SPORTS| ‘Proud’ Southgate feels he has proved England point

Gareth Southgate still would not express his wish to be given the England job on a permanent basis despite feeling he has proved his worth following Tuesday’s 2-2 friendly draw with Spain.

The former Middlesbrough boss guided England to seven points from three World Cup qualifiers – including a 3-0 victory over fierce rivals Scotland – before a dramatic late Spain comeback at Wembley denied him a third win from four.

Isco’s equaliser arrived in the sixth minute of stoppage time when only five had been signalled, but Southgate felt his players would learn more from the draw than in victory.
