Tyrone Mings believes that England need to be streetwise and embrace the dark arts in order to succeed at the European Championship.

The Aston Villa defender was fortunate not to be sent off in last week's friendly win over Austria when replays showed he blocked the run of Sasa Kalajdzic with a forearm smash, but insists he will continue to play on the edge.

England's recent tournament history is littered with examples of players failing to keep their heads in the heat of battle, with David Beckham and Wayne Rooney among those sent off in controversial incidents, and Mings believes his team-mates can learn from some of their more cynical opponents.

Tyrone Mings has said he holds no grudges against Southampton for releasing him as a teenager but would consider it fitting to make his England debut at St Mary’s Stadium next week. The Aston Villa defender hopes to celebrate his rise from non-league football to a first international call ‑up with an appearance in England ’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria at “I don’t hold any grudges against Southampton for the decision they made,” he said. “It was fully justified at the time. I wasn’t big enough at the time and not physically developed as I needed to be to go into the under‑18s professional set-up.

England play Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria at Wembley on Saturday and Kosovo at St Mary's on Tuesday. "I have thought about it," Mings told BBC Radio 5 Live. "There is not a lot I haven't thought of in terms of what could and couldn't happen. I don't hold any grudges over Southampton. "I wasn't quite big enough, I wasn't quite physically developed enough to maybe cope with the demands of the game. It will be a fitting story if I made my debut at St Mary's and came full circle." Mings added: "I don't think it would feel any more or less special doing it at St Mary's than it would anywhere else."

'Being streetwise is a huge part of the game,' he said. 'Other nations are masters at the dark arts — staying on the floor for longer than needed, delaying restarts.

'Being streetwise is also sometimes what gets you over the edge because it winds up the opposition and breaks up their flow and their rhythm.'

Mings defended his aggression in the opening stages of the Austria game, but conceded he was fortunate not to give away a penalty.

The incident was missed by the referee, with Mings escaping punishment because VAR is not used in international friendlies.

Luis Enrique's Euro 2020 plans were thrown into disarray with Spain captain Sergio Busquets testing positive and the entire squad put into isolation. Diego Llorente also tested positive. It was revealed on Wednesday that Spain's health minister had permitted the army to vaccinate Enrique and his squad ahead of the Euros , with all of their group fixtures set to take place in Seville against Sweden, Poland and Slovakia. Enrique sprang a surprise when naming his squad by naming no Real Madrid players, with their captain and 2010 World Cup winner Sergio Ramos the most notable absentee.

Controversial vaccine passports will be used for the first time at Euro 2020 when England play at Wembley this weekend, with fans told to show proof that they have been jabbed or taken a test, according to a new report. At least 22,500 football fans are hoping to attend England ’s group stage Should the vaccine passport system operate smoothly, it could be repeated for larger audiences at the competition's semifinals and final, which are also set to be contested at the iconic stadium. Premier League bosses are also said to be mulling over a scheme demand for the upcoming season, which it

'Football is very soft these days, you cannot get away with much, but as a defender I have done that many times in my career,' said Mings.

'When a cross is about to come in, block the striker. But that one there was probably too aggressive. If there had have been VAR, absolutely I would've given away a penalty.'

Mings started both of England's warm-up matches, but is under pressure for his place with John Stones certain to play against Croatia on Sunday, and both Conor Coady and Luke Shaw pushing hard.

'The defence might not have been as secure as you would have liked, but we kept two clean sheets,' added Mings. 'We're absolutely aware we have to be better and limit the amount of chances we concede.'
