Southgate for Three Lions triumph in Spain

Gareth Southgate congratulated England’s national team players for the courage shown in a 3: 2 victory against Spain in a match of UEFA Nations League on Monday. He added that such a success as a guest against one of the leading football nations can serve his team invaluable experience that will help in the next games.

He told BBC radio 5 live:

“We really showed some quality and a good mentality to play out of their pressing. Spain are very aggressive in the way they press. All our players, right through the team, were brave enough to play the way we wanted to play.

“It’s fine to have an idea of how you want to play but to do it is a huge credit to them.”
