Gareth Southgate: ‘Let Germany defeat be a warning for England’

  • Who wins Group G if England and Belgium draw

Alexander-Arnold has had an incredible 12 months, rising from relative unknown to starting a Champions League final and making England's World Cup squad.

The presence of veterans like Gianluigi Buffon and Fabio Cannavaro and that of Marcello Lippi on the bench could not prevent Italy from being humbled in the group stage as they failed to win any of their matches.

Croatia has been a team that just hasn't gotten the proper amount of respect on the global stage.

England manager Gareth Southgate hailed his side's meeting with Colombia in the World Cup last 16 as their biggest match "for a decade" after losing to Belgium last night.

When Baloy made his full global debut back in February 2001, Panama had a long way to travel to get to where they are now: in Russian Federation 2018 with a squad featuring a clutch of young players with very bright futures ahead of them. "We've not won a knockout game since 2006", he said.




Southgate made the bold decision to leave captain and tournament top scorer Harry Kane, who had scored five goals in the first two matches against Tunisia and Panama, on the bench and he did not bring the Spurs striker on. Opposite them, teams like Spain, Croatia, and England were dealt what looks like a much easier path to the final, as long as they can take care of business in their opening matches.

In Iran's 1-0 win over Morocco in the first few days of the competition, it took an own goal from Aziz Bouhaddouz to break the deadlock in injury time, while Uruguay edged Egypt with a Jose Gimenez strike in the 89th minute.

A second-placed finish for England would mean Sweden are potential opponents in the quarter-finals, should England get past a last-16 game against Japan, Colombia or Senegal. "We are in the fortunate position", Southgate said.

"We have no idea who, when or where we will play", he said.

"Everyone's seen the level that we've been playing at and we've got to keep improving". That would mean we top the group and then we can move forward. "But everyone understands - in the dressing room and in the group - what we're trying to do".
