Minutes are 45 minutes

We are walking again. Will this be resolved in the next 45 minutes? Or extra time? Or fines?

No changes on either side.


That question

I thought Caspar Schmidt would put an end to it the next day.


Statistics

The UK leads with 60 per cent ownership. Both sides have two shots on target and one corner each.

No more yellow cards.

Like the score, don’t divide them too much in half.

England 1-1 Denmark


Half half time

All square in space. Tomcard scored a stunning free-kick to highlight Denmark, but under pressure from Sterling a Khajer’s own goal brought England level.

England 1-1 Denmark


Goal!

Sterling is bringing England back to the level! Or is it a personal goal?

This is a personal goal. Gajar was convicted of attempting to destroy Saga’s pass to Sterling.

Pickford’s record


Settles in Denmark

This was initially England. Denmark seemed to be leading and not ready.

But they later settled. A few shots, in a corner, forced Pickboard to make a few mistakes and their supporters had a lot to shout about in the crowd.


Twenty minutes are gone

The UK tops the possession list, but has yet to score.

Both sides have a shot towards the goal… but nothing scares the goal-keepers.


672 minutes

How long has it been since England reached a goal.


Increasing sterling

Raheem Sterling keeps Denmark’s defense honest in the first five minutes. He’s on the left, he’s in the middle.

No shots but plenty of runs and moves.

Denmark and Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel reminds everyone that Denmark “plays good football, entertains, scores, wins points, wins some goals”.

“We are in the semifinals on merit. More people in Denmark now follow football than ever before and watch this game. But I don’t think the team got wings from that incident – they have been at this level for a while and I’m optimistic tonight, “he told BBC Radio5.

Rock, Paper, Scissors


Benefit UK

But only from the head. The two sides have met 21 times, with England winning 12 matches.

In the semi-finals of a European Championship, these figures are low.


Are you coming for a long time?

Will England win in normal time? Denmark to get extra time thriller? Or will we see more penalties?

I’m ready for penalties, my goals and missed emojis shortcuts are ready.

It may take up to two hours to decide.

England makes a change: Saga Inn, Sancho out.

England: Pickport; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Phillips, Rice, Mt; Saga, Kane, Sterling.

Denmark unchanged XI.

Denmark: Flattery; Christensen, Ghazar, Westerkard; Larson, Hodgeburg, Delaney, Mahley; Tomcard, Tolberg, Brightwhite.


What is in Denmark?

Something they hadn’t managed since lifting the trophy in 1992 appeared in the final.

Despite playing for the simplest clubs scattered across Europe, Dance is not intimidated by the nicknames emblazoned on the stars of England.

“I feel we have the qualities to play against everyone. As a team, I would not say they are so great,” said Andreas Christensen of Denmark.

Captain Kane records

England captain Harry Kane needed a goal to balance Gary Linker’s record.

It took him a while to get to Euro 2020, but here he is.


Clean sheets of UK

‘Has football ever come home?’

England’s “football homecoming” anthem roared by fans at Wembley after the German game – did not sit well with everyone.

Denmark keeper Caspar Schmidt took a cheek swipe at the song, which was said to be a hit, and asked, “Was this ever home? I don’t know, have you ever won? ”
