England, Southgate: “our second half, but equal right”

ENGLAND, SOUTHGATE: After the match against Italy the England manager Southgate spoke in an important way about the match.


The press conference of Gareth Southgate. From the press room at Wolverhampton’s Molineux Stadium, the England coach will comment on the match against Italy played tonight.

23.30 pm – The press conference begins: “In these four games we want to check the condition of all the players in view of the World Cup. After the game against Germany we had to make an important turnover and as I said yesterday we wanted to win and therefore the draw is a disappointment, but the fact remains that we created 2-3 great goal chances that we were unable to transform. And in this type of competition, when you face such strong teams, you shouldn’t waste. We managed the dribble much better in our part of the pitch than in the other matches ”.

How did Ramsdale appear to you?
“Calm and in control, especially when he was in control of the ball.”

“Very calm, his speed is a quality that we need and it is very important to us”.

“Very organized, he handled game changes well.”

What can you tell us about Abraham?
“It was very important, we only took it off because we wanted to rotate the attackers and we wanted to unlock the game. He played for the team and I liked that ”.

Grealish played the starter, did he do enough?
“We saw during the match what a player he is, the control he has of the ball puts his opponents in difficulty. He also had a chance and the others, besides Kane and Sterling, should score more ”.

You are bottom of the table, how important is it to win against Hungary?
“If we want to win the group we have to win on Tuesday and we have to do it in front of our fans. The group schedule penalized us, as we faced two difficult away matches and then we came here without an audience. On Tuesday the public will give us that extra something that will help the team ”.

Only Kane and Sterling score, what needs to be changed?
“At the moment we are sending the ball to the right areas and in the opponent’s trocar it is the quality of the game that makes the difference. Tonight the game was partly a disappointment, but in any case we created chances against Italy which is a very organized team, I am satisfied with how we managed the pressing of the Azzurri. We had more ball possession than the other times, it was positive, but having ball possession is not the same as winning ”.

How did you judge Italy’s performance?
“The draw was correct, England were the dominant team in the second half but they defend well and have a goalkeeper as good as Donnarumma”.

Can you get Foden back?
“It is difficult to recover him, we will try tomorrow but I have to be realistic and pragmatic and it will be difficult for him to return to the field. We haven’t had him available recently, but he’s a very important player for us. “
