- Relegated England end group campaign with Germany draw
- Southgate: ‘We have talked about how the shirt feels’
Gareth Southgate has admitted some of his younger England players felt the weight of the shirt during a high‑stress Nations League get-together.
The manager was the focal point for criticism after the 1-0 defeat against Italy in Milan last Friday, the travelling fans booing him at full time. The result had followed the 4-0 home defeat against Hungary in June when Southgate was also jeered – the final tie in a sequence of four, which started with the away loss against Hungary and took in draws with Germany and Italy.
