Euro 2020 – England vs Denmark Live: Saka to replace Jadon Sancho in England’s line up for big game- Bukayo Saka is likely to be back in the starting lineup against Denmark as Jadon Sancho is expected to make way for him in the Euro 2020 semifinal at Wembley.
Saka was very lively in the last group game against the Czech Republic. He subsequently was picked in England’s clash against Germany and again showed some impressive display before being subbed by Jack Grealish.
He was on course to his third consecutive appearance but injured his ankle in the training and missed Three Lions 4-0 thrashing of Ukraine.

Sancho started his first game in the tournament and had a relatively good outing in that game. But Gareth Southgate will repose his faith in Saka who had a brilliant campaign with Arsenal.
The rest of the team will remain the same as the England gaffer will stick to a 4-2-3-1 formation.
“We don’t have as good of football history as we like to believe sometimes. These players are breaking barriers, we have never been to a Euros final, we respect the Danes that have won it and I watched that tournament,” Goal.com quoted Southgate as saying.
“How could we have confidence in Russia when we weren’t regularly beating top teams. We lost to France just before and Germany in a friendly. You can’t have genuine confidence but just hope,” he added.
The winner of the game between England and Denmark will lock horns against Italy in the finals of the Euro 2020 at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
