England won its first match of the Euros against Serbia, with a fairly timid 1 goal to Serbia's nil (that's 'timid' in Euros terms, bearing in mind that there were 9 goals scored in the first 2 matches!). However a win is the first step for England to match, or beat, it's second-place result in the last Euros.

Up against England is Denmark, which drew against Slovenia 1-1 in its first match of the Euros, and also has a track record doing well in the tournament by coming 4th in the 2020 event. As Group C teams go, England and Denmark are the two most likely to qualify for the knock-out round, and this match will dictate the order they qualify in.

So who's up to the task; will football come home or head to Scandinavia? Here's how to watch England vs Denmark online or on TV.
