Czech Republic enter the Euro 2020 as number 40 in the FIFA world ranking, thus signifying the gap between these teams as Denmark come here with a ranking of number 10.
Imagine Czech Republic reaching another final at the European Championships, 25 years after last doing it. Playing a final at Wembley just like in 1996. Not even the most optimistic supporter would have placed a bet on that before the start of the Euro 2020, but nevertheless the chance exits.
Denmark were close to down and out but somehow managed to claw their way to a second place finish in their group. Momentum is strong now coming back from the brink is such a fashion. They proved how well drilled they now are by putting four past Wales in the Round of 16. It was the first time a team scored four goals in two successive matches at the European Championships.
