The anticipation continues to rise ahead of England’s European Championship campaign kicking off against Croatia on Sunday.

Albion fans will be keeping an even closer eye on the Three Lions now to see how defender Ben White gets on.

That is after the 23-year-old was called up to Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for the Euros yesterday to replace Liverpool full back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who withdrew from the squad last week through injury.

Ahead of their Group D opener this weekend, this is what White and England’s week will look like:

Today, June 8

Having been given yesterday off to head home and rest and recover from their 1-0 win over Romania at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday, the players and staff will then be re-tested for coronavirus.

They will then re-enter their bubble as preparations move from Rockliffe Hall in Darlington where they were based last week to St George’s Park, the FA’s national football centre.

Today will also see England’s players come face-to-face with the media (broadcast and written) for the first time in 18 months.

As well as the virtual media access that has become common during the pandemic, some journalists will also be allowed on site, depending on whether they test negative upon arrival and also agree to adhere to strict rules.

Wednesday, June 9

The standard routine of training in the morning and media access in the afternoon continues.

Their tournament opener edges closer for Southgate and his side with only four days until they get their campaign underway.

Thursday, June 10

Preparations continue for Sunday’s match at Wembley, where the Three Lions will be desperate to get their Group D campaign off to a flying start.

But in order to do so they will have to get the better of their 2018 World Cup semi-final opponents, Croatia, with England out for revenge after losing 2-1 in extra time.

That result ended their hopes of reaching a first World Cup final since 1966.

Friday, June 11

While England continue their routine of training and media, the Euros kick off a year later than originally planned as Italy take on Turkey in Group A at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Saturday, June 12

After finishing their final pre-Croatia training session, the Three Lions will swap Staffordshire for London on the eve of the match.

Their UEFA-designated hotel has been kitted out by the governing body to allow for their virtual pre-match press conferences to take place there.

Sunday, June 13

Matchday for England. They kick-off their Euro 2020 campaign and also attempt to try and win a first major trophy since 1966 under the arch against Croatia (2pm).

A socially-distanced crowd of 22,500 will be in attendance to cheer on the Three Lions at The Home of Football.

However, Southgate still has one big injury doubt, with Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire looking unlikely to be involved in the game having only just started running again last week.

Albion fans will be hoping to see their man White get the nod again after his impressive display on his full debut against Romania.
