Gareth Southgate and his Three Lions were out for blood the moment they landed in Rome.
While there were whispers that a change of scenery might hinder England’s progress, Gareth Southgate ensured his men were more than up to the task of turning up on the evening and securing their place in the EURO 2020 (2021) Semi-finals.
The Three Lions were quick out of the gate. After a superb run, Raheem Sterling was able to sneak a pass through the lines and into the clinical feet of Harry Kane – who put England 1-0 up by the fourth minute of the game. Although the excitement petered out for the remainder of the first half, the English were back at it in full force after the break.
Harry Maguire and Kane were able to exploit the Ukrainian defence with ease, both finding the back of the net thanks to a well-delivered cross from Manchester United’s Luke Shaw. Jordan Henderson topped off the evening with his first goal for his country, converting a cross to head the ball beyond George Buschan in the Ukranian goal.
As the team that has played more games than any other in the European Championships without ever reaching the final, English fans will surely be on hand this Wednesday, ready to make the difference at Wembley Stadium. The pressure will be on Gareth Southgate and his Three Lions to end Denmark’s campaign and secure a position in a historic final that the nation has long been awaiting.
If you fancy a low scoring game, we’ve got under three goals on the market at 2/7 (1.28).

What an incredible journey it has been for Denmark so far.
After two forgivable losses early in the tournament, the Danes collected praise and wins against every other team they have faced in the EURO 2020 (2021) competition. Since they regrouped ahead of their final group stage game against Russia, Denmark have played like a team possessed, scoring eight goals in their last three games and always looking like the likely victors.
Making it to the semi-final round ahead of opponents Czech Republic was never going to be a walk in the park. While first-half goals from Thomas Delaney and Kasper Dolberg ultimately gave the Danes the edge over the 90 minutes, an effort by one of EURO 2020 (2021) stand out players, Patrik Schick, did allow a few nerves to creep in.
Their reward for progress? A semi-final clash against England.
While the odds may be against them making it to the final, Denmark fans will know their side have an unquantifiable belief pushing them – along with enough quality to hurt England and become the first-ever team to beat England three times at Wembley Stadium.
If you think these sides will really make a go of it and produce an absolute classic, we’ve got over 4 goals available at 8/1 (9.00).
