England vs Denmark predictions ahead of this Euro 2020 semi-final. Can England book their place in the final?
Prediction: England to Win
*England have won four of their five games at Euro 2020
*The Three Lions haven’t conceded a goal at this tournament
*Home advantage can take England through
All four sides who made the Euro 2020 final enjoyed home advantage for all three games in the group stage. However, England have the added bonus of playing three of their four potential knockout games at Wembley. They will have 60,000 fans cheering them on this week, evening out the fact that Denmark are clearly the neutral’s favourite.
*Back to basics for England
England fans had a perfect Saturday night as England scored early against Ukraine and they looked good for a win after Harry Kane’s opener. However, this Denmark side are a much sterner test for Southgate’s men.
Denmark have lost twice at this tournament and both of those defeats have been by a single goal.
We’re backing England to claim a 2-0 win, continuing their excellent defensive record having kept nine clean sheets in their last 10 matches.
*Kane in flying form
Kane has been fantastic for the Three Lions across the last game and a bit. He improved late on against Germany and he blew away Ukraine with two goals. We know that the Tottenham man is a player who enjoys a purple patch and he’s likely to build on this fine record.
Kane is also one to push for individual honours, having won the 2018 World Cup golden boot. He’s two shy of the top of the scoring charts and he’s the most likely player left who can bridge that gap. Kane has scored 37 times for England in 59 appearances and with that track record and his current form he’s our anytime goalscorer prediction.
England eliminated Ukraine in the quarterfinals, beating the rivals with 4-0. So that is yet another clean sheet for Gareth Southgate‘s boys. They are by far the best defense in the entire tournament, without a single goal conceded.
They would keep the net intact for the seventh straight match, the ninth in the past 11 games. But that is Southgate’s strategy, defense first, and after that counter-attacks.
One by one, the Croats, Scots, Czechs, Germans and at last Ukrainians couldn’t beat Pickford, who was masterful with his teammates in the backline. In the meantime, Harry Kane woke up, scoring three goals during the knockout stage, showing his class when needed the most. He tied with Raheem Sterling, who also has three goals each.
Denmark solved the Czech Republic without too many problems, 2-1, and even though the Czechs had the initiative in the second half, the Danes would rebuff their attacks without any problems. Their mentality in those stressful situations is extremely resistant, which is one of the biggest reasons for entering the top four
Kjaer and the boys have four straight matches with over 2.5 goals, and three of them during that span ended with both teams netting, which wasn’t that frequent before the start of EURO 2020.

Harry Kane, England forward: "It's about peaking at the right time. A fantastic night; we keep going game after game. We were favourites to win this game, a lot of pressure and expectation and to perform as we did was top-drawer. Another clean sheet and four goals: it was a perfect night for us."
Harry Maguire, England defender: "It's a great feeling – back-to-back semi-finals at a major tournament is a great achievement. I don't want to be a party pooper but we don't stop here. We've got another big game coming up and we want to go further this time."

England control pace of game, Kane taken off
A flurry of changes made by England with 25 minutes left on the clock. Ukraine now looking to maintain their shape more than looking to attack themselves. Englan look like a far superior unit, controlling the pace of the game completely. England will be reaching the semifinal without having conceded a single goal in the tournament. Ken taken off in the 73rd minute. No hat-trick for him then.
Henderson scores, England lead by 4 goals
Henderson comes on for Declan Rice as England look to control the pace of the game. Kane brings the game alive with a volleyed shot that is parried away. And from the resulting corner, Henderson scores.
Harry Kane scores again

|A comfortable, 4-0 win. Kane scoring twice. No injuries and no suspensions. Perfect.|
England 3-0 Ukraine
England score again
Harry Maguire scores as the 2nd half starts! Ukraine concede a free kick. Luke Shaw delivers a set piece that England make the most of. Two minutes into the half and England now lead 2-0.
Half Time: England 1-0 Ukraine
Sterling creates a chance, which is squandered by Sancho, who is saved by the fact that he would have been off side anyway. Ukraine mount a series of attacks as the half time whistle looms. England push back, having to do a bit more defensive work. Zinchenko carves a ball through the English backline, but the Ukraine forward line cannot do justice to it. After 3 minutes of added time, the first half whistle blows.
'39 - Declan Rice has a shot on goal
Declan Rice has a long range crack at the keeper in the 33rd minute, which is the best attack England have mounted since the goal. Ukraine mount another attack with a fluid move down the left flank, but England manage to get their legs between the shot and the goal.
'30 - Chances few and far in between
The highly vaunted Sancho has done little other than be caught off side so far. Sterling finds some space on the left and decides to smash a shot into the legs of Ukraine's defenders. Chances few and hard to come by in this match so far.
4' - Harry Kane scores
England take the lead in the 4th minute. Ukraine, who haven't gotten a real touch of the ball so far, have conceded. A ball is squeezed through into the box, and Harry Kane is the first to it.England 1-0 Ukraine
