- England manager urged team to ‘be brave’ before extra time
- Trippier: ‘We’ve come a long way since the semi-final in Russia’
Gareth Southgate urged England’s players to “be brave” during his team talk before extra time in their historic win over Denmark, stressing that the chance to earn a place in the Euro 2020 final would come with patience.
The manager’s words were recounted by Kieran Trippier, who listened with his teammates as Southgate exhorted them to stay calm and continue trying to unpick their opponents in a heady atmosphere at Wembley. England had finished the 90 minutes well on top against a tiring Denmark side who had been forced back for long periods and they were told not to deviate from an increasingly convincing level of performance.
