6:31 pm
by thursday morning at most places look bright, clear spells, a few misty patches and temperatures around io—ilith overnight so thursday will be similar to today, some sunshine, probably more than today across much of england and wales and fewer showers, one or two bubbling up fewer showers, one or two bubbling up in the afternoon, if you do catch one it could be heavy with hail and thunder but they will be hit and miss, cloudierforthe thunder but they will be hit and miss, cloudierfor the north west thunder but they will be hit and miss, cloudier for the north west of scotland and northern ireland, with temperatures of 15—23 on thursday. low pressure not far away as we look to the end of the week but a small ridge of high pressure tries to build in on friday so it will be another day of sunshine and showers, most of those showers across parts of eastern england, perhaps scotland, some drier weather between and a few showers in the south—west later on, the temperatures typical for the time of year, between 16 and

6:34 pm
are ingrained on the england identity. heart break every single time. but this england team over the past three weeks, they have broken the mould, they have rewritten history as they have got along, winning against germany and the five clean sheets in a row and they will look to do it again this evening. kick off in the next 90 minutes. we are going to tell you later in the programme why those players are not going to underestimate the threat of denmark. and they have their own particularly emotional story. but there's a party right here on wembley way. the gates have been open for the past hour or so, 20,000 through the group stages. 40,000 for that win against germany. 60,000 now for the semi finals as it will be for the semi finals as it will be for the semi finals as it will be for the final on sunday. and you can really tell the difference. let's head straight to pitch aside now becausejohn

6:36 pm
process knocked out germany as well. then can the quarterfinal against ukraine, scoring owes four goals and emphatic when in the first on the and could have scored four goals in and could have scored four goals in a knockout match in a major tournament since they left of the world cup back in 1966. gareth southgate knows, his quad nose, players know they have to win this match tonight if they are to continue the journey. i5 match tonight if they are to continue the journey. continue the “ourney. is not about what it is continue the 'ourney. is not about what it is for— continue the journey. is not about what it is for me, _ continue the journey. is not about what it is for me, it's _ continue the journey. is not about what it is for me, it's about - continue the journey. is not about what it is for me, it's about what l what it is for me, it's about what it is for— what it is for me, it's about what it is for the — what it is for me, it's about what it is for the players and all of the staff _ it is for the players and all of the staff and — it is for the players and all of the staff. and for our country. we don't have _ staff. and for our country. we don't have as _ staff. and for our country. we don't have as good — staff. and for our country. we don't have as good a football history as we like _ have as good a football history as we like to— have as good a football history as we like to believe sometimes and these _ we like to believe sometimes and these players are making massive strides. _ these players are making massive strides, but you can never determine interments _ strides, but you can never determine interments how things are going to play out _ interments how things are going to play out when you get to the latter stages, _ play out when you get to the latter stages, you recognise that these the moments _ stages, you recognise that these the moments you have to capitalise on. this team _ moments you have to capitalise on. this team now have the experience of

but it was not a brilliant group stage for denmark. the only qualified with a beat russia in their final group qualified with a beat russia in theirfinal group match, finished their final group match, finished second theirfinal group match, finished second behind belgium withjust three points. i don't think that tells the whole story in the produce that brilliant victory and came through the heat to knock out the czech republic. they have beaten england and that came in the nations league last year. very capable side and won all three of the matches so far. that includes await austria as well. of course the dennis goalkeeper won the fa cup here with leicester city so they won't be overruled by this occasion and it's got shades of that 1992 victory at the european championship, i was speaking to the former danish international was playing for liverpool when denmark won that trophy back in 1982 and he tells me just what it meant for the nation to win this tournament. the just what it meant for the nation to win this tournament.— just what it meant for the nation to win this tournament. the further we not and
