Who and when will England play in Euro 2020 final if they beat Denmark?

England are potentially just 90 minutes away from their first major men’s tournament final since 1966 when they take on Denmark in their Euro 2020 semi-final on Wednesday night at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate’s side cruised through the quarter-finals with a 4-0 victory over Ukraine in Rome and they will be back at Wembley in front of 60,000 supporters to face the Danes.

A win would set up a final against Italy at Wembley on Sunday as the Three Lions look to make history.

The 4-0 success over Ukraine was arguably Gareth Southgate’s side most complete performance in the tournament so far, with Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw solid at the back, whilst Harry Kane found his shooting boots as he sets his sights on the Golden Boot.

Southgate became just the second manager to take England’s men to the semi-final of both the World Cup and the European Championship, after Alf Ramsey in 1966 and 1968.

Whilst the belief and excitement still remains up and down the country, England are just one game away from the Euro 2020 final, but Denmark stand in their way.

The Danes have been inspired by the unfortunate incident that involved Christian Eriksen during the group stages of the tournament, but have since ridden the wave of emotion and have captured the hearts of many football fans all over the world.

The two sides have enjoyed some good performances throughout the competition, but it was Kasper Hjulmand’s side that emerged victorious last time they visited Wembley, beating England 1-0 after Harry Maguire and Reece James were both sent off for the Three Lions.

But England will be hopeful that the 60,000 inside Wembley will aid them in achieving a different result.

And should England beat the Danes, they know Italy will be awaiting them.

Roberto Mancini’s side have been nothing short of sensational throughout the tournament, sweeping aside every team in their way with their expansive, attacking style of football.

They proved their quality during their quarter-final against Belgium, racing into a two-goal lead and managing to hold on for the win despite being pegged back after Romelu Lukaku tucked away a dubious penalty.

While on Tuesday night, the Italians emerged victorious after a penalty shoot-out with Spain to book their place in the Wembley final.

An enthralling clash saw Federico Chiesa curl Italy into the lead with 60 minutes on the clock but Alvaro Morata hit back with ten minutes to go to take the game to extra time.

Neither side could find the breakthrough in the extra 30 minutes and it was Morata who saw his penalty saved as he turned from hero to villain.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho then coolly stepped up to book a final against either England or Denmark on Sunday at 8pm.

It has been confirmed that both the BBC and ITV will show the final in the UK. It will also be available to watch for free on BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub.
