England boss Gareth Southgate says his side’s opening European Championship win over Croatia will “relieve some tension” in his squad.
Remarkably this the first time England have won their opening game at the any Euro tournament.
Raheem Sterling scored the only goal in front of 22,500 fans at Wembley after being set up by Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
“You know if you don’t win the first game, the pressure ramps up,” Southgate told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“We have two really difficult games left in this group and we made a good step forward today, but [there are] important steps to go to qualify.
