Ex-Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has advised England manager Gareth Southgate ahead of the last 16 clash with Germany. Cesc Fabregas told the Daily Telegraph that England have to change their approach for the game against the Germans and that they might not be able to survive if they adopt the same approach from their campaign in Group D.
England adopted a conservative approach in their group campaignbut Cesc Fabregas believes that Southgate and his players might not goall the way till the end of the tournamentwith that approach despite the fact that defending champions Portugal adopted a similar approach on the way to winning the European Championship in France five years ago. The Portuguese team won the tournament by beating France in the final thanks to the extra time strike from Eder. The former Swansea City attacker was the responsible for the only goal of the game.
Southgate and his players started the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament with a 1-0 win over Croatia courtesy the goal from Raheem Sterling in the second half. England then went on to play out a goalless draw with Scotland in their second group game before the Three Lions wrapped up their group campaign with another 1-0 victory over Czech Republic thanks to Manchester City attacker Sterling. Sterling has been responsible for the two England goals at the tournament.
England are the only team yet to concede a single goal at the tournament ahead of the game with Germany. The winner of the game will face the winner of the other last 16 clash on Tuesday between Sweden and Ukraine.
