England is hosting Denmark at Wembley Stadium in the Semifinals of the Euro Cup 2021. England is in great form, and they are on a 3-game winning streak. England also hasn’t conceded a goal in this tournament. Since that slow start, Denmark has greatly improved, and they are now on a 3-game winning streak during which they scored 10 goals while conceding only 2 goals.
England has finally looked well in their last game, and they have destroyed Ukraine in the quarterfinals. England was the better team in that match with 51% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a high 91% of the correct passes. England got ahead early, in the 4th minute, but it took them a while to score a second goal. With 3 more scored goals in the second half, England has won this match 0-4. The biggest news for England is that Kane has finally on the scoresheet, and he has now scored 3 goals for England so far. Sterling has also added 3 goals, while Shaw has 3 assists. Chilwell and Mount are still in quarantine and will most likely miss this game. England has a lot of depth and quality in this tournament and playing at home is a huge advantage for them, but I think this will be a tough game for them.
Denmark has been playing really well lately, especially in the attacking end where they scored 10 goals in 3 games. Dolberg is the leading goalscorer for Denmark with 3 goals, while Poulsen and Maehle added 2 goals each. Hojbjerg has added 3 assists. Eriksen is injured, but he might come and visit his teammates before this match. Denmark was playing against the Czech Republic in their last game, and they have had 45% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. Once again, the Danish offense was outstanding, and their defense was solid. With 2 scored goals in the first half and 1 conceded goal in the second half, Denmark has won this game 1-2. Denmark is very underestimated in this game, but I think they deserve much more credit. This Danish team looks like that team from 1992 when they won this competition, and it’s not that hard to believe they could do it again, they certainly have the quality to do it.
England hasn’t lost any of their last 11 games, and they haven’t lost any of their last 9 home games. Both teams are in good form, and England playing at home and still without a conceded goal is a huge advantage for them. Denmark is a good team with great players, and more importantly, Denmark is playing well. I think this is the game where England will concede their first goal.
