Chelsea star Andreas Christensen claims England are 'not much better' than Denmark ahead of crunch Euro 2020 semi-final

CHELSEA defender Andreas Christensen believes England are 'not much better' than Denmark ahead of their Euro 2020 semi-final.

The 25-year-old is set to start for the Danes and reckons his country have got a great chance of reaching their first European final in 29 years.

Christensen told the press on Monday: "I feel like we have the qualities to play against everyone.

"As a team, I would not say they are that much better."

One of Denmark's biggest challenges will be stopping England skipper Harry Kane, who's scored FOURTEEN goals against Danish stopper Kasper Schmeichel during his career.

The Tottenham striker's form has improved recently, scoring three in his last two at the Euros.

Christensen added: "We know his qualities and everyone has an idea of what we can do to stop him.

"Pierre-Emile [Hojbjerg] also knows him and it may be that he can share some things.

"All players have their habits and we must take advantage of them. He is good with his feet and he is one of the best finishers in football.

"I react a lot on instinct. He is very big, so it is hard to get into his body, but he also has great qualities with his feet, so you should not get too close either."

And Christensen, who hit the headlines with a thunderous strike against Russia in their group clash, isn't concerned about playing in front of 60,000 Englishmen.

Most supporters at Wembley on Wednesday evening will be backing England due to Covid-19 restrictions, with only a handful of Denmark fans expected to attend.

The Chelsea defender admitted: "We’re going to be outnumbered, but we are happy and we try to be as calm as we can.

"We have shown that we have the quality to play against the best."
