Not having beaten England in a European Cup match since 1983, Denmark hopes to rewrite history in this crucial encounter. Goals will be scarce against the strong English defense, but Rasmus Hojlund's electrifying pace could prove decisive. He, along with Jonas Wind (11 goals, 7 assists for Wolfsburg) and the veteran Christian Eriksen, will spearhead Denmark's attack.

Meanwhile, after years of yearning for a major international trophy, this could be England's golden opportunity. They possess one of the most complete squads in recent memory, boasting an attacking duo of Real Madrid's Jude Bellingham and Manchester City's Phil Foden.  England, seeking to exorcise the demons of their 2022 World Cup loss to France, is determined to start strong and capitalize on their recent positive results against Denmark (3 wins since 1988). 

Denmark Record

Heading into their second group stage match, Denmark secured a hard-fought draw after a grueling 90+ minutes of play. The 1-1 tie against a relatively new but rapidly growing team in Slovenia showed that the Danes didn't shy away from the challenge and extended their unbeaten streak to five matches. Building on their strong performance in the 2022 World Cup, Denmark's current form and momentum could prove vital in defeating higher-ranked teams.

England Record

England's form has been inconsistent in their last five matches. They suffered a surprising 1-0 defeat to Iceland, followed by a 1-1 draw with North Macedonia. They also lost to another major footballing nation in Brazil. However, they will be looking to bounce back after securing a narrow 1-0 victory against Serbia in their opening group stage match.  Determined to take control of the group, England will need to show grit and determination to overcome their recent struggles.

Denmark Preview

Denmark is riding a hot streak, consistently finding innovative ways to close out games. Leading the charge is the young phenomenon, 21-year-old Rasmus Hojlund. He's already notched 7 goals for Denmark in just 8 European Qualifier matches and has earned 15 international caps. Christian Eriksen's story is nothing short of remarkable.  After suffering a cardiac arrest on the field, he's battled back to near his previous form, contributing a goal and 8 assists in the 2022-23 season. His experience (131 caps, 42 goals) will be invaluable for this young squad.

Further bolstering the attack is Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, a constant starter for Tottenham Hotspur. He brings a scoring touch with 10 goals in 78 appearances for Denmark. Jonas Wind (8 goals, 27 caps) and Morten Hjulmand (3 goals, 2 assists for Sporting CP) are exciting young prospects Denmark hopes to develop throughout the European Cup. Their presence adds depth to this already potent offense. 

Defensively, Denmark relies on the experience of Simon Kjaer. He continues to be a leader on the backline, mirroring his role at A.C. Milan, one of Europe's top defensive units. Kjaer's ability to read the game and anticipate threats is crucial. Behind him stands Kasper Schmeichel, a key figure in Leicester City's surprise Premier League title win. His experience and shot-stopping abilities provide a reliable safety net for the Danish defense.

Denmark Probable Starting XI: Kasper Schmeichel (Goalkeeper), Simon Kjaer, Andreas Christensen, Joachim Anderson, Alexander Bah, Victor Kristiansen (Defenders); Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Morten Hjulmand, Christian Eriksen (Midfielders); Rasmus Hojlund, Jonas Wind (Forwards)

England Preview

England's squad isn't just brimming with experience, but their key players are entering this tournament in the form of their lives. Leading the charge is the 20-year-old phenomenon, Jude Bellingham. He's been compared to the legendary Zinedine Zidane by many, and his performances back up the hype. With a staggering 19 goals and 6 assists for Real Madrid in La Liga, and an additional 4 goals and 5 assists in the Champions League, Bellingham will be a constant threat, drawing pressure and creating opportunities for other young stars like Phil Foden and Harry Kane.

Foden himself is a force to be reckoned with, contributing 19 goals and 8 assists for Bayern Munich this season. Alongside him is the ever-reliable Harry Kane, who has netted an impressive 36 goals for the same club. This dynamic duo forms one of the most fearsome attacking partnerships in world football. While Denmark's goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, has exceptional reflexes, the sheer skill and variety of England's attack makes it a near-impossible task for any keeper to maintain a clean sheet against them. 

Adding further depth to the attack is Bukayo Saka. With 16 goals and 9 assists for Arsenal at the club level, and an impressive 11 goals in 34 international appearances, Saka is another potent threat. His connection with Trent Alexander-Arnold, renowned for his attacking prowess from the right-back position (3 goals and 4 assists for Liverpool this season), promises to be a nightmare for opposing defenses. England's combination of prolific goal scorers and a strong, creative midfield makes them a strong favorite to dominate the scoreboard in this match. 

England Probable Starting XI: Jordan Pickford(Goalkeeper); Kyle Walker, John Stones, Marc Guehi, Joe Gomez (Defenders); Declan Rice, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jude Bellingham (Midfielders); Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane (Forwards)

England heads into this match on the back of a narrow 1-0 victory over Serbia, secured by Jude Bellingham's early goal. Bellingham's growing international presence alongside England's all-time top scorer, Harry Kane, will be a challenge for Denmark's defense to handle. 

England, boasting a strong backline led by Kyle Walker, will aim to contain the pace of Rasmus Hojlund, who is making his European Championship debut. With manager Gareth Southgate determined to avoid past disappointments, England will be highly motivated and focused on securing a win. While Denmark will undoubtedly come to compete, England appears to hold the upper hand on paper.
