The Federation of football of England has announced the appointment of Gareth Southgate head coach of the Three lions.
Contract 46-year-old specialist is designed for 4 years, which include two cycles of major international tournaments – the world Cup 2018 and Euro 2020.
“I am very proud to be appointed Manager of the national team. However, I realize that to be appointed such a high position, and to justify their expectations of me are two different things. Ready to give everything to do their job successfully.
I enjoyed working with the team over the last four matches and in the team I see huge potential,” said the native of Watford in an interview with the official FA website.
Recall that Southgate was appointed as the interim coach of the national team after the controversial dismissal of Sam Allardyce, but in four games at the helm of the national team managed to get two wins, two draws than convinced the Federation to the appropriateness of his appointment to the post of main coach.
So, when Southgate team Three lions got two wins in the matches of the 2018 world Cup qualifier against Malta (2-0) and Scotland (2:0), also having played a goalless draw with the team of Slovenia. In the friendly match against Spain English only at the last minute missed the victory (2:2).
