Gary Neville names England XI for Euro 2020 semi-final

Gary Neville has named his England XI for their Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark, with one change to the side that beat Ukraine.

Gareth Southgate‘s side won 4-0 against Ukraine in the quarter-final in Rome, with Harry Kane (x2), Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson all getting on the scoresheet.

Southgate made two changes to the side that defeated Germany, with Mason Mount and Jadon Sancho replacing Kieran Trippier and Bukayo Saka.

Neville’s prediction for Denmark clash

Neville has named the inclusion of Saka as his only change for the semi-final against Denmark.

The 19-year-old was given a starting spot in England’s side as they took on the Czech Republic in their final group game, and impressed throughout.

He kept his place for the victory over Germany at Wembley – but missed out on the Ukraine tie due to injury.

Southgate has since confirmed that the Arsenal starlet will be back in contention to face Denmark.

He said: “He should be fine.

“He did declare himself available for the [Ukraine] game but we had not really had the chance to see him on the pitch and working at the level we felt would vindicate that decision.

“He will go back into full training with the group on Monday and he should be fine.”

Jadon Sancho took his place in the side for the Ukraine game, and impressed with his direct running on skill on the ball.

Before the game, Southgate explained to the BBC his reasoning behind selecting the winger: “He’s been really bright in training in the last 10 days or so.

“With changing to a back four, also we felt we had to have a right-footer on that side to be able to really stretch the game.

“Ukraine look like they’re going to be five at the back and that width is really important.”

England’s semi-final clash against Denmark will be played at Wembley on July 7, with a kick-off time of 8pm.
