Southgate wants England players to entertain nation's fans

Southgate wants England players to entertain nation's fans

Southgate's squad fly to Russian Federation on Tuesday and play Tunisia in their first group game on Monday, 18 June.

"I want to score in tournament football, it's something I want to change", he says.

"But I think people see signs of progress and enjoy watching us and the manner in which we try to play".

"Everyone gets on with everyone, and there is not a bad person in the squad".

Should England reach their first World Cup final in 52 years, Southgate's heroes may well come up against world number one GERMANY in a repeat of the 1966 tournament.

It only seems fitting then, that during this summer's World Cup, the FA will be broadcasting an all access, interactive show, "The Lions' Den".

Both Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard claimed the reason they and the others who made up the so-called "golden generation" fell short at successive finals was they could not shake off their different club rivalries when they joined up with their England team-mates.




"The past can help us and inform us but it shouldn't shape us and we've got to be our own team".

"I've talked before about there being a disconnect between the supporters and the team and I've felt that there's different ways to bridge that".

"Ultimately we know we'll be judged on results but we have to focus on the processes", he said.

The course is actually only a three-hole course, so the mathematicians among the England squad will realise they'll need to play the loop six times.

"There was a clear shift in the identity of the team, we went to a back three and people have been warmed by that, not only the young players in this squad, but the young players in the system, the success with the junior teams".

"So, there's a balance of how much you think you need physically, and how much mentally the players, do they want another game?"

With the World Cup getting underway on Thursday, England fans can start dreaming of their road to glory at Russian Federation 2018.
