Euro 2024

Group B

Denmark v England

Deutsche Bank Park

Frankfurt, Germany

Thursday, 20 June 2024

Kick-off is at 18h00 


England will be looking to firm their grip on top spot in Group B when they face Denmark at the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt on Thursday, June 20.


The Three Lions made a winning start to their Euro 2024 campaign after beating Serbia 1-0 at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen on June 16, courtesy of Jude Bellingham's 13th-minute goal.


Gareth Southgate's side are amongst the favourites to win the tournament in Germany, having reached the final at Euro 2020 which saw them lose to Italy on penalties.


Southgate felt his team should have scored more than just the one goal against the Eagles, but was pleased with their efforts in defence as the energy levels of his players began to drop in the second half.

"I thought first half we used the ball really well, had control of the game. Probably should have scored a second," he said. "I was worried about us energy-wise and how we would be and I thought that showed a little bit [in the second half].


"Also then we didn't keep the ball quite as well ... so less control. Still we had an excellent chance towards the end, but [I'm] pleased that we had to show a different side, that we had to show that resilience to defend our box because I think as a group that really builds a huge spirit.


"We defended very well as a unit. Our team ran out of some energy and that didn't surprise me because the lack of 90 minutes that lots of the players have had.


"The substitutes helped us with that. I think we can be more efficient in the way we played in the first half which would also help us moving forward."


The Red and Whites trail England by two points in second half after playing out to a 1-1 draw with Slovenia at the MHPArena in Stuttgart on June 16.


Kasper Hjulmand's side took the lead through Christian Eriksen on 17 minutes, but they had to settle for a share of the spoils as Erik Janza found the equaliser 13 minutes from time.


Denmark surprised many by making it to the semi-finals in the 2020 edition which was their best showing since winning the title in 1992, having failed to even qualify for Euro 2016.


Eriksen's goal came exactly 1,100 days since he collapsed on the pitch during the group game against Finland in Copenhagen on 12 June 2021 and the Manchester United midfielder was delighted to be able to experience a much better outcome on this occasion.

"I do think this time in the Euros, my story is very different compared to last time," he said. "I did have in mind that I hadn't scored at the Euros, so obviously that was on my mind.


"But nothing else than football was on my mind. Really just happy to help the team with the first goal. Obviously, in the end, there would have been a different story if we had the three points.


"We would also be a lot happier and a lot more confident. But I think it's a wake-up call for us to go into the next game."
