England midfielder Lee Cattermole is setting his sights on Euro glory in Sweden over the next few days.
The Under-21s face their hosts in the semi-final tonight, knowing that victory will secure them a spot in Monday’s final and the Wigan Athletic man has enjoyed the competition so far.
"It's been enjoyable, and we just want to win the next two games and the tournament now,” he told TheFA.com in a joint interview with fellow midfield man Craig Gardner.
"We've had a look at Sweden and they're a big strong side, who play in an English way so they will be tough opponents, especially with the fans behind them.”
With the game set to be played in front of a sell out crowd in Gothenburg, Stuart Pearce’s team know they will face a hostile atmosphere at the Gamla Ullevi stadium.
"We need to be ready for that and make sure we get off to a good start,” he added.
"Hopefully there will be a few English fans over to support us.”
