England will be looking to build on their victories over Wales and Belgium when they host Denmark in a UEFA Nations League clash at Wembley tonight.
The Three Lions moved to the top of the Group A2 standings with their win over Belgium on Sunday, while the Danes thrashed Iceland 3-0 in their most recent match to keep their campaign alive.
Here's our preview.
🏟 Match context
That victory in Wembley helped the Three Lions get a slight advantage in the group, as they now lead second-placed Belgium by a point. So Gareth Southgate’s men will be hoping to retain that lead when they once again come out to play at Wembley, this time against Denmark.
The Danes are pretty much in the fight, having notably registered as a comfortable 3-0 win over Iceland in their last game. They currently have four points on the board and are pushing for a second spot. However, a win over England could potentially put them level on points with the table-topper, should Belgium slump to a defeat against Iceland.
Unfortunately, the Icelanders have lost all their matches in this relatively tougher group.
🔮 Predicted XIs
England (3-4-3): Pickford; Walker, Maguire, Mings; James, Phillips, Rice, Chilwell; Sancho, Kane, Rashford.
Denmark (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Wass, Kjaer, Christensen, Skov; Delaney, Hojbjerg; Poulsen, Eriksen, Braithwaite; Dolberg.
