The Three Lions picked up a stalemate in the Nations League encounter against Denmark.
England were held to a goalless draw in the matchday 2 of the Nations League against Denmark.
Garey Southgate’s men looked apathetic throughout the game as they couldn’t create any clear cut chance.
On the other hand, Denmark looked threatening as they came close to find the nets on multiple occasions in the first half. Kasper Dolberg’s effort just flew over the crossbar while Martin Braithwaite’s shot was inches away from the post. Moreover, Christain Eriksen could have fired his side home but he squandered his chance in the second half.
Elsewhere, the Three Lions’ best chance came in the second half when Harry Kane found himself at the end of his former team-mate Keiran Trippier’s cross. But the angle proved too difficult for Spurs striker.
Despite the result, Southgate handed debuts for Kalvin Phillips, Conor Coady, Jack Grealish and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, with the latter two coming as substitutes.
Leeds midfielder Phillips hasn’t had the best of his debut as he was called out in the second half.
Grealish could be relishing after earning his first senior cap with his national team. The 24-year-old had an impressive season with Aston Villa, eventually bailing out his side from relegation.
Southgate hasn’t had many options in the attack following the exclusions of Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden for breaching the COVID-19 protocols.
England perhaps got lucky in the previous encounter against Iceland but couldn’t create any impact against Denmark.
