Former England striker Alan Shearer has praised Cole Palmer and the other penalty-takers following their penalty shootout victory over Switzerland.

All the England players scored their kicks, with Cole Palmer playing the first penalty.

Shearer told BBC Sport: “Palmer, Bellingham, Saka, Toney, Trent. Pressure? What pressure?

“Pressure is for tyres! It’s a different generation. They don’t feel it.

“How confident were they? They had the belief. They somehow found the energy to get themselves into the semi-final.”

Cricket legend Kevin Pietersen has called for Cole Palmer to start every game for England.
