Do England have a chance of winning?

Our national men’s team is one of the favourites for UEFA Euro 2024 with many pundits naming them the ones to watch. England will be looking to build on their strong performances in recent tournaments and showcase their talent and depth.

How to watch the games

On television: BBC and ITV will broadcast all England matches live in the UK.

Online: BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub will offer live streaming services.

Radio: Live commentary will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Social media: Follow the official England football team accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for updates and behind-the-scenes content.

Who to look out for

Harry Kane: captain Harry Kane has recovered from his back injury and is said to be looking forward to leading England into Euro 2024. The Bayern Munich forward is known for his goal-scoring and link-up play, as well as his strong leadership in recent years.

Raheem Sterling: the Chelsea forward combines dribbling skills with pace, alongside a strong finish.

Declan Rice: Arsenal midfielder Rice boasts top defensive skills, passing and tactical awareness, making him one to watch.

Winging it? What to say in the pub

If you’re not fanatical about footie, here’s what to say to appear as if you’re an expert in the beautiful game. “Gareth Southgate typically uses a 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 formation, focusing on a solid defence with a dynamic attack. England's play style involves quick transitions, pressing, and exploiting the wide areas with talented wingers.”
