Schmeichel: Denmark are the favorites against England

Wed 07 July 2021 | 15:48

The former shot-stopper thinks Denmark are the favorites against The Three Lions in their Euro 2020 semi-final clash tonight.

Peter Schmeichel

believes that

Denmark

have the upper hand against

England

on Wednesday, when they lock horns in Euro 2020 semi-final clash at Wembley.

The winner of the battle will face Italy in the final. Despite

Gareth Southgate

’s men being the favorites to win against 

Kasper Hjulmand

's side, Denmark legend Schmeichel believes otherwise.

 "

If I'm honest, I think Denmark are favourites,"

he told Manchester United's website.

"I think it's going to be tight. There are great similarities between the managers. [They are] very similar in their approach, man management, how they want to play the game, [they're] very flexible, they keep very solid at the back and in midfield and then they have creativity in the wider areas and people who are getting on the end of chances up front.

"I really do believe this is very evenly balanced, in spite of what people may read in England. It's very much about what happens on the day."

Denmark had a difficult journey coming to the last four of the tournament after

Christian Eriksen

suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch during their first game and they were defeated at the hands of Finland and Belgium.

However, they bounced back with a thumping 4-1 victory over Russia to qualify for the knockout round and defeated Wales 4-0 in the Round of 16. They then vanquished the Czech Republic in the last eight to book a spot in the semi-finals.

England, meanwhile, had a smoother run as they finished the group stage having earned seven points. They beat Germany and Ukraine in the knockout stages to make their way to the semi-finals. Southgate’s men have not conceded a goal at Euro 2020 yet.
