England XI vs Denmark: Starting lineup, latest team news, squad, injury updates for Euros semi-final today

England have thrown Bukayo Saka back into the starting lineup as Gareth Southgate plots victory over Denmark for a place in the Euro 2020 final against Italy.

Saka was a star performer for the historic victory over Germany in the last-16 stage, only to pick up an injury in training to rule him out of the 4-0 thumping of Ukraine in the quarter-finals.

Jadon Sancho impressed in Saka’s place in Rome, but the versatile Arsenal youngster has been drafted back in to help combat Denmark’s wing-backs.

England, though, will stick with a back four having reverted back from the three-man defence for the win over Ukraine.

Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips both came through the quarter-final without picking up the bookings that would have seen them suspended, meaning Jordan Henderson again has to be satisfied with a place on the bench, despite his goalscoring cameo in Rome.

Here is how we England will line up against Denmark at Wembley...

Suspension list

England have no suspensions to contend with and with yellow cards wiped after the quarter-final stage, nobody runs the risk of missing the final, were they to advance that far.
