England manager Gareth Southgate banking on youth to bring future glory

first_imgEngland manager Gareth Southgate has said that he will continue to select younger players to bring glory in the future.Southgate, under whom, England reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russia earlier this year, said that he will select players who can adapt to his tactics and preferred formations.The England side in Russia was a relatively unknown side and Southgate told reporters ahead of Saturday’s Nations League match against Spain that he plans to retain the policy of promoting youth players.”We looked through different players over the last couple of years and decided, because of the way we want to play and the type of players we want to work with, that there are some guys who didn’t fit that model,” Southgate told Sky Sports.”We’re into a fresh cycle of probably not going back to players who have been in before and that we’ve had a good look at,” the former England under-21s coach added.”So the next group that we’re looking at are probably coming through our younger age groups.” England will face Spain in the UEFA Nation’s League on Saturday (Reuters Photo)Southgate has also been forced to look for fresher options after the experienced duo of defender Gary Cahill and striker Jamie Vardy ended their international careers last week.England won the Under-20 World Cup, the Under-17 World Cup and the Under-19 European Championship last year and Southgate has continually pushed for regular game time for some of those players in the Premier League.advertisementEngland will be without the injured Adam Lallana and Raheem Sterling for the Spain clash as well as the friendly against Switzerland at Leicester’s King Power Stadium on Tuesday.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
