Former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he was pleased with the performances of Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish and Luke Shaw after England beat the Czech Republic to progress to Euro 2020’s last 16 as Group D winners.

When analysing the game in the BBC Studio, Lampard was pleased with the attacking display of the Three Lions against the Czech Republic and hailed United target Jack Grealish for a fine performance and also United left-back Luke Shaw.

Lampard said: “Scotland was the main one where we all sat up and said, “We don’t like that”, and I’m sure Gareth would have addressed a lot of things going into yesterday,’ the ex-England and Chelsea midfielder said.

“I felt that we picked up the speed of the game, in that first half, much more than we have done at this tournament so far with Saka turning for the first goal and going past them and breaking the line.

“Grealish will always do that and we just had more speed. We were penetrating with Luke Shaw arriving as well so it was more exciting.

“To try and have sustained periods in the opposition half and maybe be a bit better on the ball is something we need to look at.”
