Mason Mount returned to the starting lineup for England as the Three Lions defeated Ukraine 4-0 in the Euro 2020 quarterfinal clash played in Rome.

England will play Denmark in the semifinal, and Mount is set to come up against a few familiar faces. Mount will be up against Spurs robust player Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the heart of midfield and also face Chelsea teammate Andreas Christensen.

With England set to return to Wembley for this game, Mount has warned that the Danes will be coming to the Lions den.

Speaking after the victory in Rome, he said: “It is unbelievable to play at Wembley and all our group games and the Germany game were special, special games to be involved in.

“I was on the bench and now it is a semi-final at Wembley and hopefully we can get to the final. That has always been our goal from the start and has been our focus.

“It will be a special day and there will be a few more fans there as well to create the atmosphere.

“You are in the lion’s den and you have to come and perform. We are obviously going to try and give our best.”

Mount also admitted that he’s expecting a difficult game against Andreas Christensen’s side.

“We played them not long ago,” Mount continued. “We know what they’re about so every game is going to be tough.

“You’re in a semi-final so you have to bring everything. Just like they will.

“They’ll be passionate, we have to be ready for the battle. That’s what we have to do now.”
