England's last trip to the semifinals of the UEFA European Championship came in 1996 and the result was disappointing, as the Three Lions fell to Germany on penalty kicks. England's most recent appearance in the knockout rounds of the tournament was a quarterfinal meeting with Italy in 2012, when it lost in similar fashion. A chance at revenge is available as the Italians earned a spot in this weekend's final, but England first must get past Denmark when the squads square off Wednesday in the Euro 2020 semifinals. The English have had the upper hand in the all-time series against the Danes, losing only five of the 23 matchups.
Kickoff from Wembley Stadium in London is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET. The latest England vs. Denmark odds from William Hill Sportsbook list England as -137 favorites (risk $137 to win $100), while the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Top Euro 2020 predictions for England vs. Denmark
The model is leaning over 2.5 goals in Wednesday's matchup between England and Denmark. The English are coming off a 4-0 victory over the Ukraine in the quarterfinals, their first four-goal performance in the knockout stage of any major tournament since defeating West Germany 4-2 in the final of the 1966 World Cup. Raheem Sterling shares the club lead of three goals at Euro 2020 with Harry Kane, who scored twice against Ukraine. The 27-year-old Kane also was an offensive force during qualifying, leading all players with 12 goals as he tallied in every one of England's eight contests.
England has yet to allow a goal at Euro 2020, but the run of clean sheets is likely to end as Denmark has produced 10 goals over its last three games. After losing their first two matches, the Danes registered a four-goal effort against Russia in their final group-stage match and another versus Wales in the round of 16 before defeating the Czech Republic 2-1 in the quarterfinals. Denmark has set a team record with 11 tallies at Euro 2020, eclipsing the previous mark of 10 it totaled in the 1986 World Cup.
