Arsene Wenger "convinced" England will reach Euro 2020 final and names priority

Arsene Wenger is convinced England will reach the final of the European Championships and has named the essential quality that he believes will give them the edge over Denmark.

The Three Lions secured their place in the last-four of the tournament after an easy 4-0 win over Ukraine in Rome.

Gareth Southgate's side were out of the blocks fastest and opened the scoring through Harry Kane.

Harry Maguire doubled the advantage just after half-time before Kane and Jordan Henderson sealed England's date with Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night.

England's prowess in front of goal dominated the conversation after the match, but ex-Arsenal boss Wenger was more interested in highlighting the Three Lions' mean defence.

Southgate's side have yet to concede a goal at the tournament, with Saturday's shutout with Ukraine their seventh consecutive clean sheet in all competitions.

Wenger believes that is a quality which should not be underestimated and could even prove the decisive factor in Wednesday's semi-final with Denmark.

Speaking on beIN Sports, he said: "What was important for me tonight, for them [England] was not conceding a goal.

Do you think England will beat Denmark on Wednesday? Let us know in the comments section.

"As long as you don’t concede a goal the team focuses on defending well.

"That will be an important quality to go to the final and win it."

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has kept five clean sheets at Euro 2020 – a feat not bettered by any other goalkeeper in European Championships history.

That miserliness, coupled with home advantage, is the reason Wenger thinks England will make the final next Sunday evening.

"I am convinced now they will be difficult to stop", he continued.

"They go home to London and will play the semi-final at Wembley.

"It will be difficult to stop them from going to the final."
