Powell: I am standing with you

When England lost to Italy in the final of Euro 2020 on penalties there were several iconic images that will remain permanently etched into the narrative of that summer.

But the moment England's Chris Powell put his arm around Bukayo Saka as they watched Italy collect their winners' medals, told another story.

At that moment Powell's experience, leadership and role as part of Gareth Southgate's backroom team took on extra significance.
