Gareth Southgate plans England attacking evolution to stay challenging among world’s elite
The Independent says as Gareth Southgate sat captivated by the entertainment of the Nations League, a thought occurred.
“What got us to the final of the Euros won’t be enough,” the England manager said. “There were four teams that were in the semi-finals this week. You saw the quality of the games, you saw the level of the players. We’ve got to make sure we are in that bracket of teams to be challenging. To do that we have to constantly be improving.”
As regards what is required to improve, that is a more interesting question. England were within two kicks of winning Euro 2020, but there were already indications that international football was also evolving. It was the highest scoring modern European Championships, with that coming from open and progressive football. The Nations League may be a much less pressurised competition but it felt like it continued this trend.
