How Wales could line up against Denmark

Sports Mole looks at how Wales could line up against Denmark for Saturday's Euro 2020 last-16 showdown.

Rob Page is expected to revert back to the same side that started against Switzerland and Turkey for Wales's Euro 2020 last-16 tie with Denmark.

The Dragons tweaked formation and brought in some fresh faces for Sunday's clash with Italy, which ended in defeat but did not stop them finishing second in Group A.

Wales seem certain to go back to a four-man defence in Amsterdam on Saturday, which would comprise Connor Roberts, Chris Mepham, Joe Rodon and Ben Davies.

Aaron Ramsey, Gareth Bale, Daniel James and Joe Allen are sure-fire picks in midfield, as is Kieffer Moore up top, though Joe Morrell's place may be in doubt.

Page has limited options in that area of the pitch, however, as Ethan Ampadu was sent off against Italy and will therefore serve a suspension for this match.

In goal, meanwhile, Danny Ward has enjoyed a good tournament and there is next to no chance of previous first-choice keeper Wayne Hennessey coming into the side at this point.

Wales have had a combined 97 shot attempts at Euro 2016 and Euro 2020, with 49 of those coming from Bale (33) and Ramsey (16), equating to just over half of their total efforts.

Wales possible starting lineup: Ward; Roberts, Mepham, Rodon, Davies; James, Ramsey, Allen, Morrell, Bale; Moore
