And ahead of kick-off, Ian Wright - a fan favourite - led the way on social media as he wished England good luck, while also sending out a warning to those writing off Denmark.

Wright, alongside a video of him speaking about the threat Denmark pose, captioned his tweet: 'We have to earn the right to talk about Italy! Come on England!!!'

In the video itself, Wright warned England: 'Denmark are a very dangerous side. If people are still thinking they are going off the emotion of Christian Eriksen, then they are falling into a massive trap.

He then added: 'They have got so many ways of hurting us. Listening about people talking about Italy, we haven't earned the right to talk about Italy because we haven't got past a Denmark team that frighten me, they frighten me.' 

Gary Neville was also among those to send a word of warning to Gareth Southgate's side, urging the squad not to become known as 'nearly men' with back-to-back semi-final exits at a major tournament.

'I do have genuine confidence in this manager and players that this time a semi-final isn't the end! To win any semi-final takes a great performance. This is a really good Denmark
