Gareth Southgate’s side are in pole position in Group B after Sunday’s impressive 2-1 win over Belgium, but were held to a draw by Denmark when they met in Copenhagen in September. However, England have to juggle a number of late withdrawals with Ben Chilwell, Eric Dier and Kieran Tripper all unavailable.

Denmark beat Iceland emphatically last weekend, with former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen alongside Kasper Hjulmand, and hope to spoil England’s record of 20 wins in his last 21 competitive home matches. Follow all the actions below:

The first half is coming to an end. Maguire’s recklessness gave England a lot of work after the break. Denmark will play another 45 minutes with an extra man, and they have their noses ahead thanks to Eriksen’s penalty.

Southgate has now moved up to four backs, with Walker at left back and Mings alongside Coady. It looks like a 4-4-1 off the ball.

James sends another tempting cross into the box, but again, there’s no one to meet her. Rice then goes to the far goal and sees his shot blocked before it reaches Schmeichel.

The penalty decision was soft and Walker will rightly complain about it. But England can only really blame themselves for being in a very messy situation. Denmark look comfortable now, kicking the ball and using their man advantage.

Mings replaced Maitland-Niles, which will mean a system change. Dolberg, injured by the tackle that saw Maguire sent off, is also absent, replaced by Pione Sisto.

GOAL! England 0-1 Denmark (Eriksen)

Eriksen casually sends his penalty down the middle, Pickford diving to his left. It has been a good two minutes for Denmark and a dire period for England.

Penalty for Denmark! England’s sloppier defense as a long ball in the box causes all kinds of problems. Pickford, for some reason, is charging. Walker is deemed to have committed a foul in the box, and the referee shows the point …
