‘Absolutely delighted for him’ – Southgate on Bellingham UCL win

England begin their preparations for Euro 2024 this evening, with Bosnia and Herzegovina their opponents in a first warm-up friendly encounter, with another to come against Iceland on Friday.

After that it’s onto the tournament itself with Gareth Southgate’s side facing Serbia, Denmark and Slovenia in the group stage – though before that, the manager must cut his squad from 33 down to 26, making Monday night’s match a crucial one for a handful of hopefuls who still have something to prove before the final group is confirmed for Germany.

Matters are further complicated by a handful of players not being available this time around, with Luke Shaw still injured, John Stones joining the squad late and Jude Bellingham winning the Champions League final on Saturday night. That means opportunity knocks for others, though, and they must quickly impress Southgate to make the plane.

PENALTY! England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

58 mins: The referee is going to the screen and it looks like England will be awarded a penalty!

It looks like there are two hands on Konsa’s shirt as he runs in. Pretty damning on the replay.

And it’s given! Tahirovic is booked too.

England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

57 mins: Another corner for England ends with Bowen fizzling the ball across the box on the volley, but no one is there to reach it.

55 mins: Bosnia break with Saric, but he’s forced to play it backwards. The away side keep possession though, before Katic loses it trying to go long.

England counter quickly, and it falls to Bowen on the right. He squares it to Palmer on the edge of the box, and he sells his marker with the dummy, but he tries one more dummy and the chance is gone.

Soon after, Gallagher wins a corner after his cross is turned behind.
