Regardless of the final result, England have turned a corner at international tournaments under Gareth Southgate.

Euro 2020 was a resounding success, with Southgate picking up the stellar work he produced in Russia three years ago.

At the 2018 World Cup, England were inspired by the soothing, straight-talking Southgate, the everyman who galvanised a nation and led the Three Lions to a semi-final appearance, where they were just edged out by Croatia after Kieran Trippier caused tremors on these shores.

It ultimately went to France, as Didier Deschamps decided winning the World Cup as a player wasn’t enough to satisfy his trophy cravings, with a second gold star now embellishing Les Bleus’ emblem thanks to the efforts of N’Golo Kante, Paul Pogba, Mbappe et al.

Three years later Italy edged England at Wembley on penalties to win the Euros but Southgate is ‘still the one’ for England. So, here’s a quiz inspired by the team’s two success stories at major tournaments. How well do you remember the 2018 World Cup, and were you paying attention this summer?
