Gareth Southgate to leave England post after Euro 2020?

Gareth Southgate to leave England post after Euro 2020?

England's first worldwide match since their run to the World Cup semi-final at the World Cup earlier this summer ended in defeat, with Gareth Southgate's young side slipping to a 2-1 loss to Spain tonight at Wembley.

Welbeck thought he had earned a point well into nine minutes added on, largely for the injury to Shaw, but Makkelie adjudged the Arsenal striker to have fouled Spain goalkeeper David De Gea right before scoring from close range.

'We want to test ourselves against the best and we put up a fight.

"That's what I want, to reduce the space and press a lot and against a team with three defenders it was very hard", Luis Enrique said.

A 2-1 defeat in extra-time to Croatia crushed their dreams of emulating the class of 1966 and bringing home the most coveted prize in world football.

Both teams to score is priced at a healthy looking evens (2.00) which seems like an excellent option for the game.

"I knew this three-month period would be an exceptional challenge and will tell us a lot about exactly where we stand, but I think that's good for us". Jesse Lingard then opened up play with a delightful flick before Jordan Henderson and Harry Kane got involved to spread the ball to the left flank. "There were stages when they had the ball and it was hard for us, but we had a good spell throughout the game as well".

"They passed it around very well in the first half, we talked about that coming out into the second".

Despite the disappointment of defeat in his side's first outing since they finished fourth at the World Cup in Russia, Kane praised his team-mates' efforts. "I am under contract, I have two years, you know that leads to a European Championship, which we have games at Wembley [in] which is going to be a brilliant experience", Southgate said.

Thinking about it, who better could you think of to have led Spain out of the doldrums after Russian Federation?

At the World Cup, eight different Croatian players got themselves on the scoresheet and Zlatko Dalic's squad still has plenty of options in the final third.

Spain coach Luis Enrique is the latest to give his opinion on FIFA's The Best award, adamant that snubbed Barcelona star Lionel Messi is the world's most impressive player.
