ENGLAND NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM MANAGER

Gareth Southgate has been officially appointed as the new selector of the English national football team on 27 September 2016. The forty-six-year-old expert on that duty  succeeded  Same Allardyce, who resigned. The popular "Big Sam" resigned after the affair that hit the English football.

Southgate temporarily led the  English national team in four games, featuring two wins and two draws. England under his leadership in qualifications for the World Cup in Russia in 2018, defeated Malta and Scotland, and played a draw with Slovenia, as well as in a friendly match with Spain. The English Football Federation (FA) signed a four-year contract with the new selector, valid until the European Championship 2020. He managed to place the team at the World Cup in Russia, and they went on the tournament without any great expectations. The FA said that the World cup 2018 “is a really important staging post for our development”. But as the World cup began English team the new manager and very promising generation of football players showed that the can play really nice football and not just to play but to win. After wins against Tunisia and Panama and defeat against Belgium in their World Cup group, Southgate's England side beat Colombia 4–3 on penalties in the round of 16 after a 1–1 draw on 3 July 2018 to claim his nation's first ever World Cup penalty shoot-out victory and a place in the quarter-finals. On 7 of July 2018, Southgate's England team beat Sweden 2–0 in the quarter-finals, with Southgate becoming the first England manager to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup since Sir Bobby Robson in 1990. On 11 July 2018, Southgate's England side suffered a 2–1 defeat to Croatia during extra time in the semi-finals. Despite the defeat Southgate received huge support from the public and from the FA as well. And he himself stated that this is a young team and that such a competition is good for their progress and he expects that this team will show its maximum in 2 years. Also because of the success he has shown at the World Cup, the FA is scrutinizing the possibility of offering him a new contract to keep Southgate on the bench of the national team and after 2020. Now England is playing in the new UEFA competition League of Nations and England didn’t have the best start because they lost against Spain on Wembeley. But despite this, the team receives huge support, as many are convinced that this is a team that will restore the glory of English football.

Gareth Southgate was born in Watford, and made his first football moves at Crystal Palace. Then continued his career at Aston Villa and in Middlesbrough. He ends his playing career in Middlesbrough in 2006 and his last match was UEFA League Cup Final against Seville. For England national team he has played 57 times and has scored twice. In 1996, England was playing the European Football Championship. The hosts came to the semifinals, they welcomed Germany, ready to retaliate for the tough defeat of the penalties six years earlier. As the sixth ball is taken by Gareth Southgate, he takes a shot, shoots and Andreas Kappke defends. It was the second defeat of England on penalties from the sixth in the 1990s and onwards, and Southgate was the one who was tragic. It was one sad moment that marked his international football career.

But we’re lucky that life writes unusual stories. Exactly 20 years later, the same Southgate sat on the English national team bench, and two years later he brought his team to the semifinals of the World Cup.
