Harry Kane has said it is the ‘sign of a good team’ that England sit top of Group C after two games despite another disappointing performance at Euro 2024. England drew 1-1 with Denmark in Frankfurt on Thursday evening, with Morten Hjulmand’s brilliant hit cancelling out Kane’s first-half opener for the Three Lions. Gareth Southgate’s side struggled for the second successive game after taking the lead as their forward line lacked fluidity and balance.   England have recorded an xG of just 1.37 over their two group games to date and questions remain over their midfield options and players ..read more

The transfer window for Premier League clubs is now open with top-flight teams able to conduct business until Friday, 30 August. However, the importance of the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules – and stricter sanctions – means June 30 has emerged as an unofficial deadline for some business. Clubs in need of sales will be eager to bring in funds before the end of the financial year, with Aston Villa, Newcastle and Leicester among those understood to be under pressure, while Everton and Nottingham Forest faced points deductions last season. We’ve looked at five Premier League pla ..read more

Following the first round of fixtures at Euro 2024 we’ve picked out five things we’ve learned from the tournament so far. Never write off the Germans It might be a tired cliché, but you can never write off the Germans. Germany have perhaps never come into a major tournament with such cautious expectations, with consecutive group-stage exits at the past two World Cups and a Round of 16 elimination at Euro 2020 fresh in the memory. Last year brought an unwanted record six defeats across the calendar and their pre-tournament status was closer to outsiders than favourites. On opening night, howev ..read more

Tactical Analysis: England their own enemy in unconvincing 1-0 win over Serbia
The Football Faithful » Wolves
by Vishnu Anandraj

As England stepped onto the pitch at Euro 2024, Gareth Southgate was not just tasked with bringing the Three Lions’ 58-year trophy drought to an end. He was expected to break out of the perhaps unfair caricature thrust upon him by England fans: that of the scrupulous coach curtailing the gifts of the most talented coterie of English players the country has possessed in decades. In their 1-0 victory over Serbia, he did little to shed that perception. The Three Lions earned a valuable three points, but their performance was anything but convincing, reflecting a cautiousness that belied their im ..read more

Gareth Southgate believes England will benefit from being made to ‘suffer’ against Serbia in their Euro 2024 opener. England began their Euro 2024 campaign with a 1-0 win over a stubborn Serbia side in Gelsenkirchen, with Jude Bellingham’s brave header the difference between the teams. The Three Lions were excellent across the opening half an hour and took a deserved lead on 13 minutes when the Real Madrid midfielder arrived into the box to crash home a header from Bukayo Saka’s right-wing cross.   England were in control early on but failed to build on that dominance and Serbia grew int ..read more

Jude Bellingham said it is ‘onto the next one’ after scoring the decisive goal in England’s 1-0 win over Serbia in their Euro 2024 Group C opener. Bellingham continued on his brilliant club form for Real Madrid with the winner in Gelsenkirchen, as the 20-year-old powered into the box to meet Bukayo Saka’s deflected cross with a brave header to score the only goal on 13 minutes.   It was a goal England deserved after a strong start against Serbia, but Dragan Stojković’s stubborn side proved to be awkward opposition and grew into the contest.
