“We are delighted to share the news that Southgate has decided to retain his position as national team manager and will lead the team at Euro 2024,” said FA CEO Mark Burlingham. We have been supported by 2024 Euros, and our plans for Euro 2024 have just begun.”메이저놀이터
Southgate’s original contract period was until December 2024, but when England was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, some ‘early hardships’ were raised.
However, the FA and coach Southgate decided to continue their partnership.
Even before the association’s official announcement, foreign media had already predicted Southgate’s stay based on the message of officials familiar with English football.
AFP reported that day, “England was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Qatar, but the English Football Association will continue to entrust the national team to Southgate until 2024.”
Coach Southgate took the helm of the England national team from September 2016 and finished fourth in the 2018 World Cup in Russia and runner-up in Euro 2020.
Qatar lost 1-2 to France in the quarterfinals and was eliminated.
Meanwhile, Germany, which was eliminated in the group stage of the Qatar World Cup, also agreed to guarantee coach Hansi Flick a contract until 2024.
