England manager Gareth Southgate admits the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament is a huge chance for the team to win a trophy.

The Three Lions have not won a major tournament since the World Cup in 1966, and have never tasted European Championship glory.

Southgate spoke with The Sun about the young players in his team, and their chances of success this summer.

Speaking at Wembley, he said: "Phil [Foden - Manchester City] was part of the team that won the Under 17s World Cup, and we won the Under 19s World Cup and an Under 20s Euros in that same year.

"There are a large number of players from there now starting to come into our squad and that is brilliant for us.

"They've been getting great experiences for their club but also the national team where they have had experience of winning on a European and world stage - and that can only be good for England.

"We are focusing on the next generation, these young players - some who will be peaking not this summer, but in the next four to six years.

"We are really excited about what they might do this summer."

Southgate added: "We are in a tough group but if we win the group, there is a good chance now that our first knock out game would be at Wembley as well.

"So there is every incentive to do it, we just have to deliver."
