‘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.

Follow all the action between England and Bosnia below:

1717444190

England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

46 mins: Lovely idea from Palmer as he tries the clever touch to take it around his marker, and it almost pays off as Bowen collects and the two combine.

It’s out for a corner though, which Alexander-Arnold swings in and Watkins meets, but the Villa man can’t get clean contact and it goes over.

HT: England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

This game has been the same as many of England similar friendlies over the years. Tedious at best in many phases.

Eze and Palmer have certainly stood out, with Alexander-Arnold also showing why he’s a useful tool to have (but perhaps not a starting XI one).

All three have strengthened their claim to be on the plane, though the latter two were probably going anyway.

England will need much more quality in attack if they’re going to win this.

England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

45 mins: HALF-TIME! Bowen receives the ball on the outside of the box, takes a touch to direct him inside and unleashes a shot that is straight at Vasilj.

There was just one minute of added time, and we head into the break with the scores level.

England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

44 mins: A lull in activity as the half draws to a close, though Palmer is inches away from pouncing on a loose ball that would’ve put him clean through.

Bowen finds the ball on the right and dribbles wide past the challenge before delivering an inviting ball in, but England can’t make anything of it despite Watkins regaining possession.

41 mins: A decent chance for Bosnia as Guehi plays a loose pass that runs straight to a white shirt. Hajradinovic hits the shot, but it’s deflected behind after Dunk blocks, and Bosnia can’t make anything of the corner.

England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

39 mins: Alexander-Arnold does well to keep possession in the middle and spread a pass to Konsa.

England build again and Palmer exchanges passes with Konsa, before clipping a ball in towards Watkins in the box, but it runs out of play again.

England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

37 mins: A little bit laboured from England in the last few minutes. Plenty of passing sideways, and not a lot of penetration.

Only Eze and Palmer have strengthened their case to be on the plane so far.
