European Football Championship: England’s Guehi confirms: Everyone is behind Southgate

Rarely has criticism of Gareth Southgate been as loud as it has been in recent days. A regular player has now spoken out about the mood in the team ahead of the round of 16 match against Slovakia.

England’s central defender Marc Guehi cannot share the current criticism of Gareth Southgate and has explicitly defended the head coach after the weak European Championship preliminary round.

“He is fantastic for England. If you look at his record, it absolutely speaks for itself,” said Guehi at the Three Lions’ training camp in Blankenhain. In recent days, a debate has flared up again about Southgate’s destructive style of play and cowardly approach.

If the 2021 European Championship runner-up is eliminated in the knockout phase, the former professional’s exit after almost eight years is considered a done deal. “Everyone is behind the coach and we have a very close-knit group that is only focused on the next task. Everyone appreciates him, especially me,” said Guehi, who is a regular in central defense at the current tournament.

The 23-year-old follows Harry Maguire, who was dropped from the squad before the European Championships due to physical problems. England will face Slovakia in the round of 16 on Sunday (6 p.m./ZDF and MagentaTV) in Gelsenkirchen.
