Nations League Betting Tips: Denmark v England

England look to build on Saturday’s UEFA Nations League victory over Iceland on Saturday when they visit Denmark on Tuesday evening.

Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions dominated possession and territory against Iceland, but just as they did in their infamous Euro 2016 exit, struggled against their deep defensive low block, looking laboured and very much in pre-season mode. 

 

This didn’t look the same England side that reached the 2018 World Cup semi-finals, topped their inaugural Nations League group over Spain and Croatia, and romped Euro 2020 qualification with seven wins from eight and 31 goals scored. 

 

In spite of playing 19 minutes with an extra man, following Kyle Walker’s two bookings, they did eventually find the breakthrough with Raheem Sterling converting an injury-time penalty following a handball inside the area - although they had something of a let-off when Birkir Bjarnason failed to convert a penalty two minutes later.

 

The England boss may be looking to make some changes here, and will be without right-back Kyle Walker (suspended), while debutant duo Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood have been sent home after breaking COVID-19 protocols.

 

That means we could be in for international debuts for Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles. They’re 13/1, 5/1 and 14/1 respectively to score anytime with Paddy Power, while Harry Kane (top scorer in the squad with 32 England goals) is the favourite - 16/5 first, and 13/10 anytime.

 

Hosts Denmark are looking to bounce back from a 2-0 home defeat to Belgium on Saturday, but they were solid throughout 2019, going unbeaten in Euro 2020 qualifying with four wins and four draws from eight outings. 

 

Still, the hosts are outsiders here, 27/10 for the home win (via Betfair Sportsbook), while a draw is 12/5 and an away win is just 11/10. England have won their last two meetings with Denmark, both friendlies, in 2014 and 2011.

 

We recommend backing Raheem Sterling to score first, at 9/2 with Paddy Power. The Manchester City attacker has nine goals in his last 10 international appearances following Saturday’s match-winning penalty.

Denmark 0 - 0 England - Match Report

England far from wonderful in Copenhagen but pick up a Nations League point

England ended the most challenging international camp of Gareth Southgate’s reign with another forgettable display as their Nations League trip to Denmark finished goalless.

As if the coronavirus measures, fitness concerns and Harry Maguire’s withdrawal were not enough for the Three Lions boss to contend with, Southgate sent Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden home on the eve of the Copenhagen clash after breaching the bio bubble.

Southgate certainly has plenty to mull over after their first international break in 10 months, with England failing to score from open play in either of their matches as Tuesday’s encounter in Denmark ended in a 0-0 draw.

Three days on from Raheem Sterling’s penalty sealing an unconvincing win in Iceland, the Three Lions again frustrated with the attackers isolated and midfield lacking creativity in front of a three-man backline featuring debutant Conor Coady.

Kalvin Phillips was the other new boy in the starting line-up against Denmark, who looked the bigger first-half threat and went closest through a Kasper Dolberg strike that forced Jordan Pickford into action.

The match continued in a similar vein until Southgate brought on Mason Mount and debutant Jack Grealish, but there was not enough time – or perhaps energy left in their team-mates’ legs – to eke out victory against Kasper Hjulmand’s Danes.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles became England’s fourth debutant of the evening – and sixth across these two matches – before Harry Kane saw a stoppage-time winner denied by Mathias Jorgensen’s goal-line clearance.

This match was played behind closed doors in Copenhagen, although the Danish Football Union had hoped to have fans here after a small number of supporters had been allowed into domestic fixtures.

One-way systems and social distancing spacing were visible around FC Copenhagen’s Parken home, with Wolves and Leeds toasting a momentous night as Coady and Phillips became their club’s first England starters since 1990 and 2003 respectively.

The former looked at home from the outset and was bellowing at team-mates, almost going as far as coaching them as the Three Lions returned to a three-man backline he is so used to at club level.

Coady was providing diagonal passes as well as a solid heart of the backline, but the formation was leaving England’s attack isolated and the midfield was struggling to create with Phillips alongside similarly defence-minded Declan Rice.

Final balls were being cut out by the Denmark defence in a stop-start opening to proceedings, with the hosts looking the most likely to score in the first half.

Dolberg whistled a strike just over from an acute angle after running at the Three Lions’ defence and Martin Braithwaite, the former Middlesbrough flop now at Barcelona, produced a lovely touch and fizzing strike just wide.

Pickford came to the rescue in the 37th minute when Christian Eriksen rolled former Tottenham team-mate Eric Dier and played in Dolberg, whose fierce near-post shot was turned behind.

England held firm into the break and made no half-time alterations, with Denmark continuing to be more productive in their attacking endeavours.

Southgate turned to Mount in the 60th minute in a bid to inject some much-needed creativity, just moments after Sterling put through Kane to get away a shot that Kasper Schmeichel saved unaware that the offside flag was raised.

The change had the desired effect as England began to threaten more.

Mount cut back for Kieran Trippier in the 69th minute, with the left wing-back cutting onto his right foot and curling a cross to the far post that Kane met with a header just over.

Schmeichel pushed a bouncing Sterling strike around the post a minute later, before playmaker Grealish came on for his debut in place of Phillips with 15 minutes remaining.

Eriksen flashed a strike just over under pressure from Joe Gomez as Denmark threatened a late winner but, after Maitland-Niles’ arrival, England were denied another stoppage-time triumph.

Kane outmuscled Andreas Christensen and rounded out-of-position Schmeichel before finding the target from an acute angle – only for Jorgensen to clear off the line.
