We want the squad to feel involved: Gareth Southgate

English Football manager Gareth Southgate has opened up about the challenges he faces while picking the team amidst a number of talented players. He revealed it feels as if he “commits a crime” when he releases the list of players who will play in games. He called the competition for the spots high and although it is a tricky situation for him, it is also “pleasing to see” such depth.

We want the squad to feel involved. It is important they know their value and can contribute; it wasn't a friendly against Andorra, there were qualification points at stake and I was really pleased with the quality of the performance as well as the application. I have a headache and commit a crime every time I pick a team. We have such strong competition for places; there were lots of players who did their own confidence and reputation the world of good the other day and that is pleasing to see. We can't be a team that has a day off. We want to keep consistency, and we've had that throughout this calendar year. Everyone has pride in putting the shirt on.
