England going to get better: Southgate

Moscow, Jul 5 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 7/6/2018 12:33:25 AM IST
Gareth Southgate is juggling injury concerns ahead of a World Cup quarter-final that he hopes will prove to be just the start for his young side.
England secured their place in the quarter-finals by beating Colombia on penalties on Tuesday to set up a clash with Sweden on Saturday.
Southgate is not taking the occasion for granted but he believes it could become an increasingly regular occurrence given England’s talent.
“I think in terms of what they are capable of over the next few years, they are going to get better,” Southgate said.
“In this tournament we now have to assess all the injuries and see where we are. For sure, going to extra-time, I’m pleased we did what we did in the Belgium game even more because I think it’s an accumulation of fatigue making things more difficult.”
“But now we have a chance to reassess and it will be a tough game for sure. Because Sweden are often underestimated and I have real respect for Sweden. They are always more than the sum of their parts. Our historic record against them is another one we have to put right.”
“But I think we have always viewed them at our level and I don’t think that’s right because their tournament record is better than ours.”
