A supercomputer has predicted England will make it to the Euro 2020 final - but lose to Italy at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate's side will take on Denmark in a huge semi-final clash on Wednesday after defeating Ukraine 4-0.

Should they run out winners over the Danes, it'll be one of Spain or Italy waiting in the final on Sunday evening.

Stats Perform have given Italy a 39.8% chance of winning the tournament after a strong showing this summer.

Roberto Mancini's side won their group at a canter and looked comfortable in their 2-1 win over Belgium last time out.

England are second favourites to win the tournament with 29.4% and they've still not conceded a goal.

The final being on their home turf of Wembley also points to a clear advantage over any potential opponent.

Spain have a 22.4% after taking their time to hit top form.

Two draws in their opening two games had many wondering if Luis Enrique's side could be heading for an early exit.

But they put five past Slovakia and Croatia before knocking out Switzerland in a tense penalty shootout.

Denmark are currently huge outsiders with an 8.4% shot despite looking comfortable against Wales and the Czech Republic.

Southgate is aware of the test Denmark will offer and he called them a 'powerful force' after the Ukraine game.

He said per The Independent: "We talk about perspective in sport but we rarely have it. This was a moment that brought it home for all of us. I can also imagine what it has done for the Danish team, their bond.

"We are talking about the things we have been through but what they went through that day - the way their captain was and the way the group was - and how that would have connected with their supporters, that's pretty powerful.

"They are riding a wave of emotion for certain and that's a powerful force that's coming to Wembley. Those things definitely have an impact on your thinking."

He added: "We've knocked off so many hoodoos or perceived barriers already and I feel like this group of players will feel this is just the next challenge.

"I guess the interesting part for us is we won't feel totally satisfied if it's just a semi-final for us, whereas maybe three years ago - although there was massive disappointment after the semi-final - there was a feeling we'd come a long way.

"Now we've replicated what we did there, but that won't be enough to fulfil the group. That's a positive sign.

"Our group are ready to get to the next step - they are excited by that challenge."
