Southgate stands by his approach


Southgate stands by his approach

England boss Gareth Southgate has vowed to stick to his guns after seeing his side beaten 3-1 by the Netherlands in their Nations League semi-final in Guimaraes.

The Three Lions led 1-0 at half-time thanks to a Marcus Rashford penalty, but the Dutch responded to level through Matthijs de Ligt 17 minutes from time, before extra-time saw a Kyle Walker own goal and a Quincy Promes strike condemn England to defeat.

Both goals in the extra 30 minutes came from errors as Southgate's side tried to play out from the back, but he still has no doubts that this approach is the right one to take.

He told reporters: "We have to play out better, but I don't think it's a case of stopping what we are doing. The Dutch pressed really well and we weren't quite sharp (enough) in some of our decision-making.

"I'm asking my defenders to play in a way that puts them under huge pressure at the back.

"If we didn't play that way, we wouldn't have got to the semi-finals we've got to in the last year, and we'd never progress to being a top team.

"But we made too many mistakes in our final third, partly as a result of their pressure, but also by errors by us. The mistakes were from passes our players can play with no problem."

England now have to prepare for a third-place play-off against Switzerland on Sunday, with Holland facing hosts Portugal in the Nations League final later on in the day.

The Three Lions are 1/2 to clinch third place and are 10/11 to defeat the Swiss in 90 minutes, with England 15/2 to win 2-1 in normal time.
