England are on track to win Uefa's 'Fair Play' award for Euro 96. The beaten champions, Denmark, head the league table, based on bookings and sendings-off received, after 28 matches of the tournament. However, second-placed England, who meet Germany in the last four tomorrow at Wembley, could move into top spot.

Gary Neville, who is suspended from the semi-final, is only England's second player to miss a game - Paul Ince is expected to return after missing the defeat of Spain on Saturday because of two yellow cards. England won the award for good behaviour on the pitch at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

FAIR-PLAY LEAGUE: 1 Denmark 8.19pts; 2 England 8.14; 3 Italy 8; 4 Netherlands 7.86; 5 Romania 7.81; 6 France 7.79; 7 Scotland 7.62; 8 Turkey 7.52; 9 Russia 7.43; 10 Portugal 7.43; 11 Croatia 7.36; 12 Germany 7.36; 13 Bulgaria 7.14; 14 Spain 7.07; 15 Czech Republic 6.86; 16 Switzerland 6.76.
