Denmark v England Correct Score Prediction & Preview
2020-21 UEFA Nations League, Group A2 preview – Denmark v England – Parken Stadium, Copenhagen – September 8,2020 – 19:45 hrs BST
Denmark v England Preview
England will be seeking to make it two consecutive wins in a row in the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League when they travel to Copenhagen to face Denmark on the night of September 8th.
The Three Lions opened their League A Group 4 campaign with a 1-0 win over the Icelanders away in Reykjavik, while Denmark went down 0-2 to Belgium to immediately drop to the bottom of the cluster.
The Three Lions despite all their ball possession at Reykjavik left it very late on as an injury time penalty sealed the three points against a stubborn Icelandic defense.
Gareth Southgate's men now face a more adventurous Denmark side and a more open game of football can be expected.
The Danes fell to a 0-2 home defeat against a formidable FIFA No.1 ranked Denmark team, but their failure to get one past Simon Mignolet does not mean they will not test the English back line to the full, especially with likes of Christian Eriksen, Yussuf Poulsen, Martin Braithwaite and Kasper Dolberg making up the front four.
The Danes have scored in nine of their last 11 games and while some of their opponents consisted of minnows, others do illustrate how formidable they are.
Switzerland, Republic of Ireland, Wales and Austria have all dropped points against Denmark and coach Kasper Hjulmand will be keen to build on the foundations left by his predecessor Age Hareide.
England will have the blistering pace of youngsters Jadon Sancho and Raheem Sterling on the flanks and the opportunism of Harry Kane to trouble the Danes.
With the latter having conceded in six of their last 11 outings, the chance for the likes of Sterling and Kane to find the back of net are bright.
Denmark will look to exploit some lingering defensive frailties of their forthcoming rivals especially with right back Kyle Walker suspended after his sending off in Rejkjavik.
England have conceded in eight of their last 14 fixtures away from home, so backing both teams to score makes sense.
As for England's team news, Marcus Rashford, Jordan Henderson, Harry Winks and Harry Maguire are among the notable absentees, and there could be more debutantes following Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood's outings against Iceland.
Mason Mount could take James Ward-Prowse's spot in midfield, but Foden is likely to keep out Jack Grealish and Kalvin Phillips to again feature in a midfield three.
Jordan Pickford is also likely to retain the gloves as he was chosen ahead of both Nick Pope and Dean Henderson on Saturday despite a patchy season for Everton.
The host side is filled with familiar names – Leicester City's goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, Chelsea's Andreas Christensen, Inter Milan's Christian Eriksen, Tottenham Hotspur's Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Barcelona's Martin Braithwaite all expected to start.
Kasper Dolberg has been in good nick for French club Nice since arriving from Ajax and should replace Andreas Cornelius in attack, while Yussuf Poulsen will feature in a striker's role.
Denmark possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Wass, Kjaer, Christensen, Skov; Delaney, Hojbjerg, Eriksen; Braithwaite, Dolberg, Poulsen
England possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Dier, Trippier; Mount, Rice, Foden; Sterling, Sancho, Kane
