England begin their Euro 2024 qualification campaign with a double header of big matches this month, up against Italy and Ukraine.
Gareth Southgate’s future has been under scrutiny following the Three Lions’ quarter-final exit at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but the former defender has resisted calls to resign as he tries to plot his way to the next major tournament.
Southgate’s return to the knockout stages at all three major tournaments during his tenure has earned the 52-year-old a solid base of support, but Euro 2024 is likely to be his swansong as England head coach.
Loyalty to certain players has been a key part of Southgate’s England strategy since taking over in 2016, but he could refresh his options for the upcoming qualifiers.
