Southgate had two managerial roles prior to being appointed England manager in 2016.

Russia Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called the team's performance "magnificent", saying the tournament would change the face of football in the host nation.

After needing a last minute goal from Harry Kane to dispatch Tunisia 2-1, England then dismantled Panama 6-1 to seal their progression to the last 16.

"It's all there, it's all apparent and we've just got to prepare them as well as we can for the game".

"The players have a voice, too. Maybe that's because they are quite young and have their careers still in front of them".
