‘We don’t fear anybody’ – England youth and experience can go a long way at Euro 2020 says Trippier

Kieran Trippier says England will not fear anybody at the European Championships.

Gareth Southgate’s side kick off their campaign on Sunday against Croatia, the side that beat them in the World Cup semi-finals three years ago.

That run to the last-four was England’s best tournament performance in 22 years and Trippier is excited for the Euros to start after a 12-month delay because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I feel like as a team we don’t fear anybody,” the Atletico Madrid defender told Goal. “We know what we can do as individuals and as a team, but there’s fantastic teams – France, Germany, Spain, Holland, Italy – so we know it’s going be a tough tournament but we just need to focus on ourselves.

“We know how good we are as individuals and as a team and we’ve got experience, youth and hopefully that can get us a long way.”
