Denmark 1-1 England Player ratings: Sloppy Three Lions held in frustrating draw

Welcome to Denmark 1-1 England: Player ratings as the Three Lions are held in a frustrating draw at Euro 2024!

England were held to a 1-1 draw by a spirited Denmark at the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt on Thursday in the UEFA Euro 2024. Harry Kane’s 18th-minute goal was canceled out by Morten Hjulmand with a long-range strike as the Three Lions missed a chance to secure a spot in the round of 16.

The Danes finished as the more dangerous side with seven shots on target from 16 attempts and 51% possession, but their failure to win means they have only two points after two group matches. Their final match of the first round is against Serbia on Tuesday, whereas England play Slovenia.

Kasper Schmeichel – 6.5/10: England had only three shots on target but Schmeichel had to remain on his toes as they probed Denmark’s defense

Defenders

Joachim Andersen – 6.5/10: His aerial prowess was second to none as Andersen won all five of his duels, but was caught in possession for England’s goal by the vigilant Walker

Jannik Vestergaard – 7/10: The Leicester City man was a reliable figure at the back for the Danes

Andreas Christensen – 6/10: A rather quiet game from Christensen, who although missed a great chance to score in the 85th minute

Joakim Maehle – 7.5/10: Coming in for Bah, Maehle laid two key passes and five crosses to make a telling impact going forward, while he kept biting at the heels of English players for possession. Competing in 12 ground duels, Maehle won five, and made three tackles too

Morten Hjulmand – 8/10: He brought Denmark back into the game with a stunning long-range strike

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 8.5/10: Denmark’s single biggest threat, Hojbjerg had four good attempts on target; too bad none of them found the back of the net

Victor Kristiansen – 7/10: He found Hjulmand with a lot of space and squared the ball to him to score Denmark’s equalizer

Cristian Eriksen – 7.5/10: No goals today, but Eriksen was still a key figure for Denmark, making four key passes and five crosses, as well as winning five ground duels

Jordan Pickford – 7/10: With six saves, the stats speak for themselves, but Pickford stood no chance for Hjulman’s emphatic strike

Defenders

Kyle Walker (Getty Images)

Kyle Walker – 5/10: He drove forward a lot but couldn’t create as much impact as he’d have liked

John Stones – 6/10: Stones had little to do so looked to get his team forward with a handful of long balls

Marc Guehi – 7.5/10: A solid showing from the centre-back who guarded the England goal with authority. He made three clearances and two interceptions in the game, while blocking one shot too

Kieran Trippier – 6.5/10: The Newcastle United star didn’t allow Denmark to create much from his side of the pitch

Midfielders

Declan Rice (Getty Images)

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6/10: The Liverpool ace was more active than his last game, creating chances and pushing his side forward with inviting long balls

Declan Rice – 7/10: His passing range was top notch and played an important role in breaking down Denmark’s movements too

Forwards

Jude Bellingham (Getty Images)

Bukayo Saka – 6/10: His shooting boots went missing today, as all three of Saka’s efforts were off-target, but he was still vital to England’s attacking plays, as the Arsenal star laid two key passes and made two crosses while completing 86% of his passes.

Jude Bellingham – 6/10: Scorer of England’s winner against Serbia, Bellingham started the match brightly before fading off

Phil Foden – 7.5/10: No goals or assists once again today but Foden was still a menace with his precocious dribbling skills while also making some excellent ball-recoveries.

Harry Kane – 8.5/10: The Bayern Munich ace put England in front by taking his chance well, thereby opening his account at Euro 2024 too.
