There were dreams of football coming home again almost three years ago as England reached the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990, before eventually losing to Croatia and finishing fourth.
The Three Lions bounced back and, after also reaching the Uefa Nations League semi-final in 2019, set their sights on qualifying for Euro 2020 knowing the final would be at Wembley. It was an almost perfect run through the qualifying group with England finishing top, winning seven of their eight games against Czech Republic, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Montenegro. The sole dampener was a defeat to the Czech Republic, ruining the perfect record.
Southgate has since taken that momentum into the competition and guided the Three Lions to their first major final since 1966, with England having beaten Germany, Ukraine and, most recently, Denmark in the knockout rounds after taking seven points from three group games against Croatia, Scotland and Czech Republic.
England Euro 2020 squad
Gareth Southgate’s initial 26-man squad had to be altered slightly after Trent Alexander-Arnold picked up an injury, with Ben White taking his place instead and Aaron Ramsdale coming in for Dean Henderson.
England have been the favourites for the trophy since beating Germany in the Round of 16 and they’re now priced at 4/5 to go on and win the trophy prior to Wednesday night’s semi-final against Denmark.
It may be strange considering England haven’t won a tournament since the 1966 World Cup and haven’t even reached a final until now, but there is optimism surrounding the Three Lions camp thanks to the run in Russia. Having already dispatched Germany and overcome serious adversity to beat Denmark, could this be England’s year?
England’s path to Euro 2020 final
As winners of their qualifying group, England were placed into Pot 1 for the Euro 2020 draw and immediately put into Group D in order to play predominantly at Wembley. World Cup villains Croatia, qualifying conquerors Czech Republic and old rivals Scotland joined them in the group, with the latter securing their spot through the play-offs.
England laboured through the groups in unconvincing fashion with Raheem Sterling’s two goals enough to top the table, but they’ve since put in three very impressive knock-out performances.
After winning 2-0 versus Germany — a team they had lost to in their last four previous knock-out meetings, the Three Lions then dispatched Ukraine with aplomb in the Quarter-Finals, running out 4-0 winners in Rome. Finally, after going 1-0 down to Denmark in the semi-finals (back at Wembley), England reacted brilliantly to quickly equalise but finally sealing a 2-1 win in extra-time — just rewards for the immense pressure they put on the Danish defence throughout.
Now, only Italy stand in their way as Southgate’s side go in search of that long-awaited glory.

England Golden Boot odds
Having won the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot, it was no surprise to see Harry Kane as the favourite to win the accolade heading into the tournament. After a slow start, Kane has netted four goals in three knockout games and now sits just one behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick at the top of the standings heading into the final.
