England Close to Euro 2024 Knockout Stage

England are close to securing their place in the Euro 2024 knockout stages, despite a pair of underwhelming performances in their opening two matches. Gareth Southgate’s side currently sits atop Group C, thanks to a 1-0 victory over Serbia, where Jude Bellingham’s early header proved decisive, and a 1-1 draw against Denmark after Harry Kane’s opener was cancelled out by Morten Hjulmand before the break.

With just Slovenia remaining in the final group game on Tuesday evening (9 pm kickoff, 8 pm UK time), England are in a strong position to advance. A win would guarantee them as Group C winners, while a draw would be enough to secure at least a second-place finish, regardless of the outcome in the Denmark vs. Serbia match.

“The only way England could finish third in the group is if Slovenia and Denmark both emerge victorious on Tuesday. However, this scenario is unlikely, as since the Euros expanded to 24 teams in 2016, every team that has claimed at least four points has progressed to the next round, even if only as one of the four best third-placed sides.”
