England v Denmark Match Preview & Trends

Will England slay the ghost of Euro 96 or can Denmark draw inspiration from ‘92 heroes?

Denmark travel to London as any people’s favourite team or adopted nation after the way they have captured the hearts and imagination of the public in the last month. They do however, remain the underdogs in terms of football without the emotions. Statistically England look too strong but as we know, nothing is won on paper.

The tournament has had shocks and upsets, will the unpredictable trend continue in this fascinating knockout phase? With the quality of players on show, anything can happen and we are in for another enthralling 90 minutes as we approach the final stages.

England seem to have found their creative spark with two goals against Germany followed up with another four in the Ukraine quarter-final. Gareth Southgate’s tactical alterations are paying dividends and the sharp rotation of his squad has benefitted the Three Lions the further into the competition they go. With home advantage, the supporters are all dreaming of football coming home but will there be more years of hurt for England fans?

Denmark have endured a rollercoaster ride so far but their transformation is nothing short of remarkable. The way they have picked themselves up from adversity and losing their first two matches has been nothing short of inspirational. Some of the football they have played in the last three matches has been incredible and they will pose a serious threat to anyone in front of them.

England have covered 524.6km in the tournament so far and has maintained a passing accuracy of 88% and averaged 53% possession. The English have made 172 passes into the attacking third with 85 of those in key areas. They have completed 19/63 crosses, which left them at 30%. In comparison, Denmark has covered 525.9km in the first four games, maintaining a passing accuracy of 82% and averaged 54% possession. The Danish made 201 passes into the attacking third with 121 of those in key areas. They completed 30/113 crosses, which left them at 26%.
