Marcus Rashford says England's attack is "creepy" for Euro 2020


England are the team with the highest Euro 2020 qualifying scores

Marcus Rashford says England's attacking game is "scary" and has the potential to inspire the Three Lions for a successful Euro 2020.

Gareth Southgate's 38 goals in 2019 are the most scored by the national team in a calendar year since 1908.

They finished the Euro 2020 qualifying group with seven wins on eight and 37 goals, 20 of them scored by Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling.

"I think it's a good combination," said Rashford of Manchester United.

"But we play games without that particular front and it's scary what we can do as a group of strikers."

"I think all these games are just getting you ready for the summer and if we go to summer around the kind of way we've been in recently, it will be a successful tournament."

Sutton questions Kane's starting point

Harry Kane's place on the team was examined by Chris Sutton

Despite an international break in which England scored 11 goals – a 7-0 goal against Montenegro to secure first place in Group A, followed by a 4-0 win in Kosovo – former Premier League striker Chris Sutton said captain kane is not sure what is starting place next door.

Kane scored a hat-trick against Montenegro and brought his total of three lions to 32 goals, making him sixth on the country's top scorers list.

He also won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup, but Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live that he doesn't consider him a beginner next summer.

"Entering the game against Kosovo, I thought two players were cemented [England manager] The beginning of the 11th Gareth Southgate, and it would be Harry Maguire and Sterling, "said Sutton.

"If you look at Harry Kane's form in the Premier League this season, I'd say Tammy Abraham played better this season for his club.

"It's not an easy decision, but if you withhold everything and look at the club's form in the Premier League this season, Kane would be the third choice behind Abraham and Jamie Vardy.

"It's good for Southgate that Kane is being pushed."

Kane has six goals in 11 Premier League games for Tottenham, while Abraham is England's second-highest scorer with 10 out of 12, one behind Leicester City talisman Jamie Vardy.

Abraham, 22, scored his first goal for England against Kosovo.

Southgate is realistic about your own future

While Southgate is planning next summer's European Championship, he is also eyeing the Qatar World Cup in 2022,

Southgate will go to Qatar for the Liverpool Club World Cup campaign next month and review possible teams.

But he said the last fortnight, which featured a major confrontation between Sterling and Joe Gomez, was a reminder that no England coach can afford to plan far in advance.

Southgate said his future "will largely depend on how we will continue next summer."

"When you have a week like yours, you feel that people may fall in love with you and if there is no heat to continue, it can start to affect the team," he added.

"So I am realistic about how quickly these tides can change, but we have always planned for the short, medium and long term over the past eight years."
