And then there were four.

Having seen 20 teams fall, Euro 2020 reaches the semi-final stage beginning on Tuesday, as Wembley now becomes the focus for the final five days of the tournament.

Much like it did in 2018, football fever has again gripped the nation, with England in their second successive major tournament semi-final on the bounce.

But this time, England are on home turf under the Wembley Arch.

For football to indeed come home, the Three Lions face a rather sterner test than the limp Ukrainians they took apart in Rome on Saturday night.  The hosts however, are still regarded as strong favourites to reach their first final in 55 years, at 3/4 with SBK and 20/27 with MansionBet.

But Denmark cannot be sold short at their chances of reaching the final.

Alongside England, the Danes are the team who perhaps hold the biggest momentum going into the last four, also riding a wave of emotion. Their 9/2 price with Betfair, Betfred, PaddyPower and UniBet, looks surprisingly long, but therefore appealing.

Extra time on Wednesday night is a more than likely scenario also, leaving the draw after 90 mins at 11/4 with SpreadEx, a more than accommodating punt.

England are also yet to concede a goal at the tournament in five games, but for Denmark to finally break through are 8/11, or to notch twice at 4/1, both with SkyBet.

In Tuesday’s first semi-final, the ever-impressive Italy are the bookies’ favourites to make Sunday’s final, but still at a very decent 6/4 with Bet365, Betfair and MansionBet.

Could however, Leonardo Spinazzola’s absence greatly dent the Azzurri’s chances?

Their opponents Spain have rediscovered their goalscoring touch as the Euros have rolled on, but La Roja still lack a clinical frontman.  That factor is greatly influencing Spain’s chances in the markets, but Luis Enrique’s men can still be had to win at 21/10 with 888sport and BetVictor, amongst others.

For those of you with a keen eye on the race for the Golden Boot meanwhile, five goals is the current magic total, but it is dually held by Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick, both of whose teams have been eliminated.

Having now scored in back-to-back games, Harry Kane looks to have got his mojo back, and is just two off that total, with three goals thus far.  For the England skipper to not only close the gap but to take the prize, SkyBet still have Kane at an enticing 8/1.
