The match will be played behind closed doors on Saturday as England serve a one-match ban as punishment for “the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium” at the Euro 2020 final, though there are expected to be around 3,000 people in attendance with schoolchildren allowed admission under UEFA rules. And despite missing the fiery crowd England will still feel the pressure of needing a win. Gareth Southgate’s men have picked up one point from their opening two Nations League Group A3 games, losing to Hungary and then rescuing a 1-1 draw with Germany. Italy, meanwhile, top the group after their draw with Germany and a 2-1 victory over Hungary.
Gareth Southgate won’t outstay welcome at England
It’s less than a year since Southgate led England to the final of Euro 2020, their first appearance in a major final since the 1966 World Cup, and everyone will remember how close the Three Lions went to ending the 55 years of hurt. Throughout the tournament, Southgate was the one bringing football home again, but fast forward to June 2022 and things aren’t as rosy.
The results in the Nations League alone, one point from two games, have been enough to start the tides turning among some fans – but the football on display has worried a lot more, with England struggling to create clear cut opportunities.
Southgate has always had his opponents among the England fanbase due to the conservative football he tends to play, given the attacking quality he has at his disposal, but the former Middlesbrough boss is definitely experiencing the most pressure of his time in charge of the Three Lions.
Last year, Southgate signed a contract extension keeping him with England until 2024, but he has insisted that he won’t stay longer than he is welcome.
“I won’t outstay my welcome but I think I can do a good job for the team, and I think we have done a good job for the team,” Southgate told reporters.
“If you look back I have always said it. I am not going to be here forever am I? There will be another England manager.
“The major part of that is how the players are. Do I still feel the players give everything and respond to what we do? Yes I do.”
“I hear about conservatism, but we were the highest scorers in Europe last year,” he added.
“I am always going to have those situations where people disagree with the selection. That noise over the last two or three years does seem extremely loud and I’ve had to ride that and get on with it through the Euros and the whole of last summer.”
