The football associations of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Ireland have concluded that the European Championship represents a better option than the World Cup after conducting a feasibility study, which was backed by UK government money.

The 23-year-old has long had shoulder trouble, nursing the injury for much of last season and during his involvement in Euro 2020, where Rashford was one of several England players who missed a penalty in a shootout loss to Italy in the final.

19-year-old Saka missed the decisive penalty in England’s Euro 2020 final shootout loss to Italy and was subjected to racist abuse on social media following the game.

Saka, who is just 19, was tasked by Gareth Southgate with taking the last penalty in the shootout on Sunday night. Italy were crowned champions of Europe after Saka and two other England players, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, failed to score with their spot kicks.

Quarterfinals promises great action. On Friday, Switzerland will face Spain at 5 pm while Belgium face a potentially much tougher opponent at 8 pm. On Saturday, Czech Republic will face Denmark at 5 pm while England are facing Ukraine, an unexpected quarter-finalist at 8 pm.

The quadrennial international men’s football championship of Europe, which is being held in 11 cities in UEFA countries, was initially scheduled to hold from June 12 to July 12, 2020.
