And England will have a home advantage like never before, with no fans from Germany able to travel to Wembley.

That also means the Three Lions will be given 17 thousand extra tickets for Tuesday's game.

Meanwhile Gareth Bale stormed out of an interview following Wales' 4-0 loss to Denmark after being asked whether he would retire.

    EUR STAYING

    The Football Association are looking to open formal talks with England manager Gareth Southgate in order to extend his contract.

    In fact, the FA are determined to keep Southgate in charge no matter what happens in Euro 2020's Last-16 tie with Germany.

    The Three Lions' boss current deal runs until 2022, which is when the World Cup will be held in Qatar.

    FA’s chief executive Mark Bullingham said: "We’ll get into that formal conversation after this tournament. But if you ask me now I’d say ‘yes we’d like him to carry on’ [beyond Qatar].

    “I think he’s doing a brilliant job. I haven’t said that we’ve offered him a new contract. I haven’t gone into the details of that. But I think on the basis of everything we’ve seen so far he’s doing a great job and we’d like him to carry on doing that.

    “We would love him to carry on, for sure, beyond this contract”

    HIT THE ROAD JACK

    Manchester City seem to be plotting a £100million offer for Aston Villa star Jack Grealish after Euro 2020.

    In fact, it seems like City are willing to break the British transfer record, which currently sits at the £89m Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba.

    And Grealish’s reps are confident they have the green light for him to leave Villa.

    City head coach Pep Guardiola is desperate to bring the forward to the Etihad this summer as he plots a title defence and to finally win the club’s first Champions League.

    Villa have remained insistent they do not want to offload the 25-year-old, who has four years left to run on his contract.

    But SunSport understands talks with the England star's agents Stellar over the past few weeks have left his team happy they now have an agreement which would allow the playmaker to quit once the Euros come to an end

    EURO 2020 ROUND-UP

    John Stones says England have been piling on the penalties in practice in case Tuesday's last-16 Wembley clash with Germany goes to a shootout.

    Current boss Gareth Southgate missed the decisive spot-kick in the Three Lions' Euro 96 shootout exit against the Germans.

    And centre-back Stone said: "We've been practising so much.

    "We've been practising on keeping that clear focus of what to do if your turn comes up."

    It's about making you as comfortable as possible in that situation.

    "Unless it's Harry [Kane] or the boys who take penalties for their clubs regularly, it's a zone that we've not stepped into before."

    Germany are seething at being banned from training at Wembley ahead of Tuesday’s big Euros showdown with England.

    Joachim Low’s squad have had to change their schedule after Uefa ruled no one can use the Wembley pitch outside of matchdays after heavy rain left it on the verge of being damaged.

    Meanwhile, Wales crashed out 4-0 to a superior Denmark side, Dragons' substitute Harry Wilson picking up a late red card for a foul.

    And below-par Italy needed extra time to KO outsiders Austria 2-1 after a goalless 90 minutes, Azzurri subs Federico Chiesa and Matteo Pessina then netting.

    Tonight Holland face the Czech Republic at 5pm, with Belgium meeting Portugal three hours later.

    PEEK OFFER FOR GLUM WALES' FANS

    WALES' sexiest fan has offered glum Dragons supporters 50 per cent off her Only Fans and MySlink accounts.

    Alaw Haf has vowed to raise spirits with a cheeky display after seeing Gareth Bale and Co. crash out of the Euros.

    Wales were thrashed 4-0 by Denmark in their last-16 clash in what was a heartbreaking night for Robert Page's side.

    Busty brunette Haf watched the game in her local pub, but was left devastated at the final whistle – sharing her evening on Instagram.

    In one Insta story, she shared a clip with the caption: "What a day. What am I gonna do now," alongside several crying emojis.

    However, in the next story she can be beaming as she promised fans of her channel a treat.

    Earlier, Haf had already said she would give fans 50 per cent off both her Only Fans and MySlink accounts if Wales had won.

    Despite their loss, she stayed true to her word and has gifted subscribers the special offer.

    ERIKSEN SHARES CELEBRATION SNAP

    Christian Eriksen hailed Denmark's hero Kasper Dolberg after his goals helped book their place in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals.

    The playmaker, 29, continues to watch on as he recovers from his cardiac arrest.

    And he clearly enjoyed watching his team-mates turn on the style to beat Wales 4-0 in Amsterdam.

    Eriksen shared the Denmark national team's Instagram post of Dolberg wheeling away in celebration.

    The photo had 'Wales 0-4 Denmark' across the bottom with the post captioned: "We are in the quarter-finals."

    ON-SONG LIONS

    Gareth Southgate has printed out the National Anthem and urged his stars to 'sing with pride'.

    The England boss believes a rousing rendition of God Save The Queen by the players on Tuesday will inspire the 45,000-strong Wembley crowd to roar his team to victory against Germany.

    Asked about the prospect of thousands of fans singing the National Anthem, striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin declared: “It’s an unbelievable.

    “My first experience playing for England with fans was the friendly against Austria this month.

