England To Win To Nil

Reason for tip

England have won five of their last eight European Championship games and kept clean sheets in six of them. They limited Serbia to pot shots from range on Sunday and can keep out a Danish strikeforce that has been struggling of late. And in Trent Alexander-Arnold, Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham, they have the balance right in midfield to overthrow an aging Danish team.

England 2-0

Reason for tip

England have kept nine clean sheets in their last 13 tournament games dating back to the start of Euro 2020, so it would not be a shock to see them shut out the Danes. Denmark failed to score in two of their lats six matches – against Northern Ireland and Switzerland. They were defeated 2-0 by Northern Ireland and that score may be repeated against an England side that have not scored more than two goals in seven of their last eight Euro finals matches.

Jude Bellingham To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Jude Bellingham timed his entry into the box to perfection for England’s goal against Serbia to make it three strikes in his last five international appearances. On the back of hitting 23 for Real Madrid, the former Birmingham City starlet looks a solid shout to get on the scoresheet again.

Young Lions can dominate Danes in midfield

England will fancy their chances of collecting another three points in Group C when they face Denmark in Frankfurt on Thursday.

The Three Lions did enough to take the spoils in their opening clash with Serbia, despite letting their grip of the game slip in the second half.

Watching Gareth Southgate’s team go into their shell after taking the lead is nothing new and can be frustrating for their fans, but the team successfully achieved what they set out to do.

Clean sheet kings are at it again

The 1-0 victory in Gelsenkirchen was typical of Southgate’s reign in recent tournaments as it was accompanied by a clean sheet.

England have now shut out their opponents in nine of their last 13 games across Euro 2020, Qatar 2022 and the current finals in Germany at a ratio approaching 70%, which far exceeds the likes of Spain (42%), France (27%) or Croatia (17%) over the same period.

On Sunday, they limited their opponents to long-range efforts and optimistic penalty appeals in the main with Jordan Pickford only required to make one notable save as Serbia mustered an expected goals (xG) total of 0.17.

The performance of the back six as a whole was impressive with Marc Guehi slotting in alongside John Stones as if they had played together all their lives, Declan Rice protecting them well and the two full-backs showing their vast experience and defensive instincts.

Hojlund and Wind are blowing cold up front

Southgate has no reason to change the team against the Danes, who have been criticised for not doing what England did against the Serbs in their opener earlier on Sunday.

Kasper Hjulmand’s side were pegged back by Slovenia in a game where the quality of their chances was almost double that of their opponents, but Rasmus Hojlund could not finish a great move that could have put the result beyond doubt in the second half.

After bursting onto the international scene with six goals in his first six appearances, Hojlund has now scored only one goal in his last nine games for Denmark – in a 2-1 win over San Marino. Strike partner Jonas Wind is also blowing cold at the moment with no goal in his last six appearances for his country.

Slovenia, who hit the post through Benjamin Sesko’s vicious effort shortly before they equalised, took advantage of a drop-off in the Danes’ work-rate after the break as the older legs in Hjulmand’s midfield began to look weary.

Back Bellingham to break the deadlock

How the likes of Christian Eriksen, who completed only one full game for Manchester United in 2024, or perennial Tottenham substitute Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, cope with having to go again on a few days rest remains to be seen.

But England’s midfield is younger, fresher and has enough depth on the bench to maintain intensity levels right to the final whistle in this contest, which should see England record another win to nil.

International matches are often won in the middle of the park and, on the evidence of Sunday night, the balance of Trent Alexander-Arnold alongside Rice with Jude Bellingham roaming wherever he likes, will unsettle the best teams in the world.

Bellingham timed his entry into the box to perfection for England’s goal and, with three strikes in his last five international appearances on the back of hitting 23 for Real Madrid, the former Birmingham City starlet looks a solid shout to get on the scoresheet again.
