Wales vs Denmark build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
In the build up to the Euros, not many people will have given Wales a chance of reaching the knockout stages, placed in Group A alongside Switzerland, Turkey and Italy. But the Dragons, led by Rob Page, secure their spot in the last-16 as runners-up behind Italy having earned four points from their three matches. Wales opened the tournament with a draw against Switzerland and beat Turkey 2-0, two results that would see them finish above the former on goal difference – while they were only beaten 1-0 by Italy. Now fans will be dreaming of a run similar to Euro 2016 when Chris Coleman’s side reached the semi-finals.
Denmark also had to wait until the final day to secure their spot in the last-16 and it came in emotional circumstances. The Danes lost both of their opening two games of Euro 2020, beaten by Finland and Belgium, the latter seeing them let a 1-0 lead slip. But a 4-1 win over Russia in their final game, with goals coming from Mikkel Damsgaard, Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Christensen and Joakim Maehle helped Denmark finish second, ahead of Finland and Russia in a head-to-head mini league.
- Wales (vs Italy): Ward; Roberts, Rodon, Ampadu*, Gunter, Williams; Allen, Morrell; Bale, Ramsey, James.
- Denmark (vs Russia): Schmeichel; Vestergaard, Christensen, Kjaer; Wass, Delaney, Hojbjerg, Maehle; Braithwaite, Poulsen, Damsgaard.
Ethan Ampadu is suspended for Wales after his red card against Italy, but Denmark have no fresh concerns.

Players to watch:
- Wales: While Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey were the heroes of Euro 2016, Daniel James has been the man to step up this summer. The Manchester United winger has created eight chances at Euro 2020, more than any other Wales player and bettered only by four men (all on nine). Those chances have come at an average of 3.03 per 90 minutes, a far cry from his record with Man Utd in the Premier League, where he created just 0.99 chances per 90 in 2020/21. Unfortunately for James, those chances are yet to bring an assist, but he will be hoping he can play a part in Wales continuing at Euro 2020.
- Denmark: One of the four men to have created more chances than James is Denmark’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg who has used Euro 2020 to rip off his attacking restrictions. Premier League fans may be more used to Hojbjerg’s defensive role, especially at Tottenham where he is one of the holders. But he is one of Denmark’s biggest attacking threats from that same position, and has already recorded a joint-Euro 2020-high three assists, level with Steven Zuber. Hojbjerg has also levelled the all-time Danish assist record at a single major tournament, with no player every recording more than three for the nation.
