What have the managers said?

England manager Gareth Southgate: “The prize is one that we’ve never experienced.

“Denmark, of course, have won a Euros, so they’ve got a better record than us and I think people forget that in our country sometimes.

“We’ve never been to a final, so it’s a great opportunity for our players to make some more history.

“They’re a very good team. We played them twice in the autumn and when we were preparing for that, we knew their record, we knew how difficult they’d been to beat, we knew that they’ve got some very good players – and I think they’re better now than they were then.”

Denmark head coach Kasper Hjulmand: “We are in a phase now with the national team that we are moving away from being the underdog all the time.

“We try to take the initiative regardless of who our opponents are. We try to be proactive and score goals.

“I don’t like the underdog mentality. Our mindset is not like an underdog.

“We are out to create chances and attack. We have the mentality that we can go out and beat whoever we are playing.”

  • This will be the third meeting between England and Denmark in a major tournament. England won 3-0 in the second round of the 2002 World Cup, after a goalless draw in the group stages of EURO 1992 – a competition that Denmark went on to win.
  • All seven meetings between England and Denmark at Wembley Stadium have finished 1-0, with England winning five to Denmark’s two.
