ENGLAND have vowed to strike terror into opponents at Euro 2020 by scoring a second goal.
The goal may come as early as tonight’s game with the Czech Republic or be prudently saved until the next round, but will leave all other countries in fear of the mighty English scoring machine.
Manager Gareth Southgate said: “Really it’s unnecessary. We’ve already got them on the run with Sterling’s 57th-minute goal against Croatia which secured qualification.
“But an extra goal tonight, perhaps even scored by one of our incredible strikers who are the talk of the continent, would shake every other team in the competition to their foundations. They’d be afraid to turn up.
“Imagine Germany facing our rampant two-goals-in-three-games squad, English heads up and out for blood, them paralysed with fear at our positive goal difference. If we have one. We can’t rule out a petty consolation win for the Czechs.
“Either way a goal tonight, or at the very latest in the next game or the one after, will show Europe we mean business. It’s Brexit all over again.”
He added: “Score more than one? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We’ll save that for the final.”
