England are approaching Euro 2020 as the favourites according to SkyBet at 4/1. And, for the first time in a long time, the 'it's coming home' orchestra could soon become more of a reality than a dream.
However, with just under five months away from the Three Lions' opening game against Croatia, Gareth Southgate's side have been cursed with injuries. Within the past three weeks, England have lost the English top scorer this season Marcus Rashford, the in-form Tammy Abraham, captain Harry Kane and the Premier League top scorer Jamie Vardy.
Indeed, the latter is retired, but with many names still expected to be in the physio room for some time, there was a hope Vardy could make a U-turn on his England career.
