Euro 2020: Three Lions to flood Wembley as England aim for first football grand final since 1966 | UK News

England fans are hours away from the team’s Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark, with 60,000 fans ready to create an electric atmosphere as they aim for their first grand final since 1966.

With the home advantage on their side, a repeat of the boisterous atmosphere inside Wembley which hosted England’s game against Germany is assured.

England are clear favorites, but Denmark – a team that won the 1992 league against all odds – appear full of belief after Christian Eriksen’s cardiac arrest in their first match.

The winner will face Italy – who beat Spain on penalties on Tuesday night

Their fans will be massively outnumbered at Wembley, however, due to COVID travel restrictions. Instead, some 6,000 banknotes were made available to Danes living in the UK.

A date with Italy on Sunday awaits the winner of the match, after beating Spain in a penalty shootout at Wembley last night.

He finished 1-1 after extra time and both sides squandered their first penalties – but a miss by Spaniard Alvaro Morata proved decisive and saw Jorginho pass the Italians.

Tens of millions of people are expected to watch tonight’s kickoff at 8 p.m. from their homes, while 50,000 pints per minute – 6.8 million in total – are expected to be ordered in pubs, according to British Beer and Pub Association.
