England are one game away from the Euro 2020 final so it’s fair to say there’s a good chance it might actually be coming home.

All that stands in the way of the Three Lions and a place in Sunday’s showpiece is the talented and organised Denmark team.

The Danes were considered dark horses by many before a ball had been kicked and have won plenty of admirers for their response after Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest in their opener against Finland.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

England, however, were installed as the favourites to win Euro 2020 by Paddy’s top traders after their impressive dismantling of Ukraine at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

It’s back to Wembley for the semi-final but Gareth Southgate’s side are winless in their last two meetings with Denmark so a tense evening lies in wait.

England v Denmark kick off time

England’s Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark is scheduled to get underway at 20:00 BST on Wednesday July 7.

If the scores are level after 90 minutes then the tie will go to 30 minutes of extra-time and penalties if required.

England v Denmark team news

Bukayo Saka missed the Ukraine win after picking up a knock in training but is fully fit for Denmark’s visit to Wembley.

Jadon Sancho replaced Saka in the XI for the quarter-final romp but Gareth Southgate has yet to name an unchanged team at Euro 2020 and the Arsenal ace is expected to return in the only alteration to the team that started in Rome.

Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand is set to stick with the XI that saw off the Czech Republic in the quarter-finals.

Kasper Schmeichel, Andreas Christensen, Yannick Vestegaard and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg are familiar names to Premier League watchers while Martin Braithwaite, Kasper Dolberg and Mikkel Damsgaard should all keep their attacking places ahead of Yussuf Poulsen and Andreas Cornelius.

England v Denmark tips

Paddy Power footie trader Emmet O’Keeffe believes it’s worth backing Denmark to reach the final due to the price on offer.

“It might sound a bit much but if you look at the tournament, Denmark have dominated teams,” Emmet told us.

“They’re the second-highest scoring team in the tournament, they’ve had the second-most shots on target of any team and none of their games have gone to extra time. They haven’t needed it.

“I think the market is underwriting Denmark a bit. I can see England coming through this game but it’ll be close. Denmark to Qualify seems too big of a price not to back.”

England v Denmark prediction

Former England international Phil Thompson has picked out his best bets and is backing the Three Lions to roar their way into the final.

“All round, this England team looks strong. There is something special about Denmark but England have that great core and they should come through this one. I fancy England to Win to Nil. I’m going for 2-0 with Harry Kane to Score First,” Thommo told Paddy Power News.

“He’s worth backing to score after he fired home a couple against Ukraine. England haven’t had a penalty yet either and they are probably due one. You can be assured in knowing that if they get one, Kane is stepping up!”