    “That was the first time I heard the National Anthem as a player and got to sing it as a player with fans in the stadium — it gave me goose bumps.

    “So playing in the Euros, with 40-odd thousand singing it in the stadium, it’s going to make a massive difference.

    “It gives you that extra boost and it’s just a very proud moment.”

    THAT'S TURF LUCK, GERMANY

    Germany are seething at being banned from training at Wembley ahead of Tuesday’s big Euros showdown with England.

    Joachim Low’s squad have had to change their schedule after Uefa ruled no one can use the Wembley pitch outside of matchdays after heavy rain left it on the verge of being damaged.

    It means the Germans cannot get a feel for how the surface is playing before the last-16 game against England, who have already played there three times in the tournament.

    All Group D teams were able to train at Wembley the day before matches.

    But Uefa have ditched the procedure and neither Austria nor Italy were able to get a taste of the grass either ahead of their match yesterday.

    It has left some within the German camp feeling England have been given an unfair advantage.

    PICK YOUR PUNCH

    Jordan Pickford believes he would put YouTuber Logan Paul to "sleep" if they ever met in the ring.

    Jordan Pickford says he’d ‘sleep’ Logan Paul if they met in a fight

    Earlier this month, Paul, 26, took on Floyd Mayweather Jr in an exhibition bout and managed to go the distance against the unbeaten fighter.

    However, that didn't deter England No1 Pickford, 27, from saying he would knock the social media personality out in a behind-the-scenes Euro 2020 video on England's official YouTube channel.

    The Everton keeper was seen shadow boxing in the clip, when the cameraman jokes: "Logan Paul, yeah?"

    But Pickford wasn't having any of it and responded in his own witty way.

    "No!" he scoffed at the suggestion, before joking that he could "sleep the boy!"

    BALE DISA-PIERS

    Gareth Bale went 'full Piers Morgan' as he stormed off from his TV interview after Wales were knocked out of Euro 2020.

    Watch Gareth Bale ‘do a Piers Morgan’ and STORM OFF mid-interview after Wales’ 4-0 Euro 2020 thrashing against Denmark

    The Dragons captain and talisman fronted up to the cameras following the 4-0 crushing by Denmark.

    But when asked whether that was his final appearance in the famous red shirt, Bale did not even wait for the end of the question before walking off.

    The BBC reporter said: "I know you were asked yesterday if this was going to be your last game for Wales," as Bale flicked a hand in disapproval.

    The journalist finished: "You said you wanted another one," but by that time the Real Madrid winger was away from the microphone and out of shot.

    The rapid exit was reminiscent of Morgan's on ITV's Good Morning Britain as he quit the show following the fallout from Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    SAVAGE RAVAGED

    Euro 2020 fans were in hysterics after Robbie Savage held a meltdown during Wales' 4-0 defeat to Denmark.

    The former Derby County midfielder was BBC's co-commentator for his country's last-16 tie at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

    Despite a bright start from Gareth Bale and Co, the Danes took the lead following a stunning effort from Kasper Dolberg.

    Mikkel Damsgaard played a wonderful ball into the Nice forward who curled a strike into the corner from the edge of the box.

    Denmark then doubled their lead shortly after the break after Neco Williams' poor clearance was tucked home by Dolberg.

    But Savage was audibly aggrieved that the goal was allowed to stand after Kieffer Moore appeared to have been fouled in the build-up.

    He said: "It was a foul but terrible defending. There's the foul…HOW was that not a foul? Surely that's gotta be checked! It's a foul but they still gotta defend better than this."

    However rather than gaining sympathy Savage's comments delighted fans at home who shared their joy on social media. One fan tweeted: "Robbie Savage’s head is rolling. Love to see it".

    CZECH FLIGHT DELAYED

    The Czech Republic’s preparations were in turmoil after their flight from Prague to Budapest was postponed because of an “accidentally inflated slide”.

    Jaroslav Silhavy’s side were due to fly to the Hungarian capital this morning for Sunday's last-16 clash with Holland.

    But it was delayed last-minute until the evening, with midfielder Alex Kral saying it was caused by an evacuation slide inflating by mistake.

    He tweeted: “I’ve experienced flight delays, relocations as well, even cancellations due to coronavirus. But not to fly due to an accidentally inflated slide, this is the first time.”

    Kral added photos of the slide from inside and outside the plane, alongside a “slidesandjumpingcastles” hashtag.

    However, this was refuted by a national team spokesman. They said: “The cancellation of the flight was not an accidentally inflated slide, but technical problems with closing the aircraft door.”

    HUGHES: WALES NOT GOOD ENOUGH

    Ex-Wales boss Mark Hughes says the Dragons offered little except a burst of fire at the start as they crashed out 4-0 to Denmark.

    The Man Utd legend believes Wales' only chance was to be totally on their game against a solid Dane' side.

    He told BBC One: "We needed to play at the best level we could today. We weren't able to do it.

    "We were up against an accomplished side. Maybe just that emotional boost but tactically Denmark understood what they needed to do.

    "After the initial salvo from Wales they didn't make any real impression whatsoever."
