On Wednesday night, England take on Denmark at Wembley with the Three Lions knowing that they can reach a first major final since they won the World Cup in 1966, whilst Denmark are looking to reach their first final since winning the Euros in 1992.
England come into this match as the first team in the history of the competition to have not conceded a goal in their opening five matches of the tournament following their 4-0 demolition of Ukraine in the quarter-finals, as well as their 2-0 win against Germany in the round of 16. In the group stages, the Three Lions beat Croatia and the Czech Republic 1-0 via goals from Raheem Sterling, as well as drawing 0-0 with Scotland.
Denmark beat the Czech Republic last time out 2-1 thanks to goals from Thomas Delaney and Kasper Dolberg. Prior to this, the Danes scored four in back-to-back games against Wales and Russia, bouncing back from two narrow losses in Group B to Belgium 2-1 and Finland 1-0.
Harry Kane to Score First – 13/5
The player in focus for this tip is England’s Harry Kane who has managed to score three goals in his last two matches, following a brace against Ukraine last time out and the second goal in England’s 2-0 victory against Germany at Wembley.
In England’s eight qualifying matches for this tournament, the 27-year-old managed to score 12 goals in eight matches and the Three Lions captain also has 35 goals in 58 caps for Gareth Southgate’s side.
England to Win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 – 6/4
England to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 is priced at 6/4 which is actually fair when looking at results prior to their hammering of Ukraine, as before this the Three Lions had won seven of their last eight games via this score group with their 5-0 thumping of San Marino back in March’s World Cup qualifiers being the last time they had scored more than two goals prior to their quarter-final win.
As mentioned above, England are the first team in Euro history to have not conceded a goal in the opening five matches of the competition, the last time the Three Lions conceded a goal was in a 2-1 victory against Poland on 31st March as Brighton’s Jakub Moder scored an equaliser for the Poles, before Harry Maguire scored an 85th minute winner, meaning England haven’t conceded a goal in their last 662 minutes of international football.
