Euro 2020 matchday three: Raheem Sterling gets England up and running

·2 min read

England won their opening match at the European Championships for the first time with a 1-0 Euro 2020 Group D victory over Croatia at Wembley.

Raheem Sterling, who has now been directly involved in 19 goals in his last 17 England matches with 13 goals and six assists, converted man-of-the-match Kalvin Phillips’ pass early in the second half to get Gareth Southgate’s side off to the ideal start.

England’s players left the pitch to a chorus of 1996 anthem ‘Football’s Coming Home’ from the majority of the 22,500 fans inside the stadium.

In Group C, North Macedonia’s first appearance at a major tournament ended in a 3-1 defeat against Austria, who recorded their first win at a Euros, while Holland, who failed to qualify for the last World Cup and Euros, made up for lost time with an entertaining 3-2 win over Ukraine.
