History beckons for England who can reach the European Championship final for the first time by beating 1992 champions Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Anticipation is building steadily and should be at fever pitch when the teams walk on to the field later for the Euro 2020 semi-final as Gareth Southgate’s side look to tread where no England team have before.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at the best pictures in the hours before kick-off:
