England will present rivals Denmark with a special shirt as a tribute to stricken star Christian Eriksen.

The gesture will see Three Lions captain Harry Kane hand it to Danish counterpart Simon Kjaer on the pitch before kick off.

England face the Danes in a crunch Euros semi final showdown in front of 60,000 fans at Wembley on Wednesday evening.

The England shirt will be signed by the entire squad and have Eriksen's name and number 10 on the back.

Eriksen came close to losing his life after suffering a cardiac arrest during his side's opening group game against Finland in Copenhagen.

The former Tottenham star needed extensive treatment before being taken to hospital – and is continuing his recovery at home.

"To think there is going to be another 20,000 people in there, it is an added motivation," Kane said ahead of the clash.

"It's going to be an amazing atmosphere. It's going to be an experience that we probably won't have as players again, unless we have a home tournament for the younger boys.

"For me and a few of the older more experienced ones it will be the last chance to play a major tournament game at Wembley. What an opportunity.

"What a moment it will be. Hopefully we can win and have similar scenes to what we had against Germany."

Kane then spoke about lifting the Henri Delaunay trophy: "It would mean everything."

"I’ve always said winning a trophy with England would always surpass anything at club level, in my opinion."
