Arsenal’s

Bukayo Saka

will start the semi-final game against

Denmark

after missing the Three Lions’ quarter-final game. Southgate has decided to use Saka in his lineup after recovering from his ankle injury despite Sancho’s good performance in his absence.

England

will probably start the game with no other changes, and Hjulmand’s lineup is expected to be 3-4-3 to the Three Lions from reaching the Euro final for the first time. Hjulmand thinks that despite their good performance and playing in their homeland, the pressure will be on the home team because they are preparing to make history by reaching the final of a major tournament for the first time since the 1966 World Cup.

"We don’t have as good of a football history as we like to believe sometimes,"

he said ahead of kick-off

. "These players are breaking barriers, we have never been to a Euros final, we respect the Danes that have won it and I watched that tournament.

"How could we have confidence in Russia when we weren’t regularly beating top teams. We lost to France just before and Germany in a friendly. You can’t have genuine confidence but just hope.

"We have since had a win over here Germany and with Belgium and Spain in the UEFA Nations League. There’s genuine belief. There’s another step to consistently go on that kind of run.

"Denmark have only lost to Belgium, while Italy and Spain are on tremendous runs. To win these games consistently has to be our aim."
