The Three Lions fell behind as former West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca gave Italy an early lead, but Kane levelled with a penalty, before Rashford and Kane scored in the second half.

Gareth Southgate’s side came from a goal down to beat Italy 3-1 on Tuesday and secure their place at Euro 2024 in Germany with two games to spare.

On paper, it was not an easy group for England. They were drawn with the defending European champions Italy as well as Ukraine, North Macedonia and Malta, but in the end they made it look easy with five wins, one draw and no losses.

Despite that, Southgate believes his side are still capable of much more.

“We need to make sure we are one of the top seeds next month,” he said. “We need to win our next two games. We want to be in control of that.
