After defeating the Czech Republic with the minimum score, the Three Lions officially entered the round of 16 of Euro 2021 as the winner of Group D.
At Wembley, the England team played not too dominantly against the Czech Republic. However, Raheem Sterling’s early goal was enough for the Three Lions to get their second victory at Euro 2021, meaning the first place in Group D.
With this result, coach Gareth Southgate and his students are likely to face a very strong opponent in the 1/8 round, which is the 2nd ranked team in Group F. Although this group is not finished yet, it is highly likely. England will face one of the big three, France, Germany or Portugal.
It is also not excluded that the Three Lions will face Hungary in the first knockout round. But for this to happen, the representative of Central European football must win against Germany in the final match.
Meanwhile, the Croatian team, after beating Scotland with a score of 3-1, also officially entered the round of 16. The opponent of the defending World Cup runner-up will be the runner-up team of Group E (not yet determined).
Up to the present time, the 1/8 round of Euro 2021 has officially determined the first two pairs. Wales will face a passionate Danish team, while Italy’s champion candidate will continue their journey to conquer the throne with a confrontation with Austria.
The first knockout round of the Euro 2021 finals will begin on Saturday evening, June 26 (Vietnam time) with the confrontation between Wales and Denmark.
