As the highly anticipated Euro 2024 tournament unfolds, all eyes are on England and their quest for glory. The Three Lions got their campaign underway on Sunday with a narrow 1-0 victory over Serbia, thanks to a first-half headed goal from Jude Bellingham.

Despite the win, Gareth Southgate’s side faced some challenges in the second half, having to hold on to secure the three points. However, the manager is set to name an unchanged starting XI for England’s second group game against Denmark on Thursday evening.

According to Sky Sports, Southgate is “minded to stick with Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield and Phil Foden on the left wing, despite a lacklustre second half against Serbia on Sunday.” The report suggests that the England boss is confident in his team’s ability to secure a spot in the knockout stages with a win over the Danes.

Southgate praised Phil Foden’s overall contribution in the opening match, highlighting the Manchester City standout’s work off the ball. The England manager emphasized that Foden’s pressing, positioning, and ball retention were crucial factors in the narrow victory over Serbia.
