England manager Gareth Southgate is expected to sign a two-year contract extension after his contract is due to expire after the World Cup in Qatar next year. His extension is set to keep him in charge until Euro 2024. England has been the in-form team in major tournaments recently reaching the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup before losing in the finals of Euro 2020. He had signed an improved four-year deal after the 2018 World Cup.

“We need a point. We’re not done and it would be wrong for my attention to be anywhere else but that. My job is to get this team into a World Cup and then we can look at everything else after that.” England manager Gareth Southgate said. “It’s an irrelevance for me. I’m under contract, I’m not out of contract and I’m very well supported here, I’ve said that all along. My focus is just getting this qualification done and everything else can wait.”

“Absolutely. We’ve got some fabulous players to work with and we’re a competitive team. Those opportunities in life don’t come around too often so I’m hugely proud to do the job and I’m massively proud of the performance tonight.” he added. “I and a lot of the lads love Gareth. We want him to stay as long as possible. But it’s his personal decision, we’ll back him whatever he does. We’ll enjoy tonight and let’s get one more win on Monday then we can enjoy what has been a fantastic year.”
