England footie fans are scrambling to find a ticket for the semi-final clash against Denmark.

Wednesday’s game is one of the most anticipated 90 minutes of football for the Three Lions since the 1966 final.

Demand has sky-rocketed with England now favourites to win Euro 2020, The Mirror reports.

Even players are joking they can’t cope with the demand and the team has been inundated with requests since the emphatic win over Ukraine.

Tickets were selling for over £1,000 last night on re-sale websites, with Betfair putting England 4/6 to win and Denmark 9/2.

60,000 lucky fans in a reduced-capacity Wembley stadium will cheer Gareth Southgate’s team on.

But some fans have slammed the ridiculously high costs to see the game live at the stadium.

Cambridge United supporter Dave Ryan, 52, said: “I paid £315 for my ticket from UEFA – a category 2 – not even the highest price.

“They’ve already had my money for two years. That’s a disgrace. They are pricing ordinary fans out of the game.

“It’s all about money. People are cashing in on their tickets but I won’t.

“I wouldn’t miss this for the world – £500, £1,000, £2,000? My ticket is not available.

“I can buy a Cambridge United season ticket for what I paid for the ticket.”

On the website Ticombo, a restricted view ticket was going for an eye-watering £1,300 – and other single tickets are reaching between £999 and £1,200.

Even pubs are proving hard to get into, and Seymours in Derby sold out before England had reached the semi-final.

The Cock Inn in Bishop’s Stortford, Herts, told regulars they couldn’t fit anymore people in and The Sportsman in Bristol was full four hours before kick-off.

Viewing figures broke records with 20.9 million people tuning into BBC One for the Ukraine game, making the match the most-watched TV slot of the year.

The victory over Germany on Tuesday was watched by 20.6 million.

There is set to be 5,000 Danes in the stadium and the Danish FA has already sent them shirts and flags.
