While there may be no Norwich City players in England's Euro 2020 squad, the city is still bristling with links to Gareth Southgate and his squad.

Here is the definitive list of Norwich connections to the Three Lions to celebrate the prospect of football potentially coming home this Sunday. 

Southgate Lane 

Running between Bracondale and King Street, Norwich has its very own windy street in homage to England manager Gareth Southgate. 

Nestled halfway up the street is Southgate House, a seven-bedroom property with impressive views over the city.

Swagger & Jacks 

Many England fans have been calling for Jack Grealish to start for England during Euro 2020.
