When are England playing next?

The England squad will take on Spain in the final on Sunday. The game will take place at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, with kick-off commencing at 8pm BST.

In a press conference, the team's manager Gareth Southgate said that England reaching the final was his team's "best" achievement.

"I think it has to be the best," Gareth said. "It's another landmark. The way that we played as well, we played so well throughout the game. It was a complicated game, they kept changing, we had to change how we played [to keep up with them] – defensively especially.

"But I think we caused them problems all night… The players made so many good decisions on the pitch… The end is so special for the squad."
