England manager Gareth Southgate believes that the national team will be more competitive at the next World Cup in 2022. He said that the squad is a relatively young one and that they have learned a lot during the last World Cup in Russia.
Gareth Southgate said that it was a great achievement for Harry Kane to have ended up the tournament as the best scorer and that it will be a challenge for him to repeat it at the next World Cup in 2022.
The England manager said that the national team has a reputation of underperforming at big tournaments before and they have managed to shed this tag. He said that the team will now be focusing on the Euros in 2020 and will want to prove to the world that their performance at the last world cup was not a fluke.
Gareth Southgate said that the players are hungry and want to win games and that they are preparing themselves for this tournament. He said that this will be a great opportunity to introduce new players to the team and make sure that they will be ready for the World Cup 2022.
The England manager said that the next World Cup will be in Qatar and that the players will have to learn to play in high temperature. It is important that teams take this into account when preparing themselves so that the players get time to acclimatize themselves to this high temperature.
