Soccer-Denmark name unchanged side against Czech Republic for Euro quarter-final

·1-min read

BAKU (Reuters) - Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand went with a tried and tested starting lineup for Saturday's European Championship quarter-final match against the Czech Republic in Baku, naming an unchanged team from the one that beat Wales 4-0 in the last-16.

Mikkel Damsgaard will again take playmaker Christian Eriksen's role, on his own 21st birthday.

Denmark are once again expected to line up with a back-three of Andreas Christensen, Jannik Vestergaard and captain Simon Kjaer at the heart of the back line, while Joakim Maehle and Jens Stryger are on the flanks as wing backs.

The Czech Republic made one change to their lineup with Jan Boril returning at left back. Patrik Schick, who has four goals and is one shy of Cristiano Ronaldo's tally for top scorer in the tournament, will lead their attack.

TEAMS

Czech Republic: Tomas Vaclik; Vladimir Coufal, Ondrej Celustka, Jan Boril; Tomas Kalas, Tomas Holes, Tomas Soucek (captain), Antonin Barak; Lukas Masopust, Petr Sevcik, Patrik Schick

Denmark: Kasper Schmeichel; Andreas Christensen, Simon Kjaer (captain), Jannik Vestergaard; Jens Stryger Larsen, Joakim Maehle, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Thomas Delaney; Mikkel Damsgaard, Kasper Dolberg, Martin Braithwaite
