The Denmark vs Belgium Euro 2020 game starts today (Thursday, June 17) at 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.
The Denmark vs Belgium live stream is starting soon. And this promises to be one of the most emotional Euro 2020 games yet, following the collapse and subsequent hospitalization of Christian Eriksen in the Danes' first group B game.
Eriksen had to be resuscitated on the pitch during his side’s 1-0 defeat by Finland on Saturday (June 12), and news broke today that he is now going to be fitted with an ICD heart starter.
Both teams — and both sets of fans — will pay tribute to Eriksen in today's game, with the ball kicked out of play in the 10th minute and a minute of applause taking place.

Obviously all that could affect both sides' concentration on the pitch, but Denmark in particular will need to put it to one side if they're to have a good chance of qualifying for the next round. That defeat against Finland has left them needing at least a point from this match or risk relying on other results to go their way in the final round of group games.
Belgium are in a much stronger position following their opening 3-0 victory against Russia. A win here wouldn't guarantee their qualification for the last 16, but realistically it would see them through. And with Romelu Lukaku already in sparkling form, Denmark will need keeper Kasper Schmeichel and captain Simon Kjaer to be at their best.
The game is set for today (Thursday, June 17) at 5 p.m. BST (12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT). You can watch the whole game live, and for free, wherever you are, so here's how to watch the Denmark vs Belgium live stream at Euro 2020.
