Speaking on ITV, Gary Neville says he has been really touched by the current England team: “They are destroying our nightmares of the past. They don’t have cynicism, they don’t have egos. “
“I’ve been gathering opinions here in Sweden, and a surprising number of locals are supporting England today,” reveals Julian Menz. “Sweden / Denmark is a bit like England / Scotland (history, some minor border dispute, etc.), but I suspect the preference is due to the Swedes being able to bet on the results of English clubs since the era of muddy fields. . Everyone here seems to follow an English club. Come on England! “Your theory seems dubious. In my experience, gambling does not generate affection. I, at least, have eventually come to hate all the teams I have supported, they always disappoint you in the end. Don’t play games, kids , buy comics instead!
“Re: Denmark is way above the weight of its population in football terms: Is Denmark the New Zealand of football?” Jesse Linklaer asks. “New Zealand are world champions in cricket and rugby, and they also sail, all while being the 126th largest nation in the world.” Hmm, I would say that Uruguay is closer to being the New Zealand of soccer … but also that there is no New Zealand of soccer, because relatively few countries play rugby or cricket, so no comparison is sensible for that reason.
Speaking of history, we should note that England and Denmark have met 21 teams in the past. England have won 12, there have been five draws and Denmark have won four, including the most recent meeting, which was at Wembley and ended 1-0 for the visitors thanks to a penalty from, yes, Eriksen.
“While the commentators are using the story as a guide to results, I’m surprised no one mentioned Hamlet,” drags Andre Street. Is it the one of the player who puts out a cigarette in the eye of another?
QuestionIn football, Denmark is currently ranked 10th in the world. In terms of population size, they rank 114th in the world. Why the discrepancy? Answers in a doctorate to the usual address please …
“The Danes have shown themselves to be a dynamic and skilled team throughout this tournament, but it is also true that the emotions they experienced with Eriksen’s collapse and recovery and his poor treatment by UEFA have given them an advantage. extra ”, diagnoses David Wall. “At some point, those heightened emotions will stop energizing them and instead become draining (see Emma Raducanu for an example of how that can build up and then collapse). They’ll hope that doesn’t happen until after the tournament (and it will be interesting to see how Danish players perform for their clubs next season). But assuming it happens tonight, or in the final if they win tonight, what could the coach do to prevent his performance level from falling off a cliff? ”.
It’s a fair concern to raise, although you might turn things around and wonder how England will deal with the surge of expectations surrounding them. As for the Danes, they experienced a kind of sagging in their last match, although it was probably the heat from Azerbaijan that weakened them, and they responded impressively, regaining control of the game after a double substitution around the hour.
Hello, something extraordinary is about to happen.. Today we find out if England … yes, England! – or Denmark – yes, Denmark! – they are going to reach the final of the European Championship – yes, the final of Euro 2020! Italy awaits one or the other of these teams, who today hope to get closer to what would be a sensation order.
First of all, England. Can they really do it? So far, Gareth Southgate’s grand plan seems to fit like a Beatles song and a lot seems to be in England’s favor: home-field advantage, a relatively benign draw so far, a team so strong that the Champions League winners They have been unused substitutes, confidence boosting, and a terrace anthem that inspires them as much as it irritates opponents. But can England? Yes, England! – Do you really navigate all the way through a tournament from start to finish without some kind of mistake or misfortune or cowardly intervention from one source or another? Have all fears about your Pickfords, your Stones, your Sterling, your Kanes, and anyone else who have been denounced as a weak link banished? Has a relatively controversial tournament turned into a monumental VAR outrage? How difficult is it to adapt to a reality in which England calmly advance with players whose words and deeds seem almost exclusively admirable? Is the door really the goat? Today it promises to get much closer to the answer to those and many other intriguing questions. The truth will come out.
While everything has seemed fine so far For England, Denmark has been boosted in part by the strength drawn from their traumatic start to the tournament. This is not like their previous triumph, when Danish players practically showed up in Hawaiian jerseys before surprising the continent by winning Euro 92, this time their preparation was much more stressful. In fact, talk to the Danish people and they tell you that the way their players and management responded to Christian Eriksen’s ordeal in the first match has given a new dimension to this team, which is now seen not only as splendid footballers but as as representatives of all Danish society. model, which is based on the belief that solidarity, rather than simple self-interest, can bring prosperity. If that kind of talk is not to your liking, you must at least admit that Denmark has some excellent players who could put England through the toughest test they have faced so far. Something extraordinary is about to happen …
