England's Gareth Southgate: Young squad 'not the finished article' yet

Gareth Southgate admits concerns over as many as three players ahead of Sweden

They have done so off the back of a change in attitude, implemented by their 47-year-old coach.

Meanwhile, here is what Gareth Southgate said.

Fast forward a few weeks, and Gareth Southgate's team are in the final four of the World Cup, four of their 11 goals coming from corners.

Yet England are now one win from a World Cup final.

"It was three-and-a-half minutes from the penalty being given to when Colombia eventually left him alone", Southgate told reporters. He believes Kane's "mentality" mimicked that of Wilkinson, who famously kicked England to glory at the Rugby World Cup in 2003. Like an adolescent boy copping his first formative snog, we're not sure if it's meant to feel like this, but bloody hell does it feel good. The highest paid player in the world sparkled at times on the field, scoring twice, but left the tournament marked mostly by his theatrics on the field. "We are buzzing now", he said.

"We even had the opportunity after the break to draw level, but we failed to do so".

"We want to keep making that history".

But by the end, it looked like she was up against a wall she nearly crossed, but couldn't as she couldn't find the final toehold. Makarova's old habits came back to haunt her once more - struggling at the sight of the finishing line.

"This here today just shows you what fans we have got".

If there is an appetite for it back home - which quite frankly from the pictures I'm seeing there probably is - then why not?

"This helped us to overcome them". They are really important messages for us.

The defender watched England from the stands at Euro 2016, and he admitted that he has not yet fully come to terms with everything he has achieved in the last two years. We are not the finished article and we do not have world-class players yet, but we have young players who are prepared to be fearless on the ball and have shown a real mental resilience.

"The number of touches you have with your feet is exceptionally high in the modern game, especially European and global football.His speed around the goal today, the saves he made at critical times, and generally his distribution, there were some excellent moments".

"The pitch is always going to be the same, same lines, same goal height, it is just a game of football". "We've got that in the bank and we know we can come through the other side".
