Steve Freeth, Kelly Somers and Sam Matterface discuss the current shape of England as the Three Lions get their European Championship qualification campaign underway against Italy and Ukraine.
It's been three months since England agonisingly crashed out of the Qatar World Cup in the quarter-finals against France, and with the dust just about settled, Gareth Southgate's charges are now tasked with rubber-stamping their ticket to Germany.
England have been drawn in an awkward-looking group alongside Italy, Ukraine, North Macedonia and Malta, but the Three Lions will certainly fancy their chances of taking their place at a seventh consecutive tournament,
The nation's qualification record in recent campaigns has been formidable, losing just one match across their last six sets of qualifiers, and manager Southgate will be dreaming of another seamless route to the showpiece tournament in 2024.
Preparing to guide his country to his third major tournament as national team boss, Southgate has named a squad brimmed with attacking talent for the opening matches against Italy and Ukraine, with in-form youthful duo Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden primed to comprise the supporting cast to captain Harry Kane in attack.
England are priced at 15/8 to progress through Group C unbeaten, and 25/1 to win every match in the group, just as they did in qualifying for the European Championship in 2016.
