‘More to come’, England promise after sealing top spot

Share

England head coach Gareth Southgate says his troops would get better after they beat Czech Republic 1-0 at Wembley on Tuesday to secure top spot in Euro 2020 Group D.

“I think there is more to come from us definitely, we haven’t scored from a set-play yet, we are not fluent but we have moments when we look a good side,” said Southgate.

England will tackle the second-placed team in Group F – most likely Portugal, Germany or France but Southgate said he was glad to have secured home advantage with next Tuesday’s match being held at Wembley.

“Who knows if that is going to be a good draw or not? We wanted to win the group, wanted to play at Wembley and we will see who we play tomorrow,” he said.

Defender Harry Maguire, who returned to the side after injury, agreed that England had more to offer.

“We’ve set out to win the group and we’ve done that. Can we play better? Of course we can. Will we improve? We’ll do everything we can. Three clean sheets, been solid. The fundamentals are there and now we’ve got to tidy up in every part of our game,” he said.

“In tournament football it’s about big moments in big games and not giving the opponents big moments to score from and at the moment we are doing that well,” he added.
