The clean sheets of England
It is remarkable that so far England have not conceded a single goal in the tournament, that is, five net figures.
They didn’t start scoring too much either: two goals in all three group games. But he scored six in both playoffs, including one 2-0 in Germany… to the consternation of the ‘psychic’ elephant who predicted a German victory!
With just under two hours to go, it’s now as good a time as any to get your predictions.

“Has football ever returned home?”
England’s anthem “Football comes home” – roared by Wembley fans after the German match – doesn’t feel right for everyone.
Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel made a blatant blow with the supposedly triumphant song and said: “Have you ever been home? I don’t know, have you ever won it? ”
🗣 “What would it mean for you to let him ‘come home’ tomorrow night?”
“Have you ever been home? Have you ever won it? ”

Denmark will have to do what no team has done against England in Euro 2020 to reach the final of the tournament: scoring a goal.
The Danes bounced back from two defeats in their first matches of the tournament and will face England in the second semi-final at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, England have not lost a game or conceded a goal in Euro 2020 and will play at their national football stadium.
