Gareth Southgate’s England side could book their place in the knockout stages of Euro 2024 with a win against Denmark on Thursday as they look to back up a mixed display against Serbia.

The Three Lions were less-than-convincing at times in the 1-0 win over Serbia on Sunday but thanks to Jude Bellingham’s header they are just a win away from qualifying, while Denmark are in need of a result after being frustrated by Slovenia in Group C

Denmark v England Match Preview

England have the upper hand in Group C heading into the second round of fixtures, despite a less-than-convincing second-half performance against Serbia.

Jude Bellingham scored a trademark header - more on that later - early in the match before England retreated and let Serbia back into the game to set up a nervy finale, which they came through with a clean sheet but almost leaving as many questions as answers at this early stage.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Phil Foden have been the two players to come under scrutiny after failing to convince in new roles, but I expect Gareth Southgate to keep the faith in what should be the toughest fixture of the group stage with Denmark a regular in the knockout rounds at recent tournaments.

Southgate will be hoping Harry Kane can get more involved than he was against Serbia - he had just two touches in the first half - and he hinted after the game that they had played to a specific gameplan against Serbia, which means we could see something slightly different this time out - but don’t expect anything radical.

For Denmark, they have made themselves into a hard-to-beat tournament team.

They disappointed in the Qatar World Cup but reached the semi-finals before losing to England three years ago at Euro 2020 and arguably have a stronger side this time round, with Rasmus Hojlund offering them a genuine cutting edge up front, Christian Eriksen shining in the Slovenia game and Joachim Andersen coming in off the back of an impressive campaign for Crystal Palace.

They were frustrated by the 1-1 draw in their opening game, conceding with 13 minutes left having led for the majority of the match and dominating possession as well as posting a higher xG than their opponents (1.66 v 1.10).

Hey Jude

My first tip has a hint of hindsight to it, but Bellingham is so adept at arriving late in the area that it is hard to see his header against Serbia being his last headed goal of the tournament.

Southgate has made a point of saying how he has positioned the Real Madrid star in his side so that he can arrive late in the area, and with four headed goals for Real last season he is certainly a threat in the air. That threat will only increase as Luke Shaw comes back to fitness but with Alexander-Arnold in the side, expect them to keep looking for Bellingham’s late runs into the area.

He is a very tempting 18/1 with CopyBet to score another header in this game, and I’d be very tempted to put a small stake on that.

Target Man

There is so much hype and talk around Bellingham currently, and he backed that up in the first half hour against Serbia. His drive with the ball and ability to commit players before coasting past them is one of his biggest assets, but that does mean he goes into each game with a target on his back.

Disrupting Bellingham will be a key game plan for any of England’s opponents, as Serbia showed as they fouled him four times over the course of the match.

While Denmark may not be quite as cynical an opposition - though expect Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to be a pest - I think they will target Bellingham and stop him from reaching full flow, so for him to be fouled over 2.5 times at 12/5 with Betfair immediately catches the eye.

More Southgate detractors?

There is no getting away from the fact that Southgate has his detractors, and probably always will no matter where he takes this England side.

He has navigated major tournaments better than any recent England manager and key to that has been securing an early passage through from the group stages, which means managing the results carefully.

In both Euro 2020 and World Cup 2022, England followed up an opening win with an uninspiring draw (against Scotland in 2020 and USA in 2022, both 0-0). While this could just be how the games turned out, it left England with 4 points on both occasions and essentially qualified.

Southgate will be desperate to avoid defeat against Denmark so I’m expecting another fairly low-key, relatively drab game that will ultimately leave England in a better position, so take a draw at 11/4 with Betway.
