Denmark v England: 16/5 Bellingham to bag for Three Lions again

Gareth Southgate can lead England to two wins from two

Paul Higham is backing England to make it two wins out of two by beating Denmark on Thursday, with Jude Bellingham set to star and a nice side bet on corners.

England Superboost

Don't fix what isn't broken they say, so Betfair are going again with the exact same Superboost selection in Denmark v England.

You can back Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham each to be fouled 1 or more times vs Denmark at 1/12.00, Superboosted up from 1/21.50!

The same selection won at a canter on MD1 vs Serbia, with Kane winning his first foul in the 55th minute to add to a couple that Bellingham had already won in the first half.

Indeed, Kane (6) and Bellingham (4) were fouled 10 times combined in the opening game, and will no doubt be targeted once again.

Heading into the Serbia match, the duo had been fouled 55 times between them in their last 15 England appearances, but their average has now risen to over 4 fouls won per game across their last 16 international caps.

Back the Superboost here!

So a rare opening Euros win for England still hasn't gone down too well but three points and a clean sheet are not to be sniffed at in this tournament - and it will be a similar test when they face Denmark on Thursday.

You couldn't help but smile at Christian Eriksen scoring given what he went through in the last Euros, and the Danes were similar to England as they were excellent in the first half but strugged in the second as Slovenia got a draw.

That leaves Gareth Southgate's men firmly in the driving seat in Group C despite the doom and gloom merchants - and they at least had a good defensive workout in restricting a talented Serbian attack to 0.2 xG on just one shot on target.

I think Serbia have better technical quality up front, but Denmark work harder and will defend better. Still, England are right to be 13/20 favourites for the match given their quality.

Denmark are 5/16.00 shots but certainly won't feel like that big of an outsider, and although not ideal they'd probably take a draw, priced up at 11/43.75, against one of the tournament favourites.

This could be another cagey one, and there's not usually more than a goal between these teams, but Denmark are under much more pressure after their opener and that will play right into England's hands.

An England win to nil is tempting but tagging on under 3.5 gives us a bit more wiggle room and still at a decent price.

Back Bellingham to bag again

Could we get repeat performances from Eriksen and Jude Bellingham? England's main man is 16/54.20 to score again and he's certainly got the look of someone who will dominate the headlines thoughout this tournament.

Eriksen is 6/17.00 to score again and it definitely looks like the plan is to get him the ball in dangerous advanced areas. It's a lot to ask for him to score again though so an Eriksen shot on target at 6/42.50 could be the safer option.

Harry Kane's the other obvious choice at 5/42.25 anytime goalscorer, after coming so close to opening his account against Serbia on Sunday.

Away from player props, corners could be a good route in for us on this game, and I like the look of the 9/43.25 on offer for Denmark to have the most corners in the match.

The Danes led qualifying in terms of corners, and also had nine against Slovenia on Sunday, while England managed just just one to Serbia's two in their first game.
