Police arrest 14 England fans in Prague after Euro 2020 qualifier

Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount could reportedly get England start

Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount could reportedly get England start

Gareth Southgate's side surrendered their early lead to allow the hosts to get back into the game before Zdenek Ondrasek delivered the killer blow in the 85th minute to condemn the Three Lions to their first tournament qualifying defeat in 10 years.

The Three Lions arrived in Prague knowing that a win would be enough to seal their qualification for EURO 2020 and three games on home soil.

"Clearly that's not a night that we wanted to be a part of in terms of that record", Southgate said.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Southgate said: "It's exactly what I thought of him when I saw him playing for our Under-16s". We conceded possession too cheaply and particularly in the first-half we didn't create enough chances. The second half was better, we had a couple of chances to put the game to bed and we didn't and unfortunately we gave one away at the end. I think we've always maintained that there's a lot of work to be done to be a really top team.

England lost the match 2-1 and have another game on Monday when they travel to Sofia to play Bulgaria. We've got to get a response and it's going to be an interesting couple of days for all of us because we haven't had a result like that, we haven't had a performance like that and we'll learn a lot more about ourselves over the next 48-72 hours.

"Now, as players, we've got to give UEFA a chance to take that responsibility on board and deal with the situation".

"I think a lot of players were a bit upset about how much running we had to do in pre-season, but it's all paying off now".

"But equally, tonight, I think everybody would expect me to focus on getting my job right and make sure that I get the performance that we need from the team".

"I'm obviously over the moon but I have to thank my players, first and foremost, because they played great", he said.

"The most important thing for me was that all of the players and all of the staff know that they're supported, that we're together on every issue moving forward".
