Concerns linger for Southgate’s England ahead of World Cup


AP Sports Writer

The growing number of Southgate’s critics will argue the chaotic 12-minute period from the 71st when England scored three goals from three shots to move into a 3-2 lead simply papered over the cracks. The truth might be somewhere in between but the issues are mounting for Southgate. Not least because key England players aren’t getting enough minutes at club level.
