A Supercomputer has predicted that England will make it through to the final of Euro 2020 but will lose at Wembley to World champions France on July 11th.
Gareth Southgate's team made it through to the knockout stages after playing just two games, before the win against Czech Republic last Tuesday saw them top the group.
On Wednesday night the team will have been watching closely as Group F unfolded, knowing they'd be playing the runners-up of the so called 'Group of Death.'
At different times England were set to face each one of France, Germany, Portugal and Hungary in the space of about 20 minutes, as the goals kept flying in.
Eventually it was Germany who finished behind table toppers France, and that means they'll renew their rivalry with the Three Lions on Tuesday evening at Wembley.
According to bettingexpert.com's Supercomputer, England will actually make it through that game and take their place in the quarter finals, and will then go on to make it to the final.

France lost the final of Euro 2016 to Portugal on home soil and, according to the Supercomputer, they'll be handing out their own heartbreaking defeat to the hosts this time.
It will mean Southgate has taken his team one step further than three years ago in Russia but will ultimately not be enough to end 55 years of hurt.
"Despite some pessimism around England's performance in the group stages, our supercomputer predicts them to make it all the way to the final," a bettingexpert.com spokesperson said.
"But France look too strong and, having come through a more difficult side of the draw, have the backing of the data to go one better than in 2016 and lift the trophy at Wembley.
"That will make for a sorry sight for the locals, but finishing as runners-up would represent real progress for Southgate and his young squad."
