England have the chance to create history by qualifying for their first final at a major tournament in 55 years when they play Denmark on Wednesday evening.

Gareth Southgate’s men are yet to concede at the Euros and will brimming with confidence after putting Ukraine to the sword in emphatic fashion last time out.

But this is England and it’s a knockout game of huge importance, so anything could happen at Wembley on Wednesday night. 

Here, Sportsmail’s experts, including columnists CHRIS SUTTON, MARTIN KEOWN and JAMIE REDKNAPP, give their predictions for the match.

Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane will have to play a big role again for England to reach the final

England are growing stronger with every game. The same could be said of Denmark, but Harry Kane has started to score and is looking sharp.

That’s bad news for the Danes. I expect a close game but am backing England to edge it, with Kane to be the difference.

I called the 4-0 correctly against Ukraine so let’s see if my latest prediction pays off, too. Maybe then I’ll allow you to call me Sorcerous Sutton…  

PREDICTION: 2-1 TO ENGLAND 

Kane is in prolific form and will be the difference against Denmark on Wednesday evening

This will be the toughest test yet for England. So much expectation, so much pressure. But England will nick it.

PREDICTION: 2-1 TO ENGLAND 

MARTIN KEOWN 

I’m backing England to bag another clean sheet and secure safe passage to the final. 

We can’t underestimate Denmark. They weren’t expected to win this tournament in 1992, after receiving a late call-up as replacements for Yugoslavia, but they did. 

Now they’ve reached the semi-finals despite going through so much in that opening game against Finland. They’re fighters, but England have what it takes to win.

PREDICTION: 2-0 TO ENGLAND 

Denmark are fighters and a very good side but England have what it takes to beat them

DOMINIC KING 

Being around the camp, you can see the confidence growing in the players with each passing day. It will be tense but nothing is going to stop England.

PREDICTION: 2-0 TO ENGLAND 

SAMI MOKBEL 

The stakes are so high, so I would say this will be the tightest of games. But England – backed by the power of Wembley – will edge it. 

PREDICTION: 1-0 TO ENGLAND 

JAMIE REDKNAPP 

England’s players have an entire nation behind them. Wednesday’s semi-final is all everyone is talking about. 

I can’t wait to see how the excitement builds if we can secure our place in this Sunday’s final. And you know what? I think we’ll make it there with a 2-1 win.

PREDICTION: 2-1 TO ENGLAND 

It’s going to be a tight game but backed by the power of Wembley, England can nick it
