Wales vs Denmark LIVE

– Euro 2020 last 16 clash kicks off at 5pm in Amsterdam, Holland
– Wales looking to repeat their run to semi-finals at Euro 2016
– Denmark won Euros in 1992 but not got to quarter-finals since 2004
– Confirmed team news expected around 1hr 30mins before kick-off

3.25pm: The winners of this tie stand to face either the Netherlands or the Czech Republic in the quarter-finals in Baku, Azerbaijan a week today.

Denmark have got out of the group stage for the first time in 17 years and will fancy their chances against Wales.

They won the last two meetings between the countries in the UEFA Nations League in late 2018.

The absent Eriksen scored both goals in a 2-0 win in Aarhus while Nicolai Jorgensen and Martin Braithwaite netted in a 2-1 win in Cardiff, Gareth Bale scoring for the hosts.

3.15pm: How they got here…

Wales came second in Group A behind Italy after a win, a draw and a loss. Rob Page’s side defeated Turkey 2-0 after drawing 1-1 with the Swiss.

They fell 1-0 to the Italians in their final group match but that was not enough to prevent them progressing to this stage.

Denmark meanwhile went through as second in Group B behind Belgium.

Despite losing 1-0 to Finland, a match interrupted halfway through as talismanic playmaker Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest, and 2-1 to Belgium, the Danes still went through.

That was because they hammered Russia 4-1 and had a superior goal difference to both Finland and Russia, although all three nations ended up on three points.

3pm: Good afternoon and welcome to Express Sport’s live coverage of Wales vs Denmark, our first helping of Euro 2020 knockout action.

The last 16 tie gets underway in Amsterdam at 5pm – but we have plenty of build-up for you before then.

Confirmed team news is expected around an hour and a half prior to kick-off.
