England have reached the last 16 at Euro 2020 but face a tricky fixture in the knockout phase.

Gareth Southgate’s side finished top of Group D by sealing a 1-0 victory over Czech Republic on Tuesday evening.

Raheem Sterling’s first-half header, which was his second goal of the tournament, was enough to secure the win for England at Wembley.

But the Three Lions are now awaiting their fate as they will play the second-placed team in Group F, which could be any one of Portugal, France, Germany or Hungary.

Group F will be finalised on Wednesday evening as Portugal play France, while Germany will face Hungary.

As it stands, France are top of Group F, Germany are second, Portugal are third and Hungary are in fourth.

However, that order can drastically change depending on the results.

England’s round-of-16 fixture will be held at Wembley next Tuesday, with kick-off scheduled for 5PM.

Meanwhile, former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville believes Southgate may change formation if they face either France or Germany in the last 16.

England aren’t going to win this tournament by outplaying France, Germany, Portugal and Spain,’ Neville told ITV.

‘I don’t think we have the players to do that. We have good players.

‘I genuinely think we will win it in the way we are playing now which is professional, by keeping clean sheets, making sure the back is protected by the two in midfield and then creating those individual moments of brilliance.

‘Don’t be surprised if we play Germany or France we go to five at the back because I think we may need more than four defenders against [Kylian] Mbappe, [Antoine] Griezmann and [Karim] Benzema.

‘If you are playing against Germany we can comfortably go to wing backs, I don’t rule anything out at this stage but I can’t see that Gareth will play the same way against the Czech Republic as he would against France or Germany.’
