Euro 2020 newspaper: Phillips bosses moan Modric, Lampard needs media training, up the Czechs!


The European Championships continued at a steady pace yesterday and fortunately passed without a repeat of the tragedy of the day before.

Danish star Christian Eriksen appears to be making good progress – news that will be music to all football fans.

England kicked off their campaign with a victory over Croatia on Sunday, and they will have a close eye on the debates in Scotland this afternoon.

Our latest Euro 2020 newspaper takes a look at some of the talking points around England winning.

Phillips bosses moan Modric

Luka Modric is without a doubt a great footballer. However, are we the only ones who think he’s a little too whiny too?

The Croatian midfielder threw his toys out of the stroller during the 2018 World Cup with a memorable temper tantrum over the song “Three Lions”.

He returned to it in the run-up to Sunday’s game, calling English journalists and commentators “arrogant”.

In the spirit of arrogance, does anyone know if Kalvin Phillips ever let Modric out of his pocket?

Ex-Chelsea star needs media training

BBC coverage of England’s game against Croatia drew impressive audience figures, although the game was played in the middle of a sunny Sunday afternoon.

For the most part, the coverage highlighted why the BBC kicks ITV out of the water at major tournaments, although one expert let it go.

Former Chelsea star Frank Lampard has failed to master management and his expertise leaves a lot to be desired.

Lampard’s habit of delivering a light comment with an insane smile followed by a very serious point is ridiculously boring. Give this man media training.

England hates in force

England receives a lot of criticism from fans in other home countries whenever they take part in a major tournament.

Yesterday Scottish fans were plentiful on social media, many of them firmly nailing their colors to the Croatia mast.

The Three Lions did the job professionally, setting up a fiery encounter against Scotland on Friday.

Before that, there is the small affair of Scotland and the Czech Republic this afternoon. Hodně štěstí v České Republice.
