England vs Denmark line-ups: team news and predicted squad ahead of Euro 2024

England take on Denmark in their second match of Euro 2024 and will be looking to improve on their nervy win over Serbia in the opening match.

Jude Bellingham’s first-half goal was enough to take three points, but Gareth Southgate’s side rarely looked in control in the second half and were lucky at times.

Denmark shared a draw with Slovenia in their opening match after Christian Eriksen’s early goal delighted fans in his first European Championship appearance since collapsing on the pitch three years ago.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Group C match.

What’s the team news?

England have no further injury concerns after their opening win against Serbia, although Luke Shaw has been training away from the group as the left-back continues an individualized program after returning from injury. He is unlikely to feature as Kieran Trippier will continue at left-back.

It would make sense for Southgate to go with roughly the same starting line-up as he appears to have consolidated his favorite XI. While there are still questions over who will play in midfield alongside Declan Rice, expect Trent Alexander-Arnold to start again given his encouraging performance in the opener.

For Denmark, expect a similar line-up to the one that started the draw against Slovenia, with several players – including Andreas Christensen, Jannik Vestergaard, Christian Eriksen and Morten Hjulmand – unable to be dropped. If they struggle in attack, we could see Mikkel Damsgaard or Kasper Dolberg off the bench, but the starting XI seems quite rigid.

Predicted lineups

Denmark: Schmeichel; Andersen, Christensen, Vestergaard; Bah, Hjulmand, Hojbjerg, Kristiansen; Eriksen; Wind, Hojlund

England: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier; Rice, Alexander-Arnold; Foden, Bellingham, Saka; Kane

Draw – 21/10

England – 15/8

Prediction

England have the perfect opportunity to qualify for the round of 16 and the opportunity to rest players in their final group match, so expect a determined performance to try to answer the questions raised after their nervy opening win. The Three Lions should have enough quality in midfield and attack to beat Denmark, although the impressive defensive duo of Stones and Geuhi will have to avoid the threat of the likes of Eriksen, Hojlund and Hjulmand. Denmark 0-2 England
