43 BST Last modified on Tue 7 Jun 2022 23.54 BST Gareth Southgate felt England heeded his challenge to show they are a “top team” after coming back from a goal down, and a sloppy first three quarters of the game, to secure a respectable draw against Germany.And the dapper and mild-mannered head coach, Sepp Herberger, turned out to have been a Nazi.Harry Kane’s late penalty came amid a flurry of pressure and chances, with England’s tempo noticeably increasing after Jack Grealish’s introduction.it is incredibly complex".It was an improvement on Saturday’s flat defeat in Hungary and Southgate revealed he had thrown down the gauntlet to his squad before their outing in Munich.Apart from that.“We’ve had some good results at Wembley and wanted to come away from home and get a good result,” he said.31 BST Robert Page has said will have to find a club sympathetic to his needs if the Wales captain is to arrive at the World Cup in peak condition.

“It’s so important that we bounced back from a disappointing result.The defeat in Hungary was no surprise, an awkward, bruising game for a group of England players running on fumes and lactic acid.Asked if black players could now fear a racist backlash when they step up for penalties, the England manager said:"We're goosed then.We challenged the players that a top team doesn’t lose two on the bounce and they’ve responded to that in the right way.” Read more England wobbled after Jonas Hofmann’s 50th minute opener, which was well merited on the balance of play, and could have conceded again before turning the tide in the latter stages.It is that general sense of unease that seems to define this England team right now.Southgate was particularly critical of their passing during the first half but expressed his delight at the manner of their recovery." Southgate, who famously missed his own penalty in Euro 96, was speaking ahead of England's Nations League match on Tuesday with Germany.“To respond in the way they did was fantastic,” he said.Even the triumph of reaching a final last summer was transformed into a toxic event by the aftermath of defeat.“Clubs must be looking at them and thinking: ‘How can they do that for their country?’” Page said.

“I thought in the balance of the overall game [the equaliser] was well deserved.It’s an important sign for them as much as anything.England have played four competitive games against non‑filler opponents since the European Championship and won one of them.More on Gareth Southgate.[We have] seven or eight who got us to a World Cup semi-final, that’s why those players are so important to us because that core of the team put their bodies on the line for each other.On nights like this you have to do that to get a result.Southgate’s greatest gift as England manager has been tone, vibes, energy, clarity.” The spot-kick, awarded by VAR after Nico Schlotterbeck’s foul, was Kane’s 50th goal for England.“That is going to be his [Bale’s] difficulty, finding someone that will manage him.

“The finish is exceptional, isn’t it?” Southgate said.Are we reaching a place now where that feeling starts to turn bad? If so, it would be entirely undeserved.“The pressure at that moment, he trusts his technique, we have huge faith in him.Rightly the fact he’s got 50 goals will be the centre part of the story.There is frustration too with the non‑cavalier manner in which England have learned to win; and with the fact Southgate isn’t a lad or a chap or a bloke and instead has the manner of a popular and courtly provincial curate.But his all-round game, the way he led the line, the way he competed, the way he pressed from the front today, was exceptional.” Harry Kane (right) impressed his manager with his all-round game.Two semi-finals out of two after two in the previous half century.It is up to him and his family to decide on where is best for him to get in the right frame of mind for November, it’s going to be as simple as that, and it might even be as short term as that.

“At the start of the game, the challenge to the wide players is to attack, defend, try to score goals, a high tactical level and you’ve got to be spot on,” he said.One of the great misperceptions of Southgate’s time in charge, the stick most often used to beat him with, is the idea England have an unprecedented well of talent, an envy-of-the-world stock of players.“I think that’s an area Jack can get better at.” Topics.Would Jordan Pickford and Harry Maguire be starters for other major nations?
