England vs Denmark predictions

Sam Wallace, Daily Telegraph chief football writer - England 2 Denmark 0

Another big team selection for Southgate - is this Grealish's moment? Or Saka? Or Foden? At home England will want to dominate the early stages and use the power of the Wembley crowd. At the back they are in a run of form like no other.

Glenn Hoddle, former England manager - England 2 Denmark 1

It will not be easy as Denmark are on the crest of a wave, but I think the fact we are at Wembley nullifies that. If this was in Copenhagen, I would be worried because the atmosphere would be incredible. But that is not going to be the case. They are coming to our backyard.

Harry Redknapp, former Tottenham manager - England 2 Denmark 1

Mount and Kane.

Jamie Carragher, Telegraph Sport columnist - England 2 Denmark 1

I think it will be tight and Denmark have the firepower to get on the scoresheet but with Kane looking sharp again and his combination with Sterling looking fruitful it’ll get England over the line.

Tony Perry, Wembley DJ - England 2 Denmark 0

England on course to become the ENGvincibles!
