Euro 2020 enters Day Seven on Thursday as Ukraine take on North Macedonia (2pm GMT), Denmark return to the field for the first time since Saturday’s Christian Eriksen scare with a tricky tie against Belgium (5pm) before Frank de Boer’s entertaining Netherlands side take on Austria (8pm).
The Danish game promises to be hugely emotional as players and fans pay tribute to the stricken midfielder as he recovers from the cardiac arrest he suffered on the field on Saturday, with Belgium expected to kick the ball out of play on the 10-minute mark to applaud him.
Eriksen, still in hospital in Copenhagen under observation, has meanwhile agreed to be fitted with a heart monitor as his recuperation continues.
Wednesday’s action meanwhile saw more Welsh heroics as Robert Page’s men beat Turkey 2-0 in a humid Baku with goals from Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts and a starring role for Gareth Bale, who missed a penalty but was hugely influential nonetheless.
In the evening game, Italy strolled to another highly impressive 3-0 win in Rome, this time seeing off Switzerland with a brace from Manuel Locatelli and another from Ciro Immobile.
