Former Hull City star Jarrod Bowen says he understands the frustration of supporters after England produced a desperate display on Thursday night to draw 1-1 with Denmark in Frankfurt.

Gareth Southgate's side looked worryingly off the pace and were heavily criticised for their tepid display, and though they didn't lose the game, the feeling of angst around the camp has been obvious in the hours since.

Despite the outpouring of anger and frustration, England remain top of the group with four points after beating Serbia in their opening game and know a positive result against Slovenia on Tuesday night (8pm) will see them safely through to the round of 16.

“I get it, because you want to win the games and you want to be in the best position possible,” he told reporters at the Three Lions' training camp in Blankenhain.

“But sometimes it’s not as easy as that. It’s my first tournament so it’s my first time seeing England at a major tournament with the fans and the following. For me, it’s one of the best and yes we’re disappointed that we haven’t won the game but those are the standards that we’ve set and we want to win these games and as many games as possible.

“But it’s not given to you as easy as that. We’ve set such high standards but we don’t expect to win every game because that’s a bit of an arrogance but we’re always confident in our own ability to win. My message to the fans would be to keep sticking with it, keep showing the support that you have done because for me to experience it has been incredible.”
