Fulham academy director Huw Jennings has some interesting observations on how the changes to the English youth set-up have helped the national side do so well at the European Championships.

Speaking to the Independent, Jennings – a former teacher himself – identifies the ability to be open to new ideas as important as well as highlighting the extraordinary spell of possession England enjoyed at the end of extra time against Denmark as an indication of Gareth Southgate’s side’s development. That was probably the best period of keepball since Sven Goran Eriksson’s side almost scored a magnificent second against Argentina in 2002.
