Euro 2020 is now just days away, after being rescheduled to this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic. Nations from across Europe will be competing to win the famous Henri Delaunay Cup.
Gareth Southgate’s England side will meet Croatia, Czech Republic, and their oldest rivals Scotland in Group D this summer.
England’s final friendly before the tournament was a 1-0 victory over Romania on Sunday.
It means that the Three Lions have won both of their pre-tournament friendlies 1-0, but Southgate has not been overly impressed with the performances heading into Euro 2020.
He said: “Yes, we had chances to make it more comfortable but so did they. In the first half we did not work hard enough without the ball, we were too stretched and did not press well.
“After half-time, I thought we improved and it was helpful we went to 4-3-3 later and I have to say it was a good exercise, players needed the minutes and learned a lot from the game. Good to win.”
