The second semi-final game of Euro 2020 will be played at Wembley Stadium in England, on Wednesday 7 July at 8pm BST. England take on Denmark at their home ground, which has hosted six games so far at the tournament, with a varying degree of fans allowed in to watch each game.

Wembley will host both semi-finals and the final of the tournament, and 60,000 fans will be allowed to watch each game at the stadium. With a capacity of 90,000, the permitted attendance for spectators fills two-thirds of the ground. 

England played all three of their group matches in front of a maximum 22,500 fans, which is the same amount of fans that watched Italy beat Austria 2-1 in extra-time in their last-16 game, thanks to goals from Chiesa and Pessina. 

However, in the same round England played Germany at Wembley in front of an increased 45,000 crowd. Wembley then wasn't used for the first time in the tournament during the quarter-finals, with St Petersburg, Munich, Rome, and Baku all hosting those knockout games.

Italy and Spain both played each other in the first semi-final at Wembley in front of 60,000 fans, the same amount allowed to attend England versus Denmark. Despite losing their first two group matches of the tournament, Denmark managed to progress to the last-16 and now reach the semis, beating Wales and Czech Republic on route. Meanwhile, England haven't conceded a goal so far in the tournament, beating Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany and Ukraine, while drawing with Scotland.

The winner of this semi-final will play at Wembley on Sunday 11 July, 8pm BST, against the victor from Spain and Italy.

Unfortunately, coronavirus restrictions means that fans travelling from Denmark will have to self-isolate, so therefore they won't be able to attend either the semis or the final.
