Gareth Southgate has stated that he will remain in charge of England for the 2022 World Cup, but that he needs time to reflect before signing a new contract. Southgate and his players were heartbroken at Wembley on Sunday after they were defeated on penalties by Italy in the Euro 2020 final.
Following a World Cup semi-final participation in 2018, the FA wants to offer the 50-year-old a new contract after he led the Three Lions to their first major final in 55 years.
Southgate, however, stated after England’s defeat that now is not the time to consider his future beyond next year’s tournament in Qatar.
‘I don’t think it’s the right moment to think about anything right now,’ he added.
