Gareth Southgate, England coach, said on Tuesday at a press conference on the eve of Wednesday’s semi-final against Denmark at Wembley that “we are very excited about the game and we know that we are going to have tremendous support from the whole country, which is a great feeling for us ”.
Southgate is optimistic about this semi-final against the Danish team, the 1992 European champions. By contrast, England have never won this title. “The players are ready. They have a lot of experience, they have been in this situation before. We have prepared calmly. We know that we are going to face a very good rival. It’s going to be a very even and exciting game, ”predicted the England coach.
Asked if the young Arsenal midfielder Bukayo Sako is recovered, Southgate confirmed that “we have all the players ready”, but wanted to clarify that, facing the last decisions, “we have to do one or two tests”.
On how England will play against Denmark, Southgate said: “Over the last three years we have been flexible in our tactics. We try to choose the right one for each opponent. Denmark has changed during the matches to gain fluidity and we have to be attentive to this in the game. Our players have experience against different systems. They know how to play against them and how to find spaces ”.
