An opaque England is complicated against Denmark and the qualification will be played on the last date

Those led by Gareth Southgate equalized in their second Euro Cup match.

England still cannot shine in this Euro Cup and only manages to draw against Denmark. The star team is going through a difficult tournament, where, despite its undefeated record and its four points in two games, it is far from achieving the performance expected by the level of its squad.

The first part highlighted England’s fears. Far from careful football, the most expensive team in this Euro Cup, played with its pressure and its nervousness, once again displaying an image very far from what was expected. Even the goal scored by Kane, after a superb play from Walker, did not change the situation. Denmark, in fact, grew up being at the bottom of the scoreboard.

The Danish style, orderly and very dedicated, contrasted with a pale England, without precision or control. Kane isolated, Foden contained and without spark. Bellingham is very far from the version he shows at Real Madrid, while Alexander Arnold declined due to a position that did not favor him. The big stars didn’t appear in this first half and they ended up paying the price. In the 34th minute, Morten Hjulmand surprised the defense with a shot from outside the box and equalized the score.

A hard blow which was felt by the lion squad, who remained asleep on the pitch at Deutsche Bank Park. Despite isolated attempts by its wingers, the British team displayed a very stingy image, particularly in terms of performance. Without ideas, the feeling was that even Denmark might sometimes be closer to tipping the scales. In the final minutes, for example, the Nordics’ approaches were much more concise than those led by Southgate.

But everything ended evenly. England reach four points and remain undisputed leaders, but with more negative feelings than positive and without a place in the second round assured. Denmark, for their part, achieves their second consecutive draw and will risk their lives against Serbia, who have also equalized their two matches. Even Slovenia, with a single unit, can mathematically progress. Nothing is defined in Group C of the most important national tournament on the Old Continent.
