You have to win every match - Southgate on England role pressure

Thu 09 June 2022 | 10:52

Southgate is trying to find the right squad for the World Cup.

England

manager Gareth Southgate has spoken of the intense pressure he is under and has claimed he will make changes to the squad for the next Nation League games.

The Three Lions drew 1-1 in their most recent match against

Germany

and will face

Italy

and Hungary in future matches. They are currently at the bottom of Group 3 of League A and Southgate have claimed they will be testing to find the best squad for the World Cup.

"You have seen right across Europe – France changed 10, Spain changed eight, Portugal changed seven.

"This is quite a unique set of games where teams are thinking about player welfare to a degree, freshness, but also they are preparing for a World Cup, because they know what’s coming and what they haven’t got in terms of friendlies ahead of the tournament.

“Harry [Kane] is… a phenomenal professional, the way he looks after himself. I’m not saying he’s going to get his desire to start all four games, by the way, because there’s also Tammy [Abraham] that we want to see perform as well."

Asked about how demanding his job is, the Englishman said:

"you have got to win every match".

"I know what I wanted from these games," he said. "I also accept that with England, you’re going to be judged, and you have got to win every match.

"But I’ve got to think a little bit differently to that and accept that if there is criticism, fine. 

"I have got to make the right decisions for the players, for the team, to try to improve the team and if that means criticism, then so be it. 

"If my decision-making is affected by that, then it’s something I am not going to be successful with."
