England: Gareth Southgate takes responsibility for Hungary loss

England boss Gareth Southgate took responsibility for the 4-0 loss to Hungary but urged the supporters to stay with the team ahead of the World Cup at the end of the year. The loss to Hungary meant the Three Lions have not managed a win in their four Nations League games. After the game, the team was met with boos and chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” from the Molineux crowd.

“We picked a young team with energy and when the game started to go against them, it started to look that way. That’s my responsibility in the end,” England boss Gareth Southgate said. “I said to the players, our four matches is my responsibility. I have to balance looking at new players, and the rest players. We couldn’t keep flogging out our experienced players. It was an important experience for lots of young players in these games. We’ve learned a lot in the German and Italy games. Hungary is a good side and we knew that. I gave them too much to do tonight.”

“We’ve broken a huge number of records and tonight we’re on the other side of it. I don’t think it [the recent poor run] is painful – because we haven’t been at full strength. We need to be at full strength to win matches and we’ve seen that for several teams across Europe in the Nations League,” he added. “Tonight’s a difficult night. I’ve watched as a kid and a player, and I recognize those difficult times. But you can’t just be at the front when things are good, and not stand up when things get tough. I knew the role before I took it. It’s happened in ten days, not eleven months. But I’ve seen other England managers go through that – the great Bobby Robson was, and look how he was judged in the end.”
