Whilst Denmark failed to qualify for the UEFA Nations League finals after a 4-2 defeat away at Belgium in their last game, they can take a lot of heart from their performances in that competition with a 0-1 victory against England at Wembley a particular highlight. What has proven most impressive about Denmark in their recent performances over the past year or so has been their potency in front of goal, with the Danes having scored eight goals in their last four competitive games. Such cutting edge going forward is likely to overwhelm Israel, who despite being expected to put up admirable resistance should be unable to prevent a strong Denmark side acquiring the three points in Tel-Aviv.
It should be the easiest of openers but there is always room for debate and discord when Israel play, even against likely Group I whipping boys Denmark. The last six meetings have gone the way of the Three Lions by an aggregate score of 37-1, though that one scored by Davide Gualtieri in 1993 remains a matter of ignominy for Israel.
Thursday’s game ought to offer Gareth Southgate opportunities to blood some of the younger and more inexperienced players in the squad ahead of the summer’s European Championships. Here’s everything you need to know about the game:

Israel: While key figures like Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson have their places set in stone for the summer’s European Championships, there is competition across the squad with impressive depth available to Gareth Southgate, much of which could be deployed at Wembley on Thursday night.
Kalvin Phillips, James Ward-Prowse and Jude Bellingham might just be battling for one, at most two, places in the Euros squad and there will be similar competition among the likes of Ollie Watkins and Dominic Calvert-Lewin for a role as Kane’s backup. The coming days are the last chance for these players to impress Southgate in training.
