Denmark vs England Euro 2024 Prediction: Three Lions' chance for qualification

England will be hoping to secure their spot in the last 16 of Euro 2024 when they take on Denmark.

Denmark vs England latest prediction

It wasn’t convincing but England started Euro 2024 with a victory. Jude Bellingham scored the only goal of the game as England beat Serbia 1-0, winning their opening match of a major tournament for the fourth time under Gareth Southgate. Their 100% record started with a 1-0 win over Tunisia at the 2018 World Cup and has also seen them beat Croatia 1-0 to kick off Euro 2020 and Iran 6-2 at the start of the 2022 World Cup.

Denmark, on the other hand, drew their opening match against Slovenia, with Christian Eriksen’s first-half opener being cancelled out. The Danes reached the semi-finals at Euro 2020 where they were beaten by England, and are aiming to make another statement on the international stage. Of course, they famously won the European Championship in 1992 despite not initially qualifying.

It means that going into the second round of fixtures, England can secure their spot in the last 16. Victory will be enough for the Three Lions, regardless of the result in the other game. Denmark need to avoid defeat to keep their destiny in their own hands.

The showdown between Denmark and England takes place on June 20th at 5pm (UK time) at Deutsche Bank Park, Frankfurt.

England were flirting with conceding against Serbia on Sunday, looking to sit deep to protect their lead after going 1-0 up. However, that didn’t really translate to chances at England’s goal.

Although Serbia finished the game with six shots to England’s five, they only hit the target once. Serbia also had an xG of just 0.18. England have now gone five consecutive group-stage matches at the European Championship without conceding. They’re the first team to achieve such a feat, last conceding against Wales in their second group game of Euro 2016.

Denmark confirmed line-up:

  • Schmeichel; Andersen, Christiansen, Vestergaard; Maehle, Hjulmand, Hojbjerg, Kristiansen; Eriken; Wind, Hojlund (3-4-1-2)

Kasper Hjulmand has often switched between a back four and a back three for Denmark but so far has opted for the latter this summer. In this defence, Andreas Christensen, Jannik Vestergaard and Joachim Andersen are the centre-backs ahead of Kasper Schmeichel in goal.

Morten Hjulmand gets the nod in midfield alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, with Christian Eriksen in front of them. Jonas Wind and Rasmus Hojlund start again as the strike partnership, with Kasper Dolberg and Yussuf Poulsen options from the bench.

The only potential change could see Joakim Maehle come in at either wing-back position.

England confirmed line-up:

Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier; Alexander-Arnold, Rice; Saka, Bellingham, Foden; Kane (4-2-3-1)

Gareth Southgate has named an unchanged line-up from the team deployed in a 4-3-3 against Serbia — which also worked as a 4-2-3-1, with Jude Bellingham pushing further forward. Phil Foden received some criticism from fans for his performance, as did Trent Alexander-Arnold to an extent.

Kieran Trippier looked to have pulled up against Serbia, but finished the match with it later confirmed he was only suffering with cramp. Marc Guehi was one of the standout performers last time out, which will ease the nerves of a lot of fans regarding England’s defence.

Denmark vs England head-to-head
