Many saw this as the biggest obstacle Gareth Southgate's team faced on their way to a possible final.In fact, England was suggested to be better off as runners-up in their group game against Czech Republic and moving on to the other side.England is now the clear favourite to win the final, with Germany and the Netherlands both eliminated.Shearer stated on BBC One, "If you could pick something like that draw, then you would," "We beat Germany, and it was an impressive victory."The draw is decent, I would think. They are at Wembley. I know they will go home for the next game. But if they get to a final, it would have been six games at Wembley. It's hard to ask for more in an atmosphere like this.The draw's other half, which England avoided, includes Belgium, the number one ranked team in the world, as well as two more top seven teams from Spain and Italy.They are the only half of England ranked higher than them. Denmark (10th) is the only other country in the top 10, with Sweden 18th.Rio Ferdinand shared the same optimism, saying: "There is no one left that England will fear."
