England pick up a point in disappointing display against Denmark

England could only manage a 1-1 draw with Denmark in a below-par display in their second European Championship encounter.

Serbia's late equaliser against Slovenia in the early kick-off meant the Euro 2020 runners-up knew a win would see them through to the round of 16 as Group C winners.

But Morten Hjulmand's thumping strike cancelled out Harry Kane's first group-stage goal since 2018 as England fumbled their chance at early progress in Frankfurt on Thursday.

This was not a display to strike fear into Europe's elite, with Southgate's selection and the underwhelming all-round team performance sure to be pored over in minute detail before facing Slovenia.

England started with the same team that beat Serbia and, yet again, took an early lead, this time through skipper Kane after Kyle Walker caught Victor Kristiansen napping.

But, as in Gelsenkirchen, they wobbled after going ahead and Hjulmand's belting 30-yard shot in off the foot of a post saw their Euro 2020 semi-final opponents level.

Both sides had chances to win it, with Phil Foden hitting a post before being withdrawn as part of a bold triple substitution that failed to spark a flat England performance.
