Andreas Christensen has been praised by his Danish team-mate Jannick Vestergaard.

“Playing with a three is nothing new to us,” Vestergaard said. “We have also done it for some periods with the national team in the qualifications and the Nations League.

“We also do it a lot at our clubs, where Christensen has just won the Champions League in a treble chain, so it comes to us quite naturally.”

Christensen has been one of the standout defenders at Euro 2020, helping his country reach the semi-finals where they will face England on Wednesday.

“The special thing is that Christensen is so flexible that he can go up and play a midfield position where the rest of us then go down and play with a four,” Vestergaard added about the Chelsea centre-back. “It is the system in which we are trained and raised.

“It comes naturally to us, but of course, it’s Christensen’s readiness for change that makes it possible to change so fluently during the match.”
