England captain Harry Kane has issued a stern warning to Denmark that the Three Lions can’t be prevented from winning today’s Euro 2020 semi-final game at Wembley.
Kane, who started the tournament slowly after failing to score in the group stages, has, however, netted three goals in two knockout stage matches, scoring against Germany and twice against Ukraine.
Asked about his form, Kane said: “To be honest, probably not. My game understanding, in terms of what I need to do to not just help myself but also the team, is probably at its best in my career so far.
“It is not a problem. If you try to stop me that’s OK because we have got other players who are just as good, who are going to cause problems. It is not the case where you stop me and you stop us as a team. We have plenty of threats, plenty of options, plenty of different ways of playing.
“From my point of view it is just assessing that on the pitch, seeing what formation they are playing and setting up, and just trying to adapt my game to that. I feel like when I’m playing at my best I can score goals or provide assists against anyone.”

However, it will be worth noting that Denmark defeated England in 3 of their last 4 visits to the country, losing the other.
Nevertheless, England had an easy route in this edition’s Euro, a German team in decline probably the best opponent they faced so far but take nothing away from this young team that kept a clean sheet for a 5th consecutive match in the competition after thumping Ukraine 4-0 in the quarter-final.
The Three Lions have been goal shy in the tournament this far, but the dividends are paid at Rome on the weekend with Harry Kane striking twice along with Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson to complete the scoreline.
The Danes made a slow start to the tournament after losing star player Christian Eriksen and only made it to the knockouts on the back of a solitary win against Russia. Since then, their performances have been nothing less than spectacular to see off Wales 4-0 and a resilient Czech Republic 2-1 in the quarter-finals.
Seven different players have contributed to Denmark’s 11 goals in the tournament, which means they are a threat from every part of the pitch and essentially not reliant on particular players.
