Gareth Southgate has led the Three Lions to victories over Croatia and Czech Republic, with a hard-fought draw over Scotland sandwiched in between.

And we've taken a look at what lies ahead for England in their quest to win a first major tournament since the 1966 World Cup.

England finished top of Group D after Tuesday night's win at Wembley.

As a result, they face the unenviable challenge of taking on the runners-up in the feared Group F.

And on a rollercoaster night of action on Wednesday, England looked set to face each of France, Portugal, Germany and Hungary at different stages.

But come full-time it is, somewhat inevitably, a clash with our old enemies the Germans awaiting Southgate's Lions.

That blockbuster takes place next Tuesday at Wembley, kicking off at 5pm.

If England can break with tradition and win, they will play their quarter-final clash against either Group E winners Sweden or 3rd-place qualifiers Ukraine.

England beat the Swedes at the same stage in the last World Cup, as Harry Maguire and Dele Alli netted in a 2-0 win.

That clash would take place on July 3, with kick-off in Rome at 8pm.


In the semis, England are in the same half of the draw as Wales - with a potential clash in front of 60,000 fans at Wembley on July 7.

The Welsh play Denmark in Amsterdam on Saturday in their last-16 clash.

The winners of that will face either Holland or England's group rivals the Czechs in the quarters.

That leaves favourites France in the other half of the draw, along with giants Portugal, Belgium, Italy and Spain.

If all goes well, England could be facing one of them at the end of the glorious summer, in the final at Wembley on July 11.
