The Roy Hodgso-led England football team won all ten of their qualifying matches for the European football championship to be hosted by France in 2016. They’ve always had it easy qualifying for tournaments, the sentiment now is that, will they not underperform in the tournament proper this time around?
In a group that had Lithuania, Estonia, Slovenia, Switzerland, and San Marino, the Three Lions eased their way into the tournament next year by winning all of their qualifying matches, including a 3-0 win in their final game against Lithuania on Monday.
The star for England through the qualifying was Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and in a statement after the 10th win, he expressed the team’s readiness to break the jinx of perennial under-performance this time.
“We are very excited about going to France and we have belief in our squad. “Moving forward, it is very young with some important experienced players as well and if the young boys keep developing, we have a long season ahead of us, then it is a good opportunity for all of us to go and show that we deserve to be there”.
“We are all really excited to go to the Euros and we have to have belief in ourselves that we can do something good but obviously we have the warm up games now and we have to focus on those. It is going to be a tough task but we need to beat those teams or compete with those teams if we want to do really well, so that is our next task and that is what we are going to go and do”.
