Online searches for Denmark flags surge in Scotland

Searches for Denmark flags in Scotland have risen by 300% in the past 24 hours, according to Google data.

The Danes take on England in the semi-final of Euro 2020 at Wembley tonight.

As well as flags, the data (via Daily Record) also says that searches for shirts of the national team have increased as well. The same occurred before England’s knockout games against Germany and Ukraine last week.

Of course, many Scots will be supporting Denmark tonight in the hope that arch-rivals England will be knocked out of the tournament.

The Danes are looking to progress to their first final since Euro 92 – they went on to win that tournament.

England, meanwhile, are attempting to reach their first major tournament final since winning the 1966 World Cup, 54 years ago.

The Three Lions topped Group Dm, ahead of Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland, before beating Germany and Ukraine to reach the semi-finals.

Denmark finished second in Group B by virtue of a 4-1 win over Russia on the final matchday.

They then thrashed Wales 4-0 in the last 16 stage, before a 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic sealed their place in the last four.

The Euros ultimately ended in disappointment for fans of Scotland, as Steve Clarke’s side finished bottom of the group stage.

They did draw 0-0 with England – the only team Gareth Southgate‘s side haven’t beaten in 90 minutes so far in Euro 2020 – but lost both of their other group games at Hampden Park.

And plenty of Scotland fans have been signalling their support for Denmark on social media.

However, other fans did have a slightly different outlook on the occasion:

England’s semi-final tie against Denmark takes place tonight at Wembley, with kick-off at 8pm.
