Nations League: Southgate, important to win but also to test

(ANSA) – LONDON, JUN 10 – The English coach, Gareth Southgate, announces new line-up on the eve of the third Nations League match, tomorrow night in Wolverhampton against Italy.

England are last in Group 3, with only one point after two games, but more than the current tournament Southgate confirms that they are thinking of the World Cup in Qatar. “For us at this moment it is important not only to win, but also to make all possible tests – he explained -, giving players the opportunity to play important matches such as the one against Italy. Only by using them against certain opponents can players give answers concrete “.

The Moulineux will be played in front of only two thousand children, due to the disciplinary action adopted by Uefa following the incidents that occurred before and during the final of Euro 2020, 12 months ago at Wembley. “It is an embarrassing situation for our nation, because many of the people who have created problems are not football fans,” Southgate said.
