England v Denmark: Kick off time, TV channel and odds to win

Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions breezed through the quarter-final stage of Euro 2020 as they thumped Ukraine 4-0 on Saturday night in Rome.

They also became the first country to progress to the semi-final stage of the tournament without conceding a goal. 

After topping the group, beating old foes Germany and now facing Denmark in the semi-final expectations are higher than ever, especially now that captain Harry Kane seems to have found his scoring boots at just the right time. 

An impressive Denmark side stand between England and their second ever final, having fallen at the penultimate hurdle at major tournaments on four occasions since winning the World Cup in 1966.

The galling World Cup semi-final defeat to Croatia three years ago was the latest but Southgate believes his side have learned from that disappointment and are ready to write their own history once again.

“We’ve knocked off so many hoodoos or perceived barriers already and I feel like this group of players will feel this is just the next challenge,” the England manager said.

Both semi-finals will be held at Wembley, where up to 60,000 fans could be cheering on their nations. 

So, when is kick-off for England’s game against Denmark and which channel will it be shown on? This is what we know so far. 

When is the England v Denmark game? 

Harry Kane will lead his team onto home turf on Wednesday night, 7 July. 

The game is the second of two semi final games, Spain will face Italy on Tuesday 6 June, also at Wembley Stadium. 

What time is the England v Denmark kick-off? 

Kick off will take place at 8pm, with coverage from 7-10:30pm. 

What channel will it be on? 

The game will be shown on ITV1. 

ITV had the first pick over which of the two semi-finals it wanted to cover and unsurprisingly chose England v Denmark. Italy v Spain will be shown on BBC One.

What are England’s chances of winning? 

The two sides have not faced one another in a major tournament since the 2002 World Cup, where England won 3-nil. 

It appears a similar result is expected, as Betfair have England as favourites to reach the finals, which take place on Sunday 11 July. 

The early Match Odds see England as the odds-on favourites at 1.76, Denmark at 5.8, with the Draw trading at 3.9.

England’s quarter-final result

On Wednesday, England will be hoping for much the same as they achieved on Saturday night, when Ukraine failed to get the ball in the net and England managed another clean sheet win.

England captain Harry Kane narrowly missed out on a hat-trick, taken off by manager Gareth Southgate after scoring two stunning goals in the sixth and 50th minutes. 

Harry McGuire performed a flawless header less than two minutes into the second half, just as Ukraine were beginning to find their feet. 

Kane’s second goal took the wind out of Ukraine’s sails, as they struggled to fight through the disappointment, as midfielder Luke Shaw confidently danced with the ball as he set up several opportunities for Kane, McGuire and finally, Henderson with another header in the 63rd minute. 

At 90 minutes, just as Ukranian manager Shevchenko was preparing to bow out by giving three young players a shot at a Euro’s cap, the whistle blew. 

The referee decided there was no extra time for Ukraine to revive themselves, the team exited the tournament with a devastating 4-0 defeat. 

England now face Denmark, who executed their own 4-0 thrashing against Wales in their Round of 16 match.
