TIP: England to win and under 4.5 goals
England were not wholly convincing in their win against number 1 ranked team in the world, Belgium, on Sunday but still came out victorious. I do think the press have been a bit harsh though, on the stats the game was well balanced and although the hosts’ goals came from a slightly fortunate penalty and a deflected Mason Mount strike, they defended well, especially in the second half against a team who usually hammer in the goals.
Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish will be looking for a recall to add something else to the England frontline but options are plentiful for Gareth Southgate. Harry Kane was wanted back by Spurs but England refused to let him go back and he is likely to lead the line again here. Conor Coady will be hopeful of a place back in the starting back three after his excellent performance against Wales.
The Danes had an impressive 3-0 win at Iceland last time out and a win for them at Wembley would blow the group wide open given their draw against England in Copenhagen the other month. Whether they have the requisite quality or not I’m not so sure. They will certainly be competitive under Kasper Hjulmand, defensively they’re always well set up and it may take some time for England to break them down. Going forward they do have the likes of Christian Eriksen, Yussuf Poulsen and Kasper Dolberg but none of the trio had their best campaigns last season.
England fans will be expecting a win given this side beat a stronger side in Belgium and they’re rightfully odds-on favourites. We can boost the home win to even-money by adding under 4.5 goals along side an England win and that looks a good way in given the strong defences of both sides. The regularity of the hosts’ playing at Wembley and feeling comfortable on the big pitch should give them the edge against a narrow and compact Denmark side.
