Euro 2020: Gareth Southgate

Gareth Southgate has urged his players to perform under pressure and beat Germany in the round of 16 at Euro 2020. He revealed that the players will be remembered for a long long time if they can advance into the quarter-finals. Southgate had delivered the same message to the team prior to their last penalty shootout win against Colombia in the world cup. Wembley will play host to the tie with an expected 40,000 supporters expected to be in attendance.

“Every time you pull on an England shirt you have the opportunity to score a goal that will be shown forever and to create a bit of skill or to be involved in a match that lives in the memory, and that is the beauty of playing for your country,” Gareth Southgate said before their face Germany at Euro 2020. “If you think of all the big players in history, of course in European club football there are significant memories, but when you picture those great players it is normally in an international shirt that their biggest memories are formed.”

“It’s an incredible record really,” Southgate said. ”Something we have spoken about over the last four years is that this team doesn’t carry the baggage from previous eras, many of them weren’t even born when many of those things happened and it is an irrelevance for them,” he added. “It’s a real opportunity to progress to a quarter-final, albeit against a team with pedigree and experience, but it is a game we are looking forward to.”

England has struggled for goals in the Euros so far. They have managed to score just two goals in their three group stage games with their talisman Harry Kane yet to get on the scoresheet.
