DEN Vs ENG Dream 11 prediction: Team Denmark Vs England. Familiar issues entrap England with the side struggling to break down Iceland.
Getting handed over favourable groups in their last tournaments has done little to disguise the fact that this English side is far from the finished product. While their finishes in the competitions might argue else while, the team’s dilemmas against Iceland were emotive of the team’s ever increasing predicaments.
Taking on a way inferior Iceland side, England were made to profusely sweat it out for the three points on the day. It wasn’t till a late penalty was awarded to the club that the team managed to open the scoring immediately following which a penalty save ensured they managed to shut down the tie at 1-0.
If that laggard display was a throbbing headache, the antic taking place elsewhere in the squad only elevate England’s problems. Walker was handed a red card on the day following which both Foden and Greenwood were ruled out from today’s impending sortie after having flouted Coronavirus protocols in place.
The shambolic set of events are vindictive of the culture ingrained in this England side. Apart from abject footballing performances, the team fails to understand of the gravity of the situation it finds itself in, problems which see the side engulfed in a ruckus.
In the midst of this squabble, the club go tottering to take on Denmark today. Defeated 2-0 by Belgium, the Danes are striving to overturn that result to register their first points on the board come today.
And while they’ll give England a tough fight as well, the visiting team’s attacking mettle should guide it to a second win on the bounce.

Dream 11 Picks
Denmark might have let in two goals against Denmark but had it not been for Kasper Schmeichel, that number could have easily been more. He kept Belgium out for a good 76 minutes to see us hammer him down in our side for this one.
Iceland gave England plenty to think about defensively the last time around. Had it not been for a late penalty save, England would have failed to implement the cleansheet they scrambled their way to, set of events vindictive of their defensive troubles.
However, the cleansheet they kept at the end of the day sees us repose faith in the side for the impending clash. The Liverpool duo of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez will both be instilled in our setup with the two having an attacking inclination as well with Tyrone Mings completing the setup from the side.
Too much has been made of Jadon Sancho only for him to let down his believers when it matters the most. He was abysmal the last time around as well but Denmark’s paper thin defence and Sancho’s ability to rattle such sides sees us opt for him.
Declan Rice played a crucial role for England in their 1-0 win over Iceland. His slew of tackles and blocks helped screen the side’s defence and ensure the side kept a cleansheet despite being down to 10 men.
Denmark will on the other hand see us opt for an entire triad of players. We begin with Christian Eriksen, someone who will be truning to today’s clash to show everyone he’s still got it after been found wanting across the course of the last year.
Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg is well acclimatised with his English side owing to his time in the Premier League to see him slot his way into our setup as well along with Thomas Delaney.
Raheem Sterling’s penalty ended up being the decisive goal for England against Iceland. Only his third successful penalty for the side, he makes for a must have pick for us today along with striker Harry Kane who has the 32 goals for his country.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kane subliminal record for England sees him be our captain while Sterling is the vice-captain.
