All eyes are looking east as Baku is the destination for Saturday evening’s Euro 2020 quarter-final between the Czech Republic and Denmark.
☝️ What one thing should I keep an eye on?
The Denmark fairytale and the tidal wave of emotion and support both from home and across the world that has carried them this far following their frightening start to the tournament.
That is no offence to the Czechs, who were workmanlike but largely unimpressive in the group stages before showing what they are capable of against the Netherlands, but every neutral is firmly in the camp of the Danes in the hope they can deliver glory for Christian Eriksen.
🔑 Can you give me a key player from each team?
📊 Fun facts
- Either as Czech Republic or Czechoslovakia, they have met Denmark 25 times previously and been beaten on just two occasions
