Kick-off: 2000, 07/07/2021
England have looked a formidable force during the Euro 2020 knockout stages and are fancied to end Denmark’s brave bid for glory.
The Danes have been inspired by Christian Eriksen’s absence and can take heart from an October Nations League win at Wembley.
Everything suggests they will give it a go on Wednesday night, but the rampant Three Lions are hard to oppose on current form.
We’re taking 19/10 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our first England vs Denmark prediction.
A Look At England’s Betting Odds
England were merely efficient in topping the Group D table but have stepped up to a new level in their last couple of contests.
Buoyed by a convincing 2-0 victory over old rivals Germany, the Three Lions simply cruised to a 4-0 success versus Ukraine in Rome.
Captain Harry Kane gave his side a dream start when latching onto Raheem Sterling’s pass to poke the ball past Heorhiy Bushchan with just four minutes gone.
Headers from Harry Maguire (who we tipped to score at 17/2) and Kane early on in the second half put the result beyond doubt and Jordan Henderson nodded in his first international goal.
“We don’t get carried away,” commented Kane. “We have a great unit from front to back and it’s a vital part of winning games and tournaments.
“We have more experience, we have been playing for our clubs in big games, a lot of us in the biggest of games – Champions League finals and Premier League title races.
“We are looking confident out there. We have our supporters now as well, we are going to have 60,000 in the stadium and we want to do them proud.”
Kane’s return to form has come at just the right time and he almost had a hat-trick when an instinctive volley from the edge of the box tested Bushchan.
Looking at the England vs Denmark odds, the Tottenham striker is 3/1 to outscore the Danes on his own.
A Look At Denmark’s Betting Odds
Denmark famously lifted this trophy back in 1992 when only receiving a late entry and their exploits this time have again been worthy of a place in footballing folklore.
Eriksen’s near-death experience in an opening loss to Finland cost them their most talented individual and a narrow defeat by Belgium seemed to dash any hopes of a recovery.
However, the Danes sneaked through by handing Russia a 4-1 drubbing and then powered to a 4-0 triumph over Wales at the last-16 stage.
First-half goals from Thomas Delaney and Kasper Dolberg put them in control versus the Czech Republic, who could only halve the deficit through Patrik Schick.
That result gave us a trio of successful selections in our match preview, including a 17/2 correct score pay-out!
Head coach Kasper Hjulmand declared: “I am still thinking of Christian every single day. He should have been here.
“We are happy that he survived, we carry him all the way to this match and all the way to Wembley. I think about him all of the time.
“We all understood maybe that the values of football came through – and maybe we are a symbol of it. I could not be more happy than that.”
There will be no room for sentiment on Wednesday night, though, and England seem just too powerful in most departments at present.
Let’s finish off our England vs Denmark betting tips by taking 15/4 for the Three Lions to prevail by any two-goal margin.
Ukraine 0-4 ENGLAND – Kane (2), Maguire, Henderson
Czech Republic 1-2 DENMARK – Delaney, Dolberg
