What the coaches say

Gareth Southgate, England manager: "[In the 2-1 win against Belgium] every time somebody got beaten, there was another man to tidy up. We had a 20-minute period where we were getting caught by overloads and one-twos down the side but they rode through that.

"It's always difficult to know what sort of game [to expect]. We've managed the load of the group across the whole week very well, so nobody's overplayed. The beauty of the Nations League is that this is the best 16 teams in Europe - the best against the best. If we're to get to the semi-finals again, we need to win against Denmark on Wednesday."

Kasper Hjulmand, Denmark coach: "It was a close match in September. It was a bit like a pre-season game, so there will be a different dynamic this time. I think we will see a more open match. We only have one player who has played all the way through the first two matches, and that is Martin Braithwaite. The whole squad is fresh and ready, so I can field the same side that started against Iceland, but I can also change things."
