The future of the England national team looks extremely bright right now.
On the back of reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia, Gareth Southgate’s young Three Lions are now in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals where they will face the Netherlands after overcoming both Croatia and Spain in their group.
