Denmark vs Finland Euro 2020 time, date, channel

The Denmark vs Finland Euro 2020 game starts today (Saturday, June 12) 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 BBC. Full channel details below.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Denmark vs Finland game has been suspended after Denmark's Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch. UEFA has now announced that Eriksen is awake and stable and the game will resume at 7.30 p.m. BST. 

The Denmark vs Finland live stream gives us our first look at Group B of Euro 2020, and it's something of a local derby. 

The two Nordic nations go head-to-head at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, and though Denmark may have home advantage and the more star-studded line-up, they won't be taking anything for granted. 

After all, Finland are playing in the finals of a major football tournament for the first time ever — and as Iceland showed at the 2016 tournament, that can do funny things to the form book. Iceland reached the quarter-finals of that competition, and though Finland would be doing very well to emulate that, they'll certainly be hoping to qualify from the group.

And they could well do so; they finished second behind Italy in their Euro qualifying group, finishing above Greece and Bosnia-Herzegovina in the process. Plus, in Teemu Pukki they have a goalscorer capable of causing trouble for any defence.  

That said, the Danes will still be clear favorites here. Christian Eriksen is a genuinely world-class creator, and an experienced defence led by Simon Kjaer and Kasper Schmeichel will be hard to break down. They're ranked No.10 in the world, and that doesn't flatter them.

With Belgium also lurking in Group B — they play Russia later today — both sides will see this as a must-win game. It all kicks off today (Saturday, June 12) at 5 p.m. BST (12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT), and you can watch it all live, for free, wherever you are.
