Gareth Southgate’s men will be riding a wave of confidence after trouncing Ukraine 4-0 in the last round, while Denmark saw off the Czech Republic to advance to the last four.

So far, England have played all five of their matches at this tournament in their white home shirt, but will that change when they come up against the Danes?

We’ve got all the information you need to know on both teams’ sartorial choices below…

What colour kit will England be wearing against Denmark?

England will be wearing their white home shirt when they face Denmark on Wednesday evening.

The Three Lions have worn the Nike-made kit in each of their first five matches at Euro 2020, and are still yet to concede a goal while wearing it at the tournament.

As they did against Ukraine on Saturday, they are expected to pair the shirt with their navy blue alternate shorts.

Denmark’s home shirt has white sleeves, while their away number is entirely white. As such, they are expected to line up in their third kit, which is completely red.

What are the omens like for England’s choice of strip?

Whisper it, but they’re pretty good.

So far at Euro 2020, England have only worn their home kit, and they look set to do so again on Wednesday.

The only time that the Three Lions have won a major tournament was, of course, the 1966 World Cup, and in that tournament they wore white in every single match apart from the final.

Interestingly, England chose to wear their alternate blue shorts in the semi-final against Portugal 55 years ago, just as Gareth Southgate’s men will this time around.

Are we clutching at straws here? Just a tad, but with a place in the final at stake, we’ll take all the positive omens we can get right now.
