Jason Lowe believes England’s Under-21s have the resources available to be successful at Euro 2015 ahead of their second tournament finals fixture against Sweden on Sunday night.
Gareth Southgate’s side suffered defeat in their first group game against Portugal on Thursday, but Lowe, who featured alongside Rovers team-mate Jason Steele for the Young Lions in the competition two years ago, hopes the current crop can fare better than his side did in Israel.
At the Euro 2013 event, Lowe started the first two games for England, who ended the tournament bottom of Group A without registering a point.
“I’m sure they headed into the tournament with a lot of optimism, as we did when we went into it two years ago,” said the Rovers midfielder.
“Hopefully they can do a little bit better than we did.
“I know Gareth Southgate from when he came away with us to the Under-20 World Cup and he came across as a great bloke.
“I’m sure he has got all the lads on side and enjoying playing for him. It looks like a good camp and they have some top players to pick from. It is set up for them to do well and I really hope they do.”
