumping Ukraine 4-0 in the last round. Intriguingly, that was their first win by 3+ goals in a major tournament knockout match since 2002, when England beat Denmark 3-0 in their last competitive H2H win. England have conceded an average of one first-half goal per match across their last four games vs sides ranked inside FIFA’s top ten (W1, D1, L2).

Euro 2020, Semi Final
Date: Wednesday, 7 July 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
Jubilant scenes back home – coupled with endless renditions of Baddiel and Skinner – both demonstrated the pride of England supporters for their team as well as a much-needed release following the events of the last 18 months. However, the Three Lions’ job is far from over, and Southgate will know that better than anyone.
