What the coaches say

Kasper Hjulmand, Denmark coach: "The aim is to be successful in different pressing lines; the high press but also lower. It's important that we find the right times to do it. [England] like to take control of matches – they like to attack and try to score the next goal at all times. That leaves some space as well. We also want to take charge of the game so it will be a very interesting match."

Gareth Southgate, England manager: "We had probably the most creative players in English football on the pitch [in Saturday's 1-0 win against Iceland] but everybody has to understand that players, whether they’ve had a two-week break or they’re into their pre-season period, that sharpness in the final third is going to be the last bit to come, so against a really stubborn, packed defence it’s a difficult challenge."
