Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola expects his English players to learn from their Euro 2020 heartbreak.
England were denied the Euro trophy by Italy via post-match penalties with the team having four City players in John Stones, Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker.
Speaking to the club’s website, Guardiola said: “All of them played really well. I am glad and happy for them. They have played many years together and they made an incredible achievement.
“When you reach the final of the Euros it is a big thing. They have to be happy and so proud that they could help England make a good tournament.
“Of course, they have to be so proud of what they have done with their national team, the benefits, the confidence will be there. But the past is the past. What you have done with the national team is for the memories. The challenge is ahead of us and we will try to do a good season.”
