England manager Gareth Southgate said his team was "blessed with really good options," while speaking at a press conference at the Wembley Stadium in London, ahead of England's UEFA Nations League semi-final clash with the Netherlands on June 6.

Southgate said that the team had been living up to the expectations set after the World Cup in 2018: “We've blooded some exciting young players in that period and now we're in a second semi-final in consecutive summers so it's something for everyone to look forward to and I'm excited for our fans, we want to keep that connection that has grown over the last year.”

UEFA drew the pairings for the UEFA Nations League semi finals, during a ceremony in Dublin on December 3rd 2018. England will face off against the Netherlands in Portugal, at the Estadio D'Afonso Henrique stadium on June 6.
