    Such a difference when you hear him talk, for him it's not about the money, not about going from game to game. He's built a style of play and group of players who love playing for England. All seems so simple when you genuinely care and know what you're doing.

    never expect England to reach semi final . Usually they are shite on the group stage/knockout round & always return home early . Out of all 'top manager' for England , not really expecting Southgate to bring them far . I hope England can win something in the future , Euro 20 or maybe WC22 . Goodluck

    Bs England got lucky in Russia with the team they face...yes young players are good but you need players that are playing week in and week out

    What he is saying about Croatian football, that clubs need to play young players and sell them off later, so players are used to play under pressure from a young age on, is more or less the same for most Belgium clubs. They can maybe afford a little more foreign players, but mostly young ones that are taking their first steps in professional football.

    England are overhyped. Southgate has the promise of youth, but not quite sufficient talent to play the manager's preferred systems. The high from the favourable-draw-driven run in Russia will fade fairly fast. Cannot beat any of the bigger footballing nations.

    I am surprised Lallana even made it in to the England squad. What has he actually done for Liverpool, or England, over the past 2-3 years? Even if that is due to injury, he still hasn't contributed anything. So what warrants his selection. There are better, younger players like Ross Barkley that should be in this England squad. Yet Barkley isn't, even after the Lallana and Sterling injuries. Why call up a 4th goalkeeper? That's a BS decision.

    • Sammy Beck
      Sammy Beck 8 months ago

      He's been England's most consistent player over the last few years mate so you've clearly never watched him when he's played for England and Ross Barkley is shocking shouldn't be anywhere near the England squad which thankfully he isn't. Lallana's way better than shite Barkley

    I can undertand the optimism considering how poor England has been over the years. HOWEVER! This squad in terms of quality is not even close being up there with the best. I would not call the WC an indicator of much considering which team England managed to beat. If they can have a good run in the Euros I might change my position though. I doubt the Euros will be a success though

      Of course it is. We have some of the best young players in the world coming through. Better than Ur German shite. Only France are ahead of us in youth development. Top European clubs would take the majority of our players. Jelous much?

    Southgate each and every interview refers to a certain style . I dont get it ...Which style of football does england play . They dont have any midfield player to play through midfield so they end up playing from the back and hoofing it in the channel for runners to get the ball and heavily rely on the physic of Kane.
    He is jst selling a fake dream and he was lucky by having easy world cup run.

    • Andrew Joyce
      Andrew Joyce Month ago

      Bollocks.. england are now playing a technical passing game. They have technical wide players. Defenders who are comfortable on the ball. Our midfield is more about number 10s. Kane is coming deep to get involved in the play. Then there's rashford wonderful technical player

  • Travis Miller

    England need more Pep Guardiola players to succeed.
    Mourinho only knows defending,Klopp only knows pressing.
    English believe they cant play Football,their only chance of winning is Kicking Legs,Throwing Elbows.Thus few Football Players for Pep to pick from,most of them way overpriced.

      Yes you are right. PEP style which is Spain style is bad for knockout. 2008 Euro win. 2010 World cup win. 2012 Euro win. Poor results of high line possesion based fooball

      To be able to play Pep football u need the best of the best. Klopp system would suit them best. Not to mention Pep football is defensibly fragile, and not suited very well suited to knock-out football, nor international football. Remember Spain last 8 years. 80% possession, 3 shots

    An indication of England's progress is the penalty win over Colombia. Winning that penalty shoot-out spoke volumes about the team and what they can achieve over the years to come. In the past I was extremely reluctant to watch any England game but Russia 2018 has renewed my positive feelings about their potential and the reality of what they can achieve in years to come. A World Cup? Who knows, is all I can say. I do, however, wish them the best!

    The last time Spain & England met, both Lopetegui & Southgate started their new journey with the teams. Spain then had a disastrous World Cup, while England a relatively successful one. Now Luis Enrique has to start from scratch for Spain, while Gareth is in the development phase. Luis Enrique's current concern is probably only on how to win games, but Gareth Southgate already talks about continuity of England generations for the next few years. And Spain is considered one of the biggest in football !!! So regardless of the coming outcome, England should take the moment to be proud.
