An emotional literacy and willingness to take on challenges outside football has been developed by Gareth Southgate
The England team have had a busy week. Championing year 7 school kids, engaging in LGBTQ+ allyship, sharing mental health advice with fans and continuing their stand against racism, it’s been nonstop. Fortunately they still found time to beat Germany in a knockout match for the first time since 1966 and on Saturday face Ukraine in the quarter-final of the Euros. The trophy is only three wins away.
The scenes of gleeful carnage inside Wembley on Tuesday, when fans and players bounced off one other’s enthusiasm, suggested a communion that has not always been evident when it comes to the national side. Think back to the 2010 World Cup, and Wayne Rooney snarling: “Nice to see your own fans booing you” into the camera.
