'We know we can do better': England draw against Denmark in Euro 2024 clash

England fans in Frankfurt tell ITV News Reporter Graham Stothard they 'expected more'

England were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw with Denmark in the second game of their Euro 2024 campaign in Germany.

Victory would have seen the Three Lions guaranteed to top Group C but they fell short as Harry Kane’s opener was cancelled out by a long-range Morten Hjulmand strike.

Boos greeted the final whistle as England missed the chance to top their European Championship group with a game to spare.

Speaking after the game at the Frankfurt Arena, defender Kyle Walker said the team "can do better".

“Listen, the manager wants us to play free, attacking football. Sometimes in tournament football, you have to manage a game," he said.

“That’s why it’s so hard to win tournaments, just like the Champions League.

"It’s not a walk-through, you don’t turn up and just take three points. It’s tough when you come to these grounds, hostile environments.

“We know we can do better, but we’re top of the group, so let’s move on to that.”

Asked what he would be saying to his teammates in the dressing room, Walker added: “They’ll know, they’ll know as individuals, as a team collectively, they’ll know we’ve got another gear.

“But we haven’t lost the game. Obviously everyone wants us to come and steam-roll teams three, four-nil – it’s not football, it’s not football these days. We’ve got a point, we’ll move on.

“As I keep saying, we’re top of the group and we’ll just keep going like that.”

The vast majority of England fans in Germany for Euro 2024 are “behaving extremely well”, the UK Football Policing Unit has said.

Police in Gelsenkirchen praised the “level-headed” behaviour of England fans affected by transport issues getting to and away from their opening match against Serbia last Sunday.
