Hart backs ´incredibly strong´ Three Lions for Euro 2024 glory – Soccer News

England are “incredibly strong” and “definitely good enough to go all the way” at Euro 2024, insists former Three Lions goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Gareth Southgate’s side, who were runners-up to Italy at the delayed Euro 2020, are among the favourites to go one better and lift the Henri Delaunay trophy in Germany this year, and there is envious quality within their ranks.

Jude Bellingham played a starring role during his debut season with Real Madrid, with Harry Kane following suit at Bayern Munich, while Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and John Stones are fresh from winning a record-breaking fourth successive Premier League title with Manchester City.

Hart, who recently announced his retirement from professional football, represented England at two European Championships in 2012 and 2016, playing alongside the likes of Kane, Walker and Stones at the latter.

The ex-Man City and Celtic stopper briefly featured for the Three Lions during the early stages of Southgate’s tenure, which began in September 2016, and he talked up the nation’s chances to BBC Sport.

“I know a lot of our players well from my time with the squad,” said Hart, whose tally of 75 caps is only bettered by Peter Shilton (125) among England goalkeepers. “They are top-class players who will have a huge say in how we do this time.

“I feel like [Southgate’s] confidence has increased a lot since my time with the squad. He’s had success at the past two tournaments… and it also seems like everyone loves playing under him, which is so important.

“For everything that is talked about by people outside the squad, it is what happens in the camp that really matters, and Gareth has built an environment where they will feel safe and will be very focused.

“It looks like the manager and players understand each other and what it takes to go the distance, so they will be able to put themselves in the best position to execute all the planning and hard work that they have already put in.

“England are definitely good enough to go all the way in Germany. If you look at all the squads, then along with France, we are incredibly strong.

“But I know what goes into winning a tournament, and it is not quite as simple as just having the best players, so we will have to see how it plays out.”

England begin their Euro 2024 campaign against Serbia on Sunday, while the Three Lions will also face 1992 champions Denmark and Slovenia in Group C.
