Ex-Dutch stars slams 'scared' England

Euro 2020

A former Netherlands star has branded England's football 'miserable' ahead of the EURO 2020 final on Sunday evening.

The Three Lions reached their first-ever European Championship final after defeating Denmark in the semi-final on Wednesday evening.

It's also England's first major final since the 1966 World Cup final and they can now add a second trophy to their cabinet.

However, Former Netherlands international Pierre van Hooijdonk has not been impressed with how Gareth Southgate's charges have performed in the tournament.

"England truly play incredibly scared football. If that is what they do with the squad they have, I think it's really miserable,” he told Dutch TV.

"If they want to win the final they have to pay heed to what we are now saying.

"They were really average in the group stages as well. OK, they scored a lot of goals against Ukraine.

"But I have definite favourites for the final in Italy, and I hope they can do it.

"I am so disappointed in what England have shown so far. With their squad they should be able to serve up something more attractive."
