‘Yes, his passport protects him from getting sacked’-Twitter reacts after Gareth Southgate says that he will be judged by WC results and nothing else
England football team ran through a heart-wrenching defeat at the hands of Italy in the ongoing Nations League. The Three Lions came under fire for their terrible performance against a relatively weakest Italian side.
Italy got their basics right as they dictated terms on the pitch whenever it mattered the most, unlike England who were clueless, more often than not. Giacomo Raspadori opened the scoring for Italy at the 68th minute.
His solitary goal was more than enough for Roberto Mancini’s side to cross the finishing line without any hiccups. On the other hand, England didn’t do much to pose a threat to the opposition. Gareth Southgate’s team had four shots on target but failed to find the net.
On the other hand, the hosts had three shots on target but ensured to get the job done. Having played six games, Italy are comfortably sitting on top of the points table with 11 points. They have won three games, played out for a draw twice and lost just once.
England football team are at the bottom of the points table. After England’s loss to Italy, fans took to their respective social media handles and lashed out at the manager for his tactics.
What did Gareth Southgate say?
Meanwhile, the manager himself broke silence amid criticism from across quarters. He made a bold statement adding that he is not foolish in the first place. The England manager further echoed that he will be judged on the results of the World Cup and nothing else.
The 52-year-old veteran manager Gareth Southgate also added that contracts are not at all relevant in football. He also conceded that if results are not really good enough for the team, then one has to admit that’s time to end a contract. He also highlighted that his contract is not protecting him in the first place.
