Why England won’t win the Euros this summer under Gareth Southgate ..

Posted by

It’s been nearly 60 years since England have won a major tournament, they came all so close in 2021 when they went one nil ahead against Italy at Wembley only to lose on Penalties in the end to the Azzuri side.

England are a lot of people’s favourites for this tournament, but having watching them struggle to get past Serbia on Sunday night. It’s now clear that Gareth Southgate is not the right man to lead England to glory this summer.

People have questioned the former Middlesbrough defender in the past but now it’s more than clear that the 53 year old lacks the courage to make the big calls during the game when the changes are needed most.

England take on Denmark next on Thursday night and I would not be surprised if the Danish beat the English in Frankfurt. Quinnbet Coupon Code will have the best odds for the match ..

If you look at Gareth Southgate’s past with England thus far .. He has certainly improved the moral and attitude in that English group, for years it seemed that none of the English players enjoyed playing for the national team and club rivalries were never put aside when in camp.

But has Southgate produced when it was needed and he made the right calls at the right time? That game against the Italians three years ago was a prime example of the student vs the teacher in Southgate vs Roberto Mancini. The former Manchester City manager made the right calls at the right time and outwitted Southgate to take the European trophy back to the leg of Europe.

Three years before that in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Southgate and England had the easiest run ever to the semi-finals. With all due respect to Tunisia and Panama, if a team/country like England can’t beat them .. Panama it was their first time ever making it to the World Cup and largely qualified due to their qualification route rather than their team.

Southgate knows this is the end and anything less than England going all the way in this tournament will not be good enough for the English supporters.

Will England do it? Will they finally end 58 years of hurt at major international tournaments? They certainly have the quality in their ranks, but I doubt they have the right man tactically in leading the Three Lions. It’s going to. make for an interesting watch and it’s a tournament that is wide open!

Prediction to go all the way .. Germany.
