England will try to ride the wave of the home fans on Wednesday when it hosts Denmark in the semifinals of Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium. The British government has raised the allowed capacity to 60,000, and the nation is euphoric as the Three Lions appear to be on the verge of their first European championship. The previously quiet attack broke out in the Euro 2020 quarterfinals as Harry Kane scored twice in a 4-0 victory against Ukraine, and the defense has been impeccable. Denmark beat the Czech Republic 2-1 in Saturday's quarterfinals and has been playing stout defense of its own.
Kickoff from London is set for 3 p.m. ET. England is the -137 favorite (risk $137 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest England vs. Denmark odds from William Hill Sportsbook, with Denmark the +450 underdog.

Why you should back England
The Three Lions last played in Wembley in the round of 16, and a smaller crowd spurred the team to a rousing 2-0 win against Germany. England then went to Rome and throttled Ukraine, so the fans will be in top form. The attack was in form in the quarterfinal victory after scoring just two goals in the group stage, and Kane and Raheem Sterling are always dangerous. Kane led the Premier League in goals and assists and has had a hand in 20 goals (15 and five assists) in 13 Euro 2020 starts, which includes qualifying. Sterling has been responsible for 19 (11 and eight) in 12 appearances.
England scored 37 times in Euro 2020 qualifying but bunkered down in group play and got just two Sterling goals. The approach paid off, as the Three Lions haven't conceded a goal in the past seven games. Harry Maguire and John Stones center a defense that also features Luke Shaw and Kyle Walker, and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has 13 clean sheets in his past 18 starts. Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips and Jordan Henderson are all solid end-to-end players in midfield, while Mason Mount, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho all make a difference in attack.
Why you should back Denmark
The Danes have been driven by emotion after the collapse of star Christian Eriksen in the group-stage opener against Finland. They lost that game and the next one to world No. 1 Belgium, but a rousing 4-1 win against Russia got their confidence soaring. Denmark has scored 10 goals in its past three games. It has beaten England just four times in 21 all-time meetings (4-5-12), but three of those have come in the past six matchups. The most recent was in the UEFA Nations League in October, when the Danes outshot England 11-6 in a 1-0 victory.
Midfielders Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Thomas Delaney, who scored Saturday, have made up for the absence of Eriksen in facilitating the attack. Yussuf Poulsen, Kasper Dolberg and Martin Braithwaite are strong finishers. Dolberg has three goals in the past two matches, and Poulsen appears to have recovered from injury and has five goals in his past 15 international games. Kasper Schmeichel is an inspiring presence in the Denmark net, and Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer lead a defense that has yielded one goal to England in the past three meetings.
