Gareth Southgate Says England Need to Play Better

Despite England’s comfortable win over Germany last week, Gareth Southgate has made clear that the players need to play better. And there are concerns that Kane Maguire may not be fit for the upcoming game against Iran after having been withdrawn from the squad due to illness.

Harry Maguire’s injury scare affects England’s attacking potential

Earlier this month Harry Maguire suffered a suspected concussion during a match against Iran. He was later replaced by Eric Dier.

The Maguire incident has had a serious impact on the attacking potential of England. The team is now playing five games before a break for the World Cup.

The injured Maguire will miss England’s Carabao Cup clash against Aston Villa on Thursday evening and their match against the USA on Friday. Maguire’s injury could leave the World Cup place in doubt.

Maguire has been an integral part of England’s resurgence at international level and is set to play a major role in their hopes of winning the World Cup. But the player has also been the target of a lot of criticism.

He was the central figure in England’s successful run to the European Championship final last year, and was also named in the squad of the tournament. But Maguire hasn’t quite lived up to his billing in the Premier League this season. He’s had a troubled year at Manchester United, finishing sixth in the league.

Southgate’s performance against Germany

During two matches in the last week, Harry Maguire has been under scrutiny. The Manchester United player has made two errors that could seal England’s fate in the coming weeks. Despite these errors, it’s England’s fightback against Germany which has won the day.

The two games were played at Wembley, where the game ended in a draw. The result won’t deflect attention from the debate over Maguire’s future at the World Cup.

During the game, Southgate introduced a handful of substitutes, including Bukayo Saka and Mason Mount. Saka was a part of the move that sparked England’s fightback. He laid off a pass for Mount to latch onto. Mount then blasted a sweet first-time shot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

It’s not easy for a team to come from two goals down, but England made it work. It wasn’t just a matter of making the right substitutions. It was also about getting the right system right.

Southgate has said he wants to improve on the performance of his team’s last two games in the Nations League. He also praised the players for staying together during the matches. He believes the team’s battling spirit will prove useful heading into the World Cup in November.

Kane Maguire’s illness-related withdrawal from Iran game

Despite a brilliant performance against Iran, England defender Harry Maguire has been forced to pull out of the game. He suffered an apparent concussion and he went off early in the second half.

Maguire was playing well for the Three Lions, who dominated the game. He set up Bukayo Saka for England’s second goal, and helped England to a 6-2 win over Iran. He received the man of the match award.

Maguire was taken off in the 70th minute as a precaution. He was replaced by Eric Dier. He had a blurred vision and complained of feeling unwell. It was reported on social media that Maguire was under concussion protocol.

The England manager, Gareth Southgate, has now issued a positive update on Maguire’s injury. He said that Maguire was feeling unwell before the goal, and that he felt that he should be fit for the game against the United States on Friday.

Harry Maguire was a major player in England’s Euro 2020 semi-final last summer, and he played an important role in the England’s 6-0 victory over Belgium in the World Cup semi-final last summer. However, he has struggled for game time at Manchester United.

Southgate could revert to three at the back

Despite a disappointing defeat against Croatia in the semifinals, Gareth Southgate is considering switching to a three-man backline. The head coach believes the formation could offer England more creativity and better chances.

The back three system is ideal for England in major tournaments, but Southgate is still not ready to drop the four at the back that he has been using for the last six years. However, England have had success using three in major tournaments in the past.

The three at the back system helps England build a strong defensive shape. It also allows Southgate to play wing backs. This is particularly useful if England are playing against lower-tier teams.

However, it also means that England lack creativity. They have not scored an open-play goal since March’s 3-0 friendly win against Ivory Coast.

Southgate also wants England to shine up front. The goal of the three at the back formation is to give England security when they are playing testing games. It also means that England can be more creative in midfield.
