Despite their recent shock 2-1 defeat to North Macedonia in World Cup qualification, Germany remain cast as somewhat of a dark horse this summer, with the squad bursting with talent in all departments.

Along with new additions to the squad such as Bayern Munich youngster Jamal Musiala, Germany boss Joachim Low has recalled the likes of Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels back into the fray, no doubt looking to introduce more of a winning mentality.

The squad’s West London contingent will also do good for building a winning mentality, with Antonio Rudiger, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz all playing a big part in Chelsea’s Champions League final win.

A comprehensive win against Denmark on Wednesday for Low’s men could put them on track for a shock win against world champions France in their opening tie of the Euros.

Denmark come into this game on the back of a sensational run of form, with Kasper Hjulmand’s men winning all three World Cup qualifiers and scoring 14 goals along the way.

Denmark beat Austria 4-0 last time out and, before that, they beat minnows Moldova 8-0.

If Hjulmand’s side bring this kind of form into the Euros, Denmark could potentially emerge as a very dangerous side.

Denmark’s squad consists of the likes of Kasper Schmeichel, Andreas Christensen, Jannik Vestergaard, Pierre-Emile Hojberg and Martin Braithwaite.
