England qualify for Euro 2020 knockouts without playing final group game

England qualified for the Euro 2020 knockout round without having to shoot a ball in the final group game.

The Three Lions have taken four points so far, beating Croatia in their opening game before drawing a tie against Scotland at Wembley.

Belgium’s win over Finland in the early evening meant that any team that is guaranteed to finish in third place or more would advance to the next round.

Four of the six third-placed teams will be promoted and Gareth Southgate can now choose his team, knowing that England will be at least one of them.

Austria beat Ukraine in the 5:00 p.m. kick-off, which means third-placed Group B Ukraine are three points behind them.

Three hours later, Belgium beat Finland and Denmark beat Finland, which meant the third-placed Group B also got three points – one less than England.

Who England play next will largely depend on how they do tomorrow night, he said mirror.

At the top of the group, they’ll likely face France, Germany or Portugal in the last 16.

Southgate’s side have been rather disappointing in the tournament so far, with their goalless draw with Scotland drawing particular criticism.

However, the English coach is not worried about their performances and is equally relaxed about the form of his striker Harry Kane.

The Tottenham striker has yet to score and has been largely anonymous, but Gary Neville insists the striker is unbeatable.

“I said last week that I feel like he was unbeatable and I still say so,” he told Sky Sports.

“I think if Harry Kane had someone behind him who was even close to him, who could join the team, you’d say you might consider making a change. But you wouldn’t change Kane for it quickly or easily . ” Matter.

“I think he’s going to break all English records. You don’t drop your captain and main goal scorer after two games.”

Southgate said he expected Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson to return Tuesday night and play a role.
