Denmark given heroic send-off by chanting crowd ahead of England clash in Euro 2020 with 8,000 Danes expected at Wembley

DENMARK were given a rapturous send-off from thousands of passionate fans as they jetted to London for Wednesday's crunch semi-final clash.

The underdogs head to Wembley looking to recreate the magic of 1992 when they were crowned Euro champions against all the odds.



Kasper Hjulmand's side left their Helsingor training base on Monday where a sea of red shirts lined the streets to cheer them on.

Footage on the Dane's official Instagram video shows Hjulmand stepping out onto the balcony to a huge roar from the crowd.

Hjulmand is seen waving and blowing kisses before starting a chant.

Images then show the team including Kasper Schmeichel and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg walking through the fans towards the team bus.

Flags were waved while a number of girls played the flute before making their way to the airport.

And they will be greeted by a similar raucous reception from the 8,000 travelling Danes on arrival in London.

The Danish FA were initially given 6,500 tickets for the game but they then asked for an extra 1,500 after they were unsurprisingly snapped up rapidly.

Around 60,000 fans will be inside Wembley for the semi-final but the Danish supporters are bound to make their voices heard to encourage their side.

Although the group of stars will need little encouragement as they aim to achieve the impossible for team-mate Christian Eriksen.

The Inter Milan playmaker is home after collapsing in their Euros opener on June 12 before being resuscitated with a defibrillator.

England haven't beaten Denmark in their last two meetings, drawing 0-0 before losing 1-0 at Wembley in their Nations League clashes last year.
