England enter the tournament as second favourites. Could they win their first major tournament since 1966?


After falling short in the semi-finals at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, England fans will be hoping their national team can go at least one step further this summer.

Gareth Southgate's side dominated their group in qualifying, scoring 37 goals in eight games, and losing just once.

But despite a long footballing history, England have failed to ever reach the final of the European Championships and were surprisingly beaten 2-1 by Iceland in their last appearance in 2016.

With many of the squad reaching the peak of their careers, expectations for the Three Lions are arguably higher than ever in 2021.
