Denmark punished for breaking Euro 2024 rules in game against England

Denmark punished for breaking Euro 2024 rules in game against England

The game finished in a 1-1 draw

Denmark has been punished for breaking a rule during their Euro 2024 game against England.

The match ended with a 1-1 draw on Thursday (20 June), marking another lacklustre performance by the national team following a narrow opening 1-0 win against Serbia in England's group C opener.

“We have had time on the training pitch and plenty of discussions with the players,” England manager Gareth Southgate said ahead of tonight's (25 June) last group game against Slovenia, having already qualified.

“Obviously whatever I say is fairly irrelevant. We have to go and produce it on the pitch.

“We’re very clear on where we need to be better. We haven’t hidden from that. I think we have a pretty open dialogue – the players, staff – and we’re all on the same page on that.”

Whilst the nation looks ahead to this evening's match, it seems that group C counterparts Denmark has been fined for an incident during their game against England.

UEFA has fined the nation 10,000 euros (£8,400) due to an abusive banner which was aimed at the footballing government.

The banner with the message 'F*** UEFA' was unveiled by fans during the game.

“We pay the fine, but the most important thing for us, and we are starting to do that now, is that we identify those who have brought in the banner, and then we will pass the bill on to them,” Danish Football Association director Erik Brøgger Rasmussen told TV 2 Sport.

“If we find them, they can pay.

“We hope that those who might bring a banner with this type of language to the stadium will think twice.”

Gallagher expected to start against Slovenia

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is expected to take the place of Trent Alexander-Arnold this evening, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

He's arguably been Chelsea's best player this season, with five goals and seven assists in 37 league games.

"I have played with him at academy level, played against him at Palace and Chelsea," Arsenal and England midfielder Declan Rice told 5Live’s Football Daily podcast.

"He is a team-mate I would love to have on my team, he works his socks off, you feel so secure and safe in there with him.

"I think he has surprised so many people this year with his ability on the ball, how he breaks forward with it, how he gets into the box, scores goals.

"I think he is a really positive player and he has come on so much over the past few years as well, you can really see that within himself how confident he is.

"Every time I get to play with Con, it hasn’t been much, I have really enjoyed it because I know him really well as a guy, I know his family really well and he is a lovely boy and it is another great chance to stamp our mark."
