England manager Gareth Southgate says his side is confident ahead of the Nations League semi-finals draw and is ready to play anyone.

England will know their Uefa Nations League Finals opponent on Monday afternoon where they will be drawn to play against either Switzerland, Holland or Portugal, and Southgate is not bothered about who they might meet.

“We’re in a semi-final of a big competition so you don’t get to pick and choose your opponent,” Southgate told Sky Sports.

“Equally we’re developing well as a team. We feel all of those matches throw up issues and difficulties but also we’ve got to be confident about how we’re playing as well.

“The great thing is we’ve got a summer to look forward to with some important matches and some exciting nights for our fans and if you look at what the next two summers could be, that’s a really exciting prospect.”
