Chelsea striker Timo Werner believes that England can go all the way and win Euro 2020.
Werner, 25, was part of the Germany team who were knocked out by England in the round of 16. Raheem Sterling’s third goal of the competition, and Harry Kane’s first at the time got fans dreaming that maybe ‘it’s coming home’.
Since the Germany battle at Wembley, the Three Lions raised their levels in the quarter-finals by thrashing Andriy Shevchenko’s Ukraine side 4-0 in Rome.
Gareth Southgate’s team now await the Denmark semi-final clash on Wednesday as the whole nation dream of a final at Wembley Stadium on July 11.
And speaking at the Austrian Grand Prix, Chelsea striker Werner believes that his fellow Blues have a very good chance of winning the whole competition.
Werner said: “Yes I think so,” when asked if England can win the tournament.”
The 25-year-old went on to add: “After yesterday of course, it was a brilliant game from them. I think at the end they were the better team in the game on Tuesday. So yes they have all what they need to win the Euros and I wish them all the best.”
Away from the International stage, the ex-RB Leipzig striker struggled with his form in front of goal for Chelsea last season.
The German striker didn’t manage to score a single goal at this year’s European Championships also. In fact, the Germany vs England game was the only match where Werner featured from the start.

His apparent lack of first-team action for his country was a result of the 25-year-old’s poor first season in west London. In 47 games played in all competitions last season, Chelsea’s number 11 only scored a total of 10 goals.
Maybe Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell and Reece James winning the Euros could bring back a feel-good factor to London, which will inadvertently help Werner kick on next season in front of goal.
