Denmark vs England: a battle of resilience against ambition?

A racy night at Wembley will feature England locked out with Denmark in a mouthwatering semi-final fight. Denmark’s emotional roller coaster gears up for another ride as the ‘It’s Coming Home’ rallying cry engulfs Wembley.

Two chaotic defeats against Finland and Belgium after the Eriksen tragedy, Denmark has recovered like a warrior. As a wounded lion prepares to face the England Lions, the question will be whether ambitions will drive or stamina will outpace rivals.

For the Royal Three Lions, the extravagant expedition is endless. The questions blackened experts’ judgment on Gareth Southgate, who has impressed the world with his management tactics. Turning the clock back to 2018, the scenario was the same with England face homeless Croatia. We all know what happened, the veterans faltered and inspiration and tenacity triumphed.

A replica of 1992 for Denmark or 1966 for England, the thousands of fans at Wembley and the billions that will be glued to their televisions will witness a forever chronicle.

THE BATTLE OF TWO DEFENSIVE STARS

Two teams with rock solid defense, the Three Lions and the Danish Dynamites have conquered the defensive throne this summer. The roaring Wembley screamed ‘He’s coming home’ every second that Harry Maguire or Kyle Walker dispossessed the Ukrainian forwards. Or when Timo Werner’s thunderous punch was rescued by a jumping Jordan Pickford, even David Beckham gave Southgate’s defense a standing ovation. With no goals conceded in their glorious semi-final, the English defense has been astonishing this summer.

Gareth Southgate added four right-backs to his squad in England’s provisional squad. Perhaps a questionable decision? Well, for England, the defensive dominance has worked perfectly. The ship’s captain Maguire has enjoyed an exceptional outing for the Red Devils and their international squad. Luke Shaw or ‘Shawberto Carlos’ brought Southgate’s army to life with exceptional performances in the knockout stages.

Pickford hasn’t heard from opposing attackers throughout the tournament, as Toffee’s shooting stopper has rarely used his gloves throughout the tournament. While Kasper Schmeichel has struggled playing for the Danes, the Leicester City goalkeeper will once again be Denmark’s brick wall at Wembley. Fan tournament man Simon Kjaer teamed up with Andreas Christensen and Jannik Vestergaard, they have inspired Denmark’s fairytale journey.

A fierce defensive battle in England, Hjumland’s dreams were in the hands of solid defensive discipline. The heroic acts of 1992 could only be repeated if Kjaer and his two sub-studios command the starving English forwards. With Kane tasting blood and Sterling living a dream of scoring goals, England’s forwards could be licking their lips if the Danes falter even once. On the other hand, if Danish forwards break England’s flawless record, Southgate’s grin could turn into a frown.

THE ELEGANCE OF THE ATTACK

With a fourth Lion backing the homeboys when England host Denmark on Wednesday, the Euro 2020 semi-final could be a racy affair. The English striker attacker has beaten the opposition throughout the summer spree. Revenge against Croatia, beating Dieuppe and beating ‘The Blue and Yellow’ in the quarterfinals, the front battery has unlocked its full potential. The Danish defense has been nervous at times and the hungry duo of Kane and Sterling will look to boost their goal tally on Wednesday.

The Czech Republic turned out to be a headache by adding just one man in midfield. Eriksen’s collapse collapsed the attacking style in Denmark’s midfield that England could exploit. While the English armament consisting of Grealish, Sancho, Foden and Mount, carries the label of the new golden generation of England.

But the Danes possess a goal threat and once they sniff out an opportunity, the Danish train can rarely be stopped. Hjulmand, the grandmaster of management, modifies Denmark’s formations quite frequently and the determination and adaptation of the team helps the coach. 4 goals against an exhausted Welsh squad and the underdog Russia demonstrated Denmark’s offensive quality.

Kasper Dolberg has 3 goals under his belt and is a huge hurdle in the face of a billion dreams. Braithwaite and Damsgaard perfectly complemented the youngster with both forwards scoring a goal each for Denmark.

For England, they have hardly been wrong in their monumental journey to the semi-finals. Gareth Southgate’s tactics came under scrutiny after a draw against Scotland’s neighbors, but the Three Lions have remained true to their name. Control on defense and the presence of Kalvin Phillips on Southgate’s midfield fulcrum have bolstered his trophy opportunities.

Although Denmark is flying high, the English challenge could cut off their tails quite easily. While overconfidence is the only obstacle in England to winning the final innings against Italy.
