England vs Denmark Live Euro 2021 semifinal: Time, TV, streams, odds and prediction
It's England's most recent great chance to win it back: In the first-ever participation in a Euro title match, beat Denmark in a Euro 2021 semifinal at London's Wembley Stadium and then host the final four days later.
It's the ideal setting for the English, who will play in front of a crowd of 60,000 primarily partisan fans (8,000 Danes are also expected) as they attempt to make their first major tournament quarterfinal appearance since 1966. They've been eliminated in the semifinals of the World Cup (1990, 2018) and the Euros four times before (1968, 1996).
Denmark, on the other hand, has played some of the finest soccer of any team at the Euros, and that despite witnessing star player Christian Eriksen survive a cardiac arrest episode during a match. The Danes have the firepower to be the first team to score against England in this tournament, with 11 goals scored.
Denmark, unlike England, had won the Euros before, in 1992, on a Cinderella run. The 2021 team, however, is no Cinderella. They are ranked No. 10 in the world. With players from Europe's best leagues, many had the Danes as dark-horse favorites to win the tournament before Eriksen's injury.
When was the last time Denmark took on England? Last October, at Wembley Stadium, there was a Nations League match. Denmark won by a score of 1-0. (highlights below). In reality, they've won three and drawn one of the seven matches they've played since the turn of the century.

England vs. Denmark: Predictions and Odds
After being the focus of attention at the Euros for several weeks, Denmark has faded into the background amid the celebrations around England's return to Wembley Stadium for the semifinal and possible final. The Danes, on the other hand, present a difficult matchup for England.
Denmark is a dynamic team that can shift rapidly down the field and consistently push numbers into the attack. Onset pieces, this Danish squad will not be the pushover as Ukraine was. In truth, the Danes have only conceded after three moments of world-class brilliance from Patrik Shick (Czech Republic) and Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium), ignoring the upset loss to Finland in difficult circumstances and Russia's penalty-kick conversion (Belgium).
England is skilled and deep, but it will encounter some challenges in this semifinal, and it will be intriguing to see how it handles the pressure and expectations. Denmark, on the other hand, has nothing to lose and will play spoiler like the team that won the World Cup in 1992.
As a result, the both-teams-to-score prop stands out with a price that reflects England's lack of conceding at Euro 2021. In this game, both clubs should be goal-scoring threats.
In addition, the contrarian play is in play here, with the Denmark double chance (draw or win) being particularly appealing.
England 1, Denmark 2 is my prediction.
