XHERDAN SHAQIRI sees England as a serious challenge for Euro 2020.
The striker of Liverpool and Switzerland is struck by the improvement of the Three Lions, although the 1-0 of Tuesday against his Swiss closed a series of three losses.
Both the Euro 2020 semi-finals and finals will be at Wembley.
Shaqiri, 26, said: "England is always one of the favorites but they will be big, big favorites at Euro 2020.
" Their football has changed.
Although Gareth Southgate's team won the victory against the Swiss from Leicester, they sometimes fought in defense.
And the ace of Reds added: "Maybe it was not their best day in terms of play.
" Maybe they did some mistakes but they have a lot of young players and the future is bright.
"They do not have as much exp ereency as before, they are much, much younger now – but they are the best players."
The former Stoke Shaqiri star will play at Wembley with Liverpool this Saturday in a bloody battle against Tottenham.
And feels he is handling the pace well.
He said: "It's a big change, Stoke in Liverpool, Liverpool is a great, great team.
" But I know how to be in a great team like I played at Bayern Munich and Inter. "
