Italy have already booked a spot at Wembley for the European Championships 2020 Final, and today England will attempt to join them, with Denmark looking to crash Sunday’s party.
The Three Lions have gotten better as the tournament has progressed, and though manager Gareth Southgate has continued his safety-first approach, his side has strung together some decent attacking football mostly in the second halves of games.
Denmark have done remarkably well to recover from the loss of their talisman Christian Eriksen and losing their first game against Finland to get here. The team spirit that adversity has forged has been quite something to watch, and the Danes are the neutral’s choice to make it not just to the Final but to win the tournament for the second time, much like they did in the 1992 edition of the competition surprising everyone.
Jordan Pickford has continued his good run of form to end the season and keeps his place in the starting XI having picked up five clean sheets in a row and the Golden Glove award for the tournament. Dominic Calvert-Lewin was in the squad in the quarter-finals win against Ukraine, coming on late for a few minutes with the result already settled but has been dropped again today.

The two sides last met in 2013 with the game ending in a 0-0 draw in Kiev. England have won four and drawn two of their last seven meetings. The only time the pair have played in a major tournament was in Euro 2012 with Wayne Rooney scoring the winner in their group stages clash. Don’t expect too many goals today, with only four being scored in total in their last four duels.
