FT: England 0-1 Denmark. Christian Eriksen is the match winner, but it is Harry Maguire who will grab the headlines for his first-half red card. This was not in the England progression script. Thanks for joining us. Goodnight.
Long ball to the back post, Coady gets up, heads back across goal, but it is cleared.
Three added minutes at the end of this.
Late change for the Danes, with Mathias Jensen of Brentford coming on for Poulsen.
- Yellow cardKalvin PhillipsEngland
Another yellow card for afters, this time to Phillips.
Does seem strange that when chasing the game Grealish has remained on the bench.
- Yellow cardJordan HendersonEngland
Henderson goes into the book for some backchat to the referee.
England conceding plenty of free-kicks at the moment, showing their frustration.
SAVE! Powerful effort from James, but Schmeichel tips it over the top. May have been going over anyway.
Kane is fouled by Delaney right on the edge of the penalty area. Who will take it?
- OffDeclan RiceEngland
- OnJordan HendersonEngland
Another change for England here, with Jordan Henderson on for Rice.
- OffMartin BraithwaiteDenmark
- OnJannik VestergaardDenmark
In response, there is a defensive change for Denmark, with Southampton's Jannik Vestergaard on for Braithwaite
- OffMason MountEngland
- OnJadon SanchoEngland
Attacking change from Southgate with Jadon Sancho and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on for Rashford and Mount.
Denmark just happy to keep the ball here and frustrate the home side.
Changes are afoot for England.
Really is a super stop.
CHANCE! Cross into the middle catches Walker on his heels, Daniel Wass darts across, has a clean header at goal, but cannot hit the target.
WHAT A SAVE! Brilliant from Schmeichel to deny Mount from point-blank range. Corner comes is, Rice heads the ball back into the middle, Mount is there, heads for the top corner, but Schmeichel springs across to claw the ball out.
He is the change who could really make a difference...
Great take from James on his chest, he cuts onto his left foot, but fires straight at Schmeichel.
Rice makes the interception, a quick break appears to be on, but the pass is poor.
Kane cannot get anywhere near the ball at the moment. He needs some service.
If it stays like this Denmark go above England in the group. England showing very little to suggest that won't happen.
England need changes here, fast. Time for Southgate to show something.
Sisto is the target this time, but that is also too long. The 10 men are struggling here.
Long ball up to Poulsen is too high for him and he can only flick the header into the arms of Pickford.
Eriksen really dictating things from midfield here.
Eriksen lets fly from distance, but the is always heading over the top.
- 2nd Half
KICK OFF! We are back under way here. There are changes, but for Denmark with Jorgensen and Maehle coming on, replacing Skov and Christensen, who was on a booking.
Not in the script.
- End of 1st Half
HT: England 0-1 Denmark. A bit of a mess for England, with Harry Maguire sent off shortly before Kyle Walker conceded a poor penalty from the hosts' point of view, which was dispatched by Christian Eriksen. Gareth Southgate has quite the teamtalk ahead of him.
Both his club and country managers will not be happy with Hojbjerg as he fouls Kane, to anger a watching Jose Mourinho, before picking up a booking for his late challenge which means he is suspended for Denmark's next Nations League match.
Three minutes of added time here at the end of a frantic first half.
Denmark enjoying all the ball at the end of the half. England need a regroup at half time.
Another superb cross from James, deep on the right, but Rashford and Kane are too far away from it. It's a wonderful cross, and seemed to catch his team-mates by surprise.
Will Manchester United give him one?
- Yellow cardAndreas ChristensenDenmark
Late challenge from Eriksen earns him another yellow card. The Spanish referee has been very busy here.
- OffKasper DolbergDenmark
- OnPione SistoDenmark
Change for Denamrk too, with the injured Dolbery replaced by Pione Sisto.
- OffAinsley Maitland-NilesEngland
- OnTyrone MingsEngland
Change for England, and it is a tactical one with Tyrone Mings on for Maitland-Niles.
A horrendous five minutes for England. Maguire had only just got off the pitch when Coady missed a header, Jordan Pickford came out and got nowhere, Kyle Walker tried to clear but caught Delaney to concede a penalty. It was very, very generous, but the defending was all over the place.
- Goal by penaltyChristian EriksenDenmark
GGGGGOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! England 0-1 Denmark. Eriksen steps up to convert from 12 yards.
PENALTY TO DENMARK! Did not seem to be much in that as Delaney earns the visitors a penalty. A mess defensively from England.
Footballers are human beings, and Maguire is clearly suffering. Needs a sustained period away from football.
- Red cardHarry MaguireEngland
RED CARD!!! Oh my word! What a awful time Harry Maguire is having as he earns his second yellow card and an early bath! Another wild lunge.
Lovely pass over the top from Declan Rice, Mount is in, he squares for Kane, but the Spurs hitman's touch lets him down at the crucial moment and he cannot get the shot away.
A nice story in these dark times.
Poor from the former Spurs man, as Kane heads clear at the near post.
James concedes a free-kick in a dangerous position. Eriksen to whip it in.
Another cross comes in from the England right, but Kane and Maitland-Niles are not alert and the danger passes once more.
James with the volleyed cross, but it is easily cleared.
England not really at the races so far. They are lacking any real dynamism.
Eriksen carries the ball a long way, unchallenged, lets fly for goal, but that is always heading over the top.
Sir Marcus Rashford lines up a dipper from distance, but that is straight at Kasper Schmeichel.
It really was.
Great work from Mason Mount to get to the byline, but he delays too long while trying to get the cross into the middle and the danger passes.
England finally on the attack, but Reece James cannot get the cross into the middle.
All the good play here is coming from the visitors. Eriksen with the corner on the right, it's a clever one, low to Kasper Dolberg, who spins around the back of the defence, but his low effort rolls a yard wide.
Dangerous play from Denmark, as Poulsen feeds the ball across, but Coady does well to read the play and make the interception.
- Yellow cardHarry MaguireEngland
Not a nice looking challenge from Maguire on Yussuf Poulsen earns him a very early yellow card. Looks nastier with every viewing.
Coady gets away with a bit of slack passing at the back.
Kane finds himself on the ball early here, but his shot from distance is blocked.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! The hosts, in their change kit of all blue, get the match up and running.
So here we go. England have won 20 of their last 21 competitive home internationals (L1) with their only defeat in that run coming at Wembley against Spain in a Nations League game in September 2018. As long as it is better than the reverse fixture between these two a month ago, we will be fine. Anthem time!
We all know who the Danish dangerman will be!
This is Conor Coady's world. We are just living in it.
HEAD TO HEAD: England have only lost one of their nine previous competitive meetings with Denmark (W5 D3), a 0-1 defeat in a qualifying for Euro 1984 under Bobby Robson. Denmark have lost six of their eight previous away games against England (W2), with this their first such visit since a March 2014 friendly, a 1-0 England win.
Plenty of famous faces in the Denmark side, with Leicester's Kasper Schmeichel in goal, Chelsea's Andreas Christensen in defence, Inter Milan's Christian Eriksen and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in midfield, and Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite up front.
KANE STARTS, DEBUTS FOR JAMES AND MAITLAND-NILES: It seems Jose Mourinho has met his match in Gareth Southgate, with the England boss standing firm and picking Harry Kane, against Mourinho's wishes. In all, Southgate has made five changes from the victory over Belgium, two enforced with Eric Dier and Kieran Trippier unavailable, replaced by Conor Coady and debutant Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Elsewhere, another player making his first senior England start - Reece James - replaces Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kalvin Phillips is in for Jordan Henderson. Jack Grealish remains on the bench.
