England are once again on a mission to bring football home, and this year, they stand a genuine chance of breaking the 58-year drought.

Gareth Southgate's squad experienced a bitter defeat in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, losing to Italy in a penalty shootout. However, they're now aiming to go one step further.

Despite the absence of starting centre-back Harry Maguire due to a calf problem, the Three Lions are still the bookmakers' top pick to hoist the trophy.

Notable omissions from the final 26-man squad include Marcus Rashford, James Maddison, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish, who were all sidelined in favour of several tournament newcomers. Cole Palmer, Anthony Gordon, Kobbie Mainoo and Adam Wharton are among the 12 players making their major tournament debut for England.

They'll be keen to make their mark as England attempt to navigate Group C, having been drawn against Serbia, Denmark and Slovenia. The first match is against Serbia on Sunday as the Three Lions begin their campaign.

Under Southgate's leadership, England have consistently reached at least the quarter-finals in every major international tournament, and with this likely being his final competition in charge, they'll be aiming to end on a high note.

As the kick-off time approaches, here's how you can tune in.
