Joe Gomez: Surprise Star in England Dressing Room at Euro 2024

Joe Gomez has revealed who he feels is ‘the life of the party’ in the England Euro 2024 dressing room.

‘It make it sweeter because I have missed out in the past. Getting a chance to be amongst the boys here is special for me.

‘We are coming off a disappointing result at Wembley.  We have to be at it and at 100 per cent intensity. We know it is going to be a tough game, Serbia are obviously a physical side, but we want to hit the ground running.’
