Match Preview

Both Denmark and England approach their Group C match with a sense of caution after underwhelming performances in their opening games. England managed to secure a 1-0 victory over Serbia, maintaining a clean sheet, but their overall display was far from convincing. Similarly, Denmark's initial positive momentum against Slovenia dissipated, resulting in a disappointing loss after conceding a crucial goal. The only key difference was that Serbia failed to capitalize on their big chance, while Slovenia did not.

Historically, matches between these two teams have been tightly contested. Their encounter three years ago in the semi-finals of this competition at Wembley was decided by a narrow margin, with England winning through an extra-time rebound from a saved penalty kick. Denmark, however, has a history of surprising England, such as the 1983 match where an Allan Simonsen penalty at Wembley eliminated England from Euro ‘84.

Denmark's current form doesn't suggest they are on the verge of greatness. In their opening match, despite Christian Eriksen’s goal, they couldn't maintain their lead, and Rasmus Højlund's performance was more flashy than effective. He needs to become a more consistent goal source for Denmark to succeed.

For England, Jude Bellingham is the focal point of their aspirations. His performance against Serbia showed potential, and there is anticipation for better contributions from Harry Kane. England's attacking depth is strong, even with Phil Foden's fit within the team still being debated. The midfield needs restructuring to provide better service to Kane, which could significantly enhance their overall play. However, England's defense remains a concern.

While England seems to have a clearer path to improvement, Denmark’s unpredictable nature and historical capacity to upset suggest that this match could still be very close.
