Gareth Southgate has turned to technology in a bid to keep England’s chances of winning Euro 2020 on track. The Euros have been put on hold until next summer due to the coronavirus crisis that has forced all top-level football to be suspended until further notice.
But this has not stopped Southgate from continuing with his preparations for the tournament, even though it would not kick-off for another 15 months. The Three Lions boss has been spending his time in lockdown watching countless hours of video footage of England’s opponents.
Southgate asked members of the FA’s technical team to send him as much film as possible on rival teams and players to his £4m, Grad I luxury mansion in Swinsty, on the outskirts of Harrogate.
With St George’s Park closed due to the pandemic and set to be offered to the NHS for possible use in the battle against the virus, Southgate has been confined to his home office for long spells. Football fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets from our global event ticket sales market.
But he has been determined to use the time to study the strengths and weaknesses of the teams England will face in the group stages – as well as the elite European sides he will have to outwit if he is to conquer Europe next summer.
A source said: “He has used the lockdown as an exercise to focus on certain projects, and one of them is to watch hours of footage of teams, players and the elite teams standing between England and winning the Euros.”
England have been drawn against Croatia and the Czech Republic in the group stages, as well as one more side from the play-off games still to be decided.
But Southgate knows the real test of England’s credentials will come against the likes of France, Holland, Belgium, and Spain, and has been keen to do as much homework as possible on these four powerhouses.
Southgate, who has also spent time running and walking his dogs, is expected to take a 30 percent wage cut this week.
The England boss will give up almost £1m of his £3m-a-year salary as part of the FA’s attempt to cope with the financial impact of the pandemic.
