England will have to wait until Sunday to get their tournament underway in a mouth-watering encounter with Croatia, while Wales play Switzerland on Saturday, with Scotland up against the Czech Republic on Monday. 

With Ben White replacing the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold in the England squad, and with Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson both lacking fitness, Gareth Southgate has a selection headache on his hands.

It’s almost here… after what has seemed like a lifetime, the Euros is just 48 hours away following a year’s hiatus due to the pandemic.

Friday will see Turkey and Italy kick things off in the tournament’s opener and it promises to be a cracker.

For England fans, they’ll have to wait a little bit long before they can see the Three Lions in another major tournament once again and there’s a lot of pressure to finally bring football home.

Stay with me for all the latest news and updates ahead of the tournament throughout the day.
