Andy Murray is hoping England can win Euro 2020 and believes they have a "pretty decent chance" of doing it.
Two-time Wimbledon champion Murray came through a hard-fought five-set battle to knock out Oscar Otte on Centre Court on Wednesday evening and will now face Canada's Denis Shapovalov in the third round.
In his post-match press conference, the 34-year-old's attention turned to footballing matters and was asked about England's 2-0 win over Germany in the last 16 of Euro 2020 on Tuesday evening.

‘I don’t know if I’ll get the opportunity to play again’ - Murray on Olympic exit

The Scot has backed England to go all the way and win the competition for the first time in their history.
"I got to see a little bit of Tuesday's match, but not much, because I was actually practising during the first half," Murray said.
"I actually went along to the Scotland-England match at Wembley, which was brilliant, great fun. Went with one Scottish friend tennis player and two English friends and had a great night, so enjoyed that.
I think England have got a pretty decent chance, it seems like, of winning.
"Ukraine is a solid draw, I think, and then if they can get back to Wembley for the semi-finals, I think that's against Denmark or Czech, they'd be favourites there.
"Yeah, it's a great opportunity for England to win a major competition for the first time in a while. Hopefully they can do it."
