Euro 2020 Semi-final line-up means Chelsea are guaranteed a double European champion


Premier League giants Chelsea are guaranteed to have at least one player present at the Euro 2020 winners’ ceremony.

Semis set

The 2nd and final pair of European Championship quarter-final fixtures of course played out last night.

The first saw Denmark, courtesy of strikes from Thomas Delaney and Kasper Dolberg, send the Czech Republic packing, on the back of 2-1 win in Baku.

Next up was the most one-sided outing of the final-8, which saw England’s march towards the finale carry on, following a 4-0 drubbing of Ukraine.

Friday, meanwhile, opened with a Spanish penalty shootout victory over plucky Switzerland, before a rampant Italy got the better of world no.1 Belgium, owing to goals from Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Insigne.

Blues eyeing glory

As such, the Euro 2020 semi-final line-up looks as follows:

Tuesday July 6th: Italy vs Spain/Wednesday July 7th: England vs Denmark

And, as outlined above, across the final four nations in the competition, one common theme exists – the presence of at least one player currently plying their club trade with Premier League giants Chelsea.

England boast a trio of Blues, in the form of Ben Chilwell, Reece James and Mason Mount, with Italy next on the list, through Emerson and Jorginho.

Spain and Denmark, meanwhile, have benefitted from defensive contributions on the part of key members of Thomas Tuchel’s squad, in the form of Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen respectively.

As such, with Chelsea having also clinched Champions League glory late in May, the Pensioners are now guaranteed to boast at least one double European champion come the summer’s end.
