Gareth Southgate’s team have just two fixtures left before Euro 2024 begins, for which they are currently joint 4/1 favourites with France.

First of all, Southgate’s team will head to Newcastle to play Bosnia and Herzegovina on Monday June 3 with a 7.45pm kick-off.

The Three Lions will be hoping for a repeat of their last visit to The Toon in the 2005 Fifa World Cup qualifier, when they beat Azerbaijan 2-0 with David Beckham and Steven Gerrard hitting the target.

It’ll be an historic night with it being the Three Lion’s first ever match against Bosnia and Herzegovina, who themselves need to beat Ukraine in March’s play-offs to secure their place at Euro 2024.

Five days later, England will head to Wembley Stadium for their sixth ever meeting against Iceland on Friday June 7 for another 7.45pm start.

The traumatic loss against the minnows in 2016, who were then ranked 34th in the world, prompted a management overhaul and Southgate took over just a few months later.

England redeemed themselves in 2020 when they beat Iceland 4-0 behind-closed-doors at Wembley, with Phil Foden and Declan Rice getting their first goals for England.

Iceland still have a play-off against Israel to contend with, and will be hoping to have secured their place at Euro 2024 when they hit Wembley.

Southgate said: “We’re really looking forward to taking the team back to the North East and to a city that is synonymous with football in this country.

“We will follow that with another special occasion at Wembley allowing our fans the opportunity to give us a final send off before we head to Germany for another exciting summer.

“Both opponents in June are sure to provide stiff competition and play an important part in our preparation for the tournament.”

Euro 2024 will see Germany hosting a major international tournament for the first time since the 2006 World Cup, when England missed three penalties against Portugal in the quarter-finals.

Does Gareth Southgate have to win EURO 2024 to be a GREAT England manager?

After finishing top in their qualifying group, the Three Lions were placed in Pot 1, meaning they avoid group-stage matches against Portugal, France, Spain, Belgium and the hosts.

They’re in Group C along with Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia, with all the action kicking off in Germany on June 14.
