FIFA WC: Here’s what England manager Gareth Southgate said before the game
No. It’s never easy. We have the strength in depth and you always think of the opponent as well. But we were on a good path and I think we had to stay on that path. Our midfield has been very important, and you can lose a player in there with three-back systems. We think we have to put pressure on France and try to reduce the supply, and we will have an extra player higher up the pitch. We need men on the ground. These great evenings, you have to stand up, you have to go all the way to get a result. We are playing well, we have confidence. It will be a huge test for that, but it’s great to come into the game feeling the same way we do. These nights are when everyone remembers where they are, and we hope we can give everyone at home another brilliant night to remember.
