Both teams are in good playing shape and will do their best to reach the final. To make the forecast for the match England - Denmark as accurate as possible, consider the statistics of the teams' performance at the Euro.
England form and results
Wards of Gareth Southgate have not suffered a single defeat at the Euro, and the goalkeeper of the “three lions” has never taken the ball out of his own net. In total, the British played 5 matches at Euro, in which they tied only once.
In the group stage, England defeated Croatia (1-0, scored by Raheem Sterling), then there was a goalless draw with Scotland and a minimal victory over the Czech Republic (1-0, scored by Raheem Sterling). In the Euro ⅛ final, England played Germany, and that meeting ended 2-0 in favor of Southgate's wards - goals were scored by Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane. In the quarter-finals of the European Championship, the England team devastatingly defeated the Ukrainian team - Harry Kane scored twice on a goal scored by Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire.
Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling are England's main driving force in the European forum. Both players scored 3 goals each and will surely try to improve their statistics and beat the competition in the fight for the title of top scorer.
Denmark form and results
For the Danish national team, this European Championship began terribly: the captain and team leader Christian Eriksen lost consciousness in the first round of the group stage (later it became known that the player had experienced clinical death on the field), and the Danes themselves suffered two defeats in two starting rounds.
At the group stage, the Danish national team lost to Finland (0:1) and in a bitter struggle lost to Belgium (1:2 goal in the Danes was scored by Yussuf Poulsen). However, the third round for the Scandinavians turned out to be a turning point in the Euro - Kasper Yulmann's wards defeated the Russian team (4: 1, Joakim Male, Andreas Christensen, Yussuf Poulsen, Mikkel Damsgaard scored goals as part of Yulmann's wards), which guaranteed themselves participation in the playoffs of the European forum . In the ⅛ finals of the Euro, the Danish team did not leave a stone unturned from the defense of Wales (4:0, Kasper Dolberg scored a double, Joakim Male and Martin Braithwaite scored a goal each), and in the ¼ finals, the Danes outplayed the Czech national team in a bitter struggle (2:1 in the The Danes were scored by Thomas Delaney and Kasper Dolberg).
Kasper Dolberg is Denmark's top scorer. Forward of the French "Nice" scored three goals against the opponents. In second place Joakim Male and Yussuf Poulsen scored two goals each.
Match England - Denmark: statistics of personal meetings
The national teams of England and Denmark met in the Euro draw on June 11, 1992, in the group stage - that meeting ended with a score of 0:0. The next face-to-face meeting of the teams took place on June 15, 2002 in the ⅛ finals of the World Cup - then the British confidently beat their opponent with a score of 3: 0 (goals were scored by Rio Ferdinand, Michael Owen and Emile Hesky). The two previous matches between England and Denmark took place as part of the UEFA Nations League draw - on September 9, 2020, the teams played a draw (0: 0), and on October 14, 2020, the Danish team beat the England team with a score of 1: 0 (he scored a goal at his own expense Christian Eriksen).
Prediction for the match England - Denmark: how will the meeting end?
The England team prefers pragmatic football, which affects the total number of goals scored - Southgate's wards scored only 2 goals in the group stage. In the playoffs, the British gave, perhaps, their best match in the duel with the German national team - with the proper level of resistance, the "lions" confidently defeated Lev's wards. Well, the Ukrainian national team, which sensationally reached the ¼ finals of the Euro, did not put up proper resistance to the founders of football.
The Danish national team is the opening team of the current Euro. The loss in the first two rounds, the incident with Erickson, it seems, not only did not break the Danes, but also tempered them. Devastating victories over Russia in the group and Wales in the ⅛ finals, a labor victory over the Czech Republic - the result of the coaching work of Kasper Julmann. The Danish national team demonstrates game and physical readiness, due to which it may well aim to participate in the final.
Forecast England - Denmark : The match will be held in a bitter struggle. Both teams will lead the game “to the first goal” - in favor of the England team is a more stellar line-up and the home field factor, in favor of the Danes - a staged game in defense and a good selection of names in attack. However, it is Southgate's wards that look like the main contenders for reaching the Euro 2020 final.
