England may not win the Euros this summer but if the World Cup is anything to go by then Gareth Southgate’s side shouldn’t be under-estimated.

On their journey to the tournament, England are playing warm-up games and they will face Romania on Sunday.

Earlier this week Southgate fielded a side that beat Austria 1-0 and he will be hoping for the same outcome this weekend.
