Key Players

Analysis

The runner-up in Group A, Wales have been lucky enough to make it to the knockout stage having won only one match in their group stage games. Ryan Giggs’s men only managed to win against Turkey in which an injury time goal from Connor Roberts gave Wales a 2-0 victory over Burak Yilmaz and company.

It has been a similar story for Denmark in the Group B. However, the absence of their star midfielder Christian Eriksen and a tight competition in the group troubled the side in the group stage. Denmark bounced back strongly and dominated their last league game against Russia, which saw four different Danish players on the scoresheet. Denmark won the game 4-1 against Russia to confirm their berth in the Round of 16. The best captain and vice-captain choices for this match will be Gareth Bale, Yussuf Poulsen, Ramsey, Wilson/ Aaron Ramsey, Daniel James, Braithwaite, Poulsen and Damsgaard .
