What stands between England and their first major final appearance since 1966?

29 June 2021

England’s historic triumph over Germany at Wembley leaves them two more wins away from reaching their first major final since 1966.

Andriy Shevchenko’s Ukraine will await them in the last eight after their dramatic injury-time victory over Sweden at Hampden Park.

The two teams will meet in Rome next Saturday night with the draw beginning to open up for Gareth Southgate’s men.

Euro 2020 tournament progress

Switzerland’s stunning win over France on Monday night leaves them to face Spain for the right to potentially face England back at Wembley in the semi-finals.

And fans and pundits are increasingly optimistic that Gareth Southgate’s men have seldom had a better chance to make the final.

Belgium, Denmark and Italy – arguably the three most impressive teams in the tournament so far – are all safely situated in the opposite side of the draw.

But the clinical manner of their win over Germany will give Southgate’s side no reason to fear any opponent as the road to Euro 2020 title continues to clear.
