Football News: Ollie Watkins Preps for Euro 2024 Debut with England

Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins is gearing up for his first-ever major international tournament with the England national team as they prepare for the upcoming Euro 2024 in Germany.

The Three Lions’ Ambitions

The Three Lions are aiming to go one step further than their previous Euros outing, where they lost on penalties to Italy in the final. Watkins, who enjoyed a stellar Premier League campaign with 32 goal involvements, is set to be a key part of Gareth Southgate’s squad for the continental showpiece.

Training Regimen Revealed

In an interview on England’s Lions’ Den YouTube channel, Watkins revealed the squad’s training regimen ahead of the tournament. Prior to their departure to Germany, the team played warm-up friendlies against Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as a surprise 1-0 defeat to Iceland at Wembley.

“Towards the start of the week, it’s more small-sided games, intense stuff,” Watkins explained. “The closer you get to the game, you’re working on the opposition, what you’re going to do, how you’re going to go about the game plan. It’s all about the small details later on in the week.”

Challenging Group Awaits

England will face a challenging group at Euro 2024, with Serbia, Denmark, and a Benjamin Sesko-led Slovenia standing in their way. As the Three Lions aim to secure a spot in the knockout rounds, Watkins and his teammates will be leaving no stone unturned in their preparation.
