Joe Hart: 'No-one will want to play England'

England goalkeeper Joe Hart insists that no team will want to come up against his side in the knockout stages at Euro 2016.

England goalkeeper Joe Hart has insisted that no team will want to play his side in the knockout stages of Euro 2016, despite only finishing second in Group B.

The Three Lions have enjoyed the better of all three of their games at this summer's tournament, but dropped points against Russia and Slovakia to finish behind Wales in the standings.

England would have finished top with a win over Slovakia this evening, but despite being held to a goalless draw in Saint-Etienne, Hart believes that his side are playing "very well".

"We all wanted to finish top but we didn't. We have dominated every corner of the pitch and every Slovakian player will be proud of that result," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"We are into the next round and nobody will want to play us. I haven't had anything to do in the whole tournament to be honest, we have been playing very well as a team.

"There is good chances being made, I couldn't criticise anyone. Some heroic defending against us, it is frustrating but we are through. We are more than happy with our squad and all 23 are thoroughly deserving to play."

England will take on whoever finishes second in Group F in the last 16, with Hungary, Iceland, Portugal and Austria making up their potential opponents.
