Gareth Southgate to continue as England manager through Euro 2024

Gareth Southgate will be staying on as the England manager until the 2024 Euros. This will see him become the longest-serving manager in the history of the country, after leading the Three Lions into the quarter finals of the 2022 World Cup

His side came up short against eventual runners-up, France, but the English FA were impressed with what they saw. And as a result, they have decided that he is still the right man to watch over the first team. 

Gareth Southgate to continue as England manager 

“We are delighted to confirm that Gareth Southgate is continuing as England manager and will lead our Euro 2024 campaign. Gareth and [assistant manager] Steve Holland have always had full support, and our planning for the Euros starts now,” and official statement from the FA read. 

England have a very exciting young squad, with the likes of Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka, Reece James, Mason Mount, Declan Rice and Marcus Rashford coming up. 

Now, it remains to be seen whether they can turn their fortunes around in time for the Euros. They will be facing defending European champions Italy in the qualifying stages itself, in a repeat of the 2020 finals which they lost on penalties. 

Fans have been divided in their opinion about Gareth Southgate, but his trust in young players and ability to lead the team deep into major tournaments remains unquestioned.
