Clearly June seems like a tough date right now, but we don’t know yet. We have to keep looking at each different alternative. If it doesn’t happen in June, the next game would be in September.”Bullingham said.England I had to play against Italy Y Denmark in March while in early June will face Austria Y Romania, in what would have been the last preparations for the Euro. A Eurocopa that, according to announced the UEFA This Tuesday, it will move to the summer of 2021. “I’ve been with Gareth Southgate (England coach) and the technical team. We are living unprecedented times and there are much more important things than soccer. From Gareth’s point of view, he supports the changes that are taking place. From a technical point of view, I don’t think we are in a different place than the rest. Nobody wants there to be a big gap in the season, but here we are. We are a young team, so not many changes will be seen, but it will be Gareth who decides “added the manager. In England they fear that the coronavirus pandemic will not allow the 92 remaining Premier League matches to take place.
