England vs Denmark prediction
Denmark have impressed throughout Euro 2020, particularly given the events of their first game where Christian Eriksen collapsed. England are growing increasingly strong in the tournament and are still yet to concede a goal. With an enormous Wembley support behind them they should edge this and reach their first major tournament final since 1966. England 2 Denmark 1 (AET)
