  • Can favourites Argentina follow up on their 2021 Copa America crown and end the run of four successive European winners?
  • Can France win back-to-back titles after their 2018 World Cup success in Russia?

While they showed signs of life by fighting back from 2-0 down to ultimately draw 3-3 against Germany in their final game before the World Cup, Gareth Southgate’s men are now on the worst run of any England men’s team since 1993, without a win in six matches

Before Luke Shaw reduced the deficit in that Nations League fixture at Wembley they hadn’t scored from open play for a staggering 565 minutes.

What cannot be ignored, however, is the simple fact that England reached the semi-finals in Russia in 2018 and the final of Euro 2020.
