The Three Lions have not reached a final in a major tournament since 1966, and current England manager Gareth Southgate urges his side to end the curse by beating Denmark in the semi-final.
Since winning the World Cup in 1966, England has been eliminated in the semi-finals in major tournaments on four occasions. Gareth was also a part of Croatia’s semi-finals defeat three years ago, where although the players were disappointed, they felt like they achieved something. Today, however, they won’t be satisfied with just getting to the semi-final, but they are going for the win.
He later added that he gathered many young players for this tournament so that they can gather experience, which is very important for the generation to come. Among the best young players in this tournament in England are Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka.
With a double from Harry Kane, one from Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson, England recorded a 4-0 win in the quarter-final, meaning they go through to the semi-final to play Denmark. Gareth Southgate players are definite favourites in the semi-finals as well, as they have the advantage of playing at Wembley.
What’s next for Harry Kane?
He has denied any allegations of transfer and insists that the transfer talk does not affect his performances at the EURO. What we know so far is that Spurs rejected the first £100m bid from Manchester City. However, Pep Guardiola sees Harry Kane as a perfect replacement for Sergio Aguero and will surely improve his bid in the future.
On the other hand, newly appointed Spur’s managing director Fabio Paratici said that he still has not had a chat with the striker but says that keeping him is not just his goal; it’s the club’s goal as well.
In this tournament, Harry Kane has scored three goals, and with two games left, he is one of the favourites to win the golden boot award.
