England boss Southgate: Qualifying too comfortable for Europe's elite

Gareth Southgate's men will be looking to continue their epic start to the Euros when they face Kosovo at St Mary's, Southampton on Tuesday.

"You need to have players on the field to affect the games, but you need to have players that can come in and have an impact and I think we're in a healthy position".

During a feisty press conference on Monday, Challandes said: "We are Kosovo and we are here against one of the best teams in the world, in my opinion - the best team in the world".

"For me as a coach it is not easy to have a good mix for the evaluation of this game".

Gareth Southgate has been linked to several club jobs after his success with the England job more players to midfield and Frenkie.

"Although we have for a long time nearly wanted Marcus to be that option as a nine, I'm still not certain that that is where he is happiest and where he does his best work", Southgate said. He was only involved in four games for us last season because of injury - two starts and two off the bench. "I think you have to maintain the highest possible quality".

World Cup Golden Boot victor Harry Kane grabbed a hat-trick in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Bulgaria to move him past Stan Mortensen and Sir Geoff Hurst in England's all-time scoring ranks.

"For me it is a wonderful team but I have only this way in my head - I don't want to say to my team, "OK, we stay in our own half and defend, defend, defend" - I hope we can play and be an opponent, not a big opponent but and opponent with intensity".

So far, the Three Lions have played exceptionally well, with an aggregate score of 14-1 after three games.

'But also, a little bit, that although we've for a very long time almost wished Marcus to be that choice as a 9, I'm nonetheless not sure that that's the place he's happiest and the place he does his finest work.

My Super Single on Saturday was England -2 at 10-11 and this time it's just shorter tonight at 20-23 with Coral but just as tempting.
