England National Team Profile at Euro 2024: Star-Studded, The Three Lions’ Mission to Make Up for Painful Failure in the Previous Edition

The profile of the England national team at Euro 2024 will be reviewed in this article. With a star-studded squad, The Three Lions – the nickname of the England national team – are certainly determined to make up for the painful failure in the previous edition.

Yes, the England national team is known to have succeeded in advancing to the final round at Euro 2020. Unfortunately, in the final, Gareth Southgate’s troops had to give up their first title at the Euros.

The reason is, in the final match, England had to lose to Italy via a penalty shootout which ended with a score of 1-1 (2-3). This defeat felt even more painful because it was obtained when Harry Kane CS competed at his own headquarters, namely Wembley Stadium, London, on July 11 2021.

Now, with an even stronger squad filled with the world’s top star players, England is determined to make up for this bitter failure. Before the Euro 2024 event starts being held in Germany on June 14 2024, it will be interesting to look at all the things about the England national team. The following is the profile of the England national team at Euro 2024.

Journey to Qualify for Euro 2024

England confirmed that they would qualify for Euro 2024 on 17 October 2023. This certainty was obtained after they managed to emerge as winners of Group C in the Euro 2024 Qualifications.

In the qualifying round, England’s journey itself was quite good. They are unbeaten in the 8 matches they have played. As a result, England won a total of 20 points.

England opened their journey in qualifying by beating the defending champions of Euro 2024, namely Italy, with a score of 2-1. Then, on the second matchday of Group C, England silenced Ukraine 2-0.

England appeared even crazier after that. Because, Harry Kane managed to slaughter Malta with a landslide score of 4-0. A flood of goals was also presented when England hosted North Macedonia at Old Trafford Stadium on 19 June 2024 in the fourth matchday of Group C with a score of 7-0!

Unfortunately, England’s winning streak had to stop after that. They were then held to a 1-1 draw by Ukraine. Then, rising again because they won 3-1 over Italy and beat Malta 2-0, England had to get another draw in the final match of Group C with a score of 1-1 when they visited North Macedonia headquarters.

Now, England is of course determined to maintain this positive trend into Euro 2024. Because tough opponents await them. Joined in Group C, England will face Slovenia, Denmark and Serbia.

Their journey at Euro 2024 will start against Serbia at Aren AufSchalke, Germany, on June 16 2024.

Mainstay Player

To compete at Euro 2024, the England national team coach, Gareth Southgate, has called up a number of his favorite players. Of course, he doesn’t need to be confused in choosing players because England has a wealth of talent in the world of football.

Southgate combined young and senior players in the list of 26 England players to compete in Euro 2024. The names in the squad this time are not random.

Southgate himself decided to bring 12 players in attacking positions. The 12 players are Jude Bellingham, Jarrod Bowen, Eberechi Eze, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Anthony Gordon, Harry Kane, James Maddison, Cole Palmer, Bukayo Saka, Ivan Toney and Ollie Watkins.

Names like Harry Kane, Phil Foden, and Jude Bellingham will of course be mainstays. Because their performance has been so good this season.

Then, there are also Trent Alexander-Arnold, Conor Gallagher, Curtis Jones, Kobbie Mainoo, Declan Rice and Adam Wharton who are ready to fight. For the goalkeeper position, Southgate brought four goalkeepers, namely Dean Henderson, Jordan Pickford, Aaron Ramsdale and James Trafford.

Continuing with the defensive players, in the England squad, famous names such as Jarrad Branthwaite, Lewis Dunk, Joe Gomez, Marc Guehi, Ezri Konsa, Harry Maguaaire, Jarreal Quansah, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Kieran Trippier, and even Kyle Walker are ready compete.

Even though it is studded with stars, the England national team squad is still in the spotlight. The reason is, it is known that a number of top English players did not receive a call from Southgate, such as Marcus Rashford, Jordan Henderson, Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling, and Ben White.

With the condition of the squad having been announced, will England have much to say? It will be interesting to look forward to their progress.

Coach

After the squad, it is now interesting to look further at the figure of the England coach, Gareth Southgate. The coach, who was born in Watford, England, on September 3 1970, will return to manage the England national team competing at Euro 2024.

Southgate is known to have held the position as coach of the England national team since 2013. He was appointed by the English Football Federation (FA) to coach the junior England national team first. Only three years later, Southgate was appointed to coach the senior England national team, but on caretaker status.

Southgate’s performance in managing the senior England national team also looks impressive. He was finally appointed as main coach in November 2016.

So far, Southgate has accompanied many England national teams b
