Jordan Henderson insists England cannot get carried away after their victory over Ukraine and must quickly turn their attention to a "really tough" encounter with Denmark.

The Three Lions' 4-0 win on Saturday night sets up a semi-final clash with Denmark, who edged out Czech Republic 2-1 earlier that evening.

Gareth Southgate's side return from Stadio Olimpico to Wembley for the fixture, resuming the home advantage they enjoyed throughout the group and last-16 stages of Euro 2020.

But Denmark cannot be underestimated after scoring 10 goals in their last three games, and vice-captain Henderson stressed the need for the England squad to "recover well" ahead of their meeting.

Henderson is not letting the England squad get carried away ahead of the clash with Denmark

"It was a very good night," Henderson – who came off the bench in the second half – told BBC Sport . "We’re so pleased with the performance level. Great start with the early goal and we grew on from there.

"Defended really well as a team, scored some great goals, created some great chances, we’ve got to be really pleased with the overall performance but we can’t dwell on it too long.

"We’ve got another big game coming up on Wednesday so we need to recover well, prepare for that one and give absolutely everything on Wednesday."

The Liverpool skipper added: "We’ve always felt we’re continuing to grow and improve as a team and that’s important.

"But I feel as though we’re ready now to take the next step but it’ll be a really tough test against Denmark. They’re a really good side, we played against them not so long ago and we’ve seen a lot of the games.

"They’re a tough side so we need to be at our very best if we’re going to progress to the final but hopefully we can do that and get a good result."

Meanwhile, Henderson scored his first goal for his country against Ukraine, getting on the end of Mason Mount's corner to extend England's lead to four goals in the 63rd minute.

It has taken 62 caps for him to open his Three Lions account, and the 31-year-old said: "It’s about time to be honest!

"It’s been a long time coming I suppose. I have felt one coming but thankfully I’ve managed to get on the scoresheet but overall I’m delighted for the lads because they deserve it.

"The performance they put in tonight was fantastic and it will give us good momentum going into the next game."

Henderson added: "I always felt it [the goal] would come eventually but I always try to contribute the best I can on the pitch and I never really think about needing to score goals.

“There’s a lot of other players to do that but I need to concentrate on my job on the pitch, what I need to do and what the coaching staff and the players need me to do."
