‘Euros might be my last chance to win with England’

Gareth Southgate, the manager of the England national football team, has hinted that Euro 2024 might represent his final opportunity to secure a trophy for his country.

Having assumed the managerial role in 2016, the 53-year-old has guided England to notable successes, including the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, the final of Euro 2020, and the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

While Southgate’s contract is set to expire in December, the Football Association is eager to retain him for the upcoming 2026 World Cup in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

However, Southgate revealed to German publication Bild that his tenure could hinge on the outcome of Euro 2024 in Germany. He emphasized that failure to secure a trophy in this tournament could mark the conclusion of his time as England’s manager.

In his own words, “If we don’t win, I probably won’t be here anymore. Then it might be the last chance. If we want to be a big team and I want to be a top coach, then you have to deliver in the big moments.” This statement underscores the significance Southgate places on achieving success at the highest level of international football.
