Gareth Southgate writes for England v Czech Republic programme

Gareth Southgate writes for England v Czech Republic programme

Despite the problem, Rashford has continued to play for United, but appears doubtful to feature on Friday at Wembley as England begin their Group A campaign.

"We knew from a couple of days ago that Marcus wouldn't be ready for tomorrow", Southgate said of Rashford. I think everyone knows my situation with the Republic of Ireland.

"It is good, those younger players have so much talent".

"We'll have some players come through that will surprise us and, frankly, are going to excite the public because when they see them play, they're going to be excited by what they've seen because we are". I won't hesitate to start either of them in the game.

Hudson-Odoi's senior call-up raised eyebrows given that he is yet to start a Premier League match for Chelsea, but the 18-year-old winger has attracted glowing reviews for his performances in training at St George's Park.

He was called up to Gareth Southgate's side for the first time last week, after Federation Internationale de Football Association approved his decision to represent England. Is it on form?

"I can't wait for clubs to pick players 50, 100 times - that's not the landscape we're operating in".

We've played Montenegro twice out there in recent years and not beaten them yet, so that shows how tough these games can be.

Declan Rice's fledgling England career was embroiled in fresh controversy yesterday after he was forced to apologise for a post on social media that supported the IRA.

But after those comments resurfaced on the eve of his potential debut for the Three Lions, Rice took to Instagram and posted a statement to apologize.

England haven't played the Czech Republic for over 10 years - not since August 2008, in fact, when Katy Perry was kissing girls and telling anyone in earshot that she actually rather enjoyed it. Outside of that it was when he was 15 or 16 and engaged in conversation with friends.

"I think people understand; most people will have children of those sorts of ages and people are still maturing at that age".

"But I'm only 25, and I think as a learning curve for me".
