aftermath of dropout England packed up after losing 1-2 to France in the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on the 11th. He was predicted to be a candidate for the championship, but he knelt down in front of the defending champion of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The disappointment was doubled because the performance was not greatly pushed back. The missed penalty kick by captain Harry Kane (29, Tottenham Hotspur) was painful.

The coach also shook his head at the elimination in the quarterfinals. Regarding whether to stay in England, Southgate said, “I will review and reflect on the past game.”

One piece was missing each time. During the World Cup in Russia, England, led by Southgate, lost 1-2 to Croatia in the semifinals. At the beginning of the first half, Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United) took the lead with a free kick, but Ivan Perisic (Tottenham) equalized in the second half and could not decide the game within 90 minutes. In the end, England collapsed with Mario Mandzukic (retired) scoring the winning goal in the first half of extra time. 메이저사이트

Even on the threshold of winning Euro 2020, he was frustrated. England lost the final to Italy on penalties. It was a loss that prospects Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Jadon Sancho, and Marcus Rashford (both Manchester United) failed to shoot three times in a row. At the time, coach Southgate’s kicker selection was criticized by the media.

Stress seems to build up. “I’ve been frustrated in a few tournaments. It’s hard to control my emotions,” said Southgate. “I want to make the right decision either way. Not right away. I need time to think.”

Former striker Chris Sutton of the English Premier League (PL) also questioned Southgate’s future. “I just have questions about England’s future. I wonder if they can still improve. Can Southgate achieve new achievements when they go into the tournament,” he said.
