Jesse Lingard full of praise for Gareth Southgate leading England 'revolution'

It’s been incredible the best I’ve been involved in’- Belgium’s Martinez on Russia World Cup ‘It’s been incredible, the best I’ve been involved in’ - Belgium’s Martinez on Russia World Cup

Southgate's tactical experimentation that ended up with England lining up in a 3-5-2 formation has allowed both Lingard and Dele Alli to flourish side by side.

England have not won a penalty shootout since 1996, when they defeated Spain in the European Championship.

Marcus Rashford has insisted he would be prepared to take a penalty if England's last 16 clash with Colombia on Tuesday night ends in a draw after 120 minutes.

Southgate wore a navy blue three-piece suit from M&S at every England group game, despite sweltering summer heat in Russian Federation.

"That hasn't always happened for us as much as for (his) club up to this point but there is no doubt he has the ability and the techniques to do that".

"He's really impressed me since he has come in - he is a great player, he is physical, he is strong, he is good on the ball", he said.

In just two games, Harry Kane scored the first five goals of his World Cup career - and he's now five away from tying Gary Lineker's career England record of 10.

Any time spent watching Southgate's squad at close quarters reveals a contrasting camaraderie and Lingard feels this can work in the Three Lions' favour at a World Cup that continues to open up unpredictably.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has said the Russia 2018 World Cup is "the best he has been involved in" and that the tournament has given an "incredible image of the Russian people" and the country.




Things seem to be riding high for England with every bounce going their way while they sit and watch other top teams tumble out of the tournament.

FA technical director Ashworth has complied the dossier which reveals that previous England players have rushed into taking their penalties unnecessarily.

Statistics suggest that players have an 89 percent chance of scoring if the team's last two shootouts have been successful.

Ashley Young, who sat alongside Southgate at the press conference, missed a penalty himself during the Euro 2012 loss to Italy but would be confident enough to take another. "I think it's stupid not to practice, especially at this stage of the tournament", he said.

"I will be talking a lot with him between now and the game - and we will have a plan".

"I think everyone's happy, everyone has their own banter with each other", he continued.

He said: "Of course I will put my name forward".

"It's a youthful squad but we've still got those experienced players in there".

He said: "We have to focus on the game tomorrow".
