The Three Lions manager penned an inspirational message to supporters after Euro 2020 was postponed until next summer and hit the right tone with his words. England Vs Croatia Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.
They are only words, carefully crafted, probably redrafted a few times and a while in the making. But, if you ever doubted Gareth Southgate was a natural-born leader, then read and re-read the message he sent to England fans on Friday.
Only, it was not just to England fans, it was to the country. It was to individuals and families already struggling to cope with this extraordinary crisis.
The standing gag is that Southgate would make a better Prime Minister than Boris Johnson. It is becoming less of a whimsy and more of an undeniable fact by the day.
If you have not seen his wonderful missive, and you can guarantee it was all his own work, not put together by advisers, dig it out.
In it, and referring to Euro 2020, Southgate says we should not think another moment about the postponement of the competition and he is right. Just as we should not think another moment about the suspension of the Premier League, EFL and all football.
We should not think another moment about whether Liverpool will eventually be crowned champions, whether Leeds will come up, Aston Villa go down or Crewe be promoted from League Two.
We should not think another moment about the fate of this season’s Champions League or Europa League or FA Cup.
We should not think another moment about who our club might sign or sell.
He says: “Now is clearly not the moment for us to take center stage. The heroes will be the men and women who continue working tirelessly in our hospitals and medical centers to look after our friends and families.”
They would not receive the individual acclaim, but we all know there, importance is beyond anything we do on the pitch. Perfectly put. But the England team and every national team in this land and beyond will have an importance when something akin to routine existence resumes.
When the England team is causing highs and lows of emotion, as it did at World Cup 2018, people will know they are back to some sort of normality. Football fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets from our global event ticket sales market.
For wise, compassionate, meaningful words on the almost unimaginable situation this country, and the world, finds itself in, Southgate’s message is worth revisiting time and time again.
To play in a European Championship next summer will still be possible for all of our squad, he says. I feel sure that, when that moment comes, I will never have been prouder to be the leader. And England will never have been prouder to have Southgate as its leader.
