England's Gareth Southgate: Young squad 'not the finished article' yet

Former England global Gary Neville, who was assistant to Roy Hodgson when they were knocked out by Iceland in last-16 at Euro 2016, felt the current pool of players have shown great maturity throughout the tournament in Russian Federation.

After England made it through to a first World Cup semi-final for 28 years, inevitably there were wild celebrations from long-suffering fans.

It put England in good stead in Russian Federation and the long term, too, albeit there are still hurdles to overcome.

Either hosts Russian Federation or Croatia are all that stands between England and a first World Cup final since they won the tournament on home soil in 1966.

England's quarter-final win sparks wild scenes on streets
Southgate credited his team's success on their willingness to come together to form a cohesive unit. It didn't take long for the England players to take to social media to celebrate their win.


Despite reaching the semifinals, Southgate was keen to stress that his players were still developing.

England captain Harry Kane spoke of a "band of brothers" when he addressed the press on the eve of England's 2-0 win over Sweden in the Samara Arena on Saturday afternoon.

"We don't know who we play yet".

"We do have some good players, and they need opportunities to play".

The Mirror says FA chiefs are confident Southgate will snub any big club job if he is head-hunted after the World Cup.

"It's quite unusual for me to witness all the hype and the crowds and how excited they are because that's what it must have been (like) in Italia 90 when we got to the semis", he explained.

"I don't think we would have seen the likes of (John) Stones and (Harry) Maguire playing in the way that they did in the past".

"That for me is quite symbolic and why I joined the England FA five years ago because I believed that was possible".
