EUROPEAN – “It is a defeat that I will carry with me for my whole life. For many I will always remain ‘that of the European’, even if I win the World Cup this year”, commented Southgate. “Our problem was to take the lead after two minutes in a tournament where we had conceded only one goal. We stopped pressing high and holding the ball. The 1-1 turned the psychology of the match upside down. […]. Personally I only coached 200 games in my career, against Italy it was my first final: I still have to learn a lot. “

Qatar is a country that has a different religion, it is complex: we must find the right balance. I believe that we must respect a country with a culture, religion and traditions different from ours. We have the possibility of being able to shed a light on some aspects that they can be improved. This is already a lot to be able to make a difference. “
