Nations League: England vs Denmark

England will look to build their victories against Wales and Belgium as they take on Denmark in Wednesday night's UEFA Nations League clash at Wembley. The Three Lions rose to the top of the A2 standings with a win over Belgium on Sunday, while Denmark beat Iceland 3-0 in their last match to maintain their campaign.

The first 40 minutes of Sunday's match at Wembley show that Belgium have proved exactly why they are the top ranked country in the world right now. However, Marcus Rashford's penalty and Mason Mount's deflected shot helped Gareth Southgate's army return to a 2-1 win, completely changing the situation of Group A2 in the process. He is 1 point ahead of Belgium and 3 points ahead of Denmark and the Three Lions are still at the top of the table. Southgate claimed that victory over Belgium, which had previously lost only three of their 46 matches under Roberto Martinez, would bring confidence to his side. After showing once more they have the ability to beat another heavyweight country, the Three Lions can now squeeze the top spot with a win at Wembley on Wednesday. He won 20 of the last 21 matches at home, although they had a very difficult match against Denmark when the two teams met in Copenhagen a month ago. Southgate's team is currently unbeaten in the last 7 matches and conceded only in 1 match from Romelu Lukaku's penalty last. Despite the risk of suffering the wrath of Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho, Southgate will still use Kane against Denmark as he recovers from a minor injury.

Martin Braithwaite and Eriksen started both of their matches last week but are unlikely to rest for this big one. Mathias Jensen was an unused substitute against Iceland and could provide Hjulmand with a new element in the midfield, while Pione Sisto was another person pushing for integration. Denmark also entered this match in good form, having taken 1 point against England last month they beat the Faroe Islands 4-0 in a friendly and easily won against Iceland in the first leg. latest match. Christian Eriksen and Robert Skov scored in that match for Kasper Hjulmand their first win as manager.
