Steve Holland is unlikely to generate the same public buzz as two foreign managers who would be interested in taking over from Southgate, Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel, but that may not matter to the FA. Southgate’s contract runs until the end of 2024, after the European Championship, and his fate is in his own hands. The FA will beg him to stay even if England lose to France in Saturday’s Football World Cup quarter-finals, but won’t try to keep him in their deal if he decides it’s time to retire at the end of his third Major. responsible tournament.

The FA remain hopeful that Southgate will stay after the Football World Cup despite sources saying he is ready to leave, but the tournament is ending and the former defender has skillfully evaded attempts to pry him for clues about his future in Doha. The succession plan is not thought to be ready to go if Southgate gives the FA news they don’t want to hear and there are no set parameters for where the next England manager should come from, with foreign candidates likely to be considered.

While the public would support the FA nominating the best foreign coach like Pochettino or Tuchel, there would also be outside pressure to offer the job to the best English candidate, and right now it looks like Southgate’s assistant. Holland. Along with Southgate, Holland signed a new contract last year until December 2024 and the 52-year-old offered FA succession just 18 months before the European Championship in Germany.

Having only joined Chelsea in September, there is no chance for Graham Potter to quit his current job to take over from Southgate and the Blues’ owners remain loyal to him even if the club miss out on a top four finish and Champions League qualification in this season.

Eddie Howe is happy at Newcastle United, who will resume their season with European qualification dreams, leaving very little room to compete against the English in Holland. Pochettino and Tuchel have turned down a number of offers to return to management but would be open to an approach from the FA. Interestingly, Tuchel was said to have preferred the prospect of working in England over Germany before it was confirmed on Wednesday that Hansi Flick would stay.

It is not known whether Holland would want to become England manager, but he will almost certainly be given the opportunity to do so and receive Southgate’s backing. Southgate has previously insisted that Holland is much more than number two and is always careful to emphasize how they work together with England, using we rather than me when explaining decisions and choices.

“The Most Successful Coach in English Football”

Aside from a brief stint at Alexandra Crew in 2007, Holland has little experience as a solo manager, but has had tremendous success working under a variety of managers at Chelsea, first as a reserve manager and then as an assistant coach. with the first team.

During Holland’s time at Chelsea, when he worked under a host of top managers including José Mourinho, Rafa Benitez and Antonio Conte, the club won the Champions League, Europa League, Premier League title, FA Cup and League Cup.

Southgate said last year: I think he would have been the most successful manager in English football or an English manager, I can’t think of anyone who has won what he has won or had the same experience at club and international level. He is a first class operator.

Like Holland, Southgate did not have much experience as a top manager at a club prior to taking on the England job, but his work within the under-21 system and his understanding of how the association works and the requirements presented to positions in the national team, proved to be invaluable. .

The FA also underscored its commitment to giving access to coaches, not just players, with under-21 coach Lee Carsley introducing the England players to his latest rivals, Senegal, and head coaching Tim Ditmer delivering a scouting report from France.

If Southgate does decide that he has served his term as England manager after this Football World Cup, then it could very well be that the FA will decide between the top three candidates – the Argentine man, the German man and their own man, Holland.

Kyle Walker will not roll out red carpet for Kylian Mbappe

Kyle Walker says he won’t roll out the red carpet for Kylian Mbappe and England will have more to fear than just one player in the Football World Cup quarter-final against France. England will play France in the last eight in Qatar on Saturday (1900 GMT) in the first knockout match between the two countries in a major tournament. Mbappe, 23, is the tournament’s top scorer with five goals in four games.

“I understand what I need to do and that is to stop him, Walker, 32, said. Easier said than done, but I don’t underestimate myself, added the England right-back. He is a fantastic player in great shape. It will not be an easy task, but as a professional footballer you want to play against the best and I think he is one of the best, if not the best, in the world at the moment.”

Mbappé did not train with the rest of France on Tuesday, instead having a recovery session, with France defender Ibrahima Konate saying there was nothing to worry about.

“We didn’t talk about it at all. He was just resting, said the Liverpool centre-back. Walker and Mbappe are two great players. Walker is one of the best right backs in the world, I can’t wait to see this fight. None of the teams are underdogs or favorites.”

Walker is familiar with Mbappe as he met the Paris Saint-Germain striker for Manchester City in two previous Champions League campaigns. City have won two and lost one of the three meetings that both players have been involved in, and Mbappe admitted that the meeting with Walker was difficult for him. Of the Frenchman’s comments, Walker said: Good to hear, because he had a tough game against me. I know he’s the best player, but we don’t play tennis. It’s not a solo sport, it’s a team game.

You must respect him, but not too much. Yes, it will be a tough game, but the team cannot be just one person, he added. I’m not going to roll out the red carpet for him and tell him to score. It’s the Football World Cup, do or die. The Three Lions beat Senegal 3-0 in the last match of the 16th round, while France also progressed strongly, beating Poland 3-1.

Mbappe had scored twice in that win in France, and the striker was now involved in his side’s last seven Football World Cup goals. When we played Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, we didn’t just think about Mbappe, and on Saturday it was the same, Walker said.

“Yes, he’s a tool in their arsenal and a very good one but don’t underestimate their other players.”

England have kept three clean sheets in a row, one short of their national Football World Cup records in 1966 and 1982. single world championship. Having reached the final four in Russia in 2018 and the European Championship final in 2021, Walker believes there is no favorite as Gareth Southgate’s side prepare to face the defending champions.

“We’re playing football world cups, but we’re two good teams that will go head-to-head, Walker said. We have great talent. those who doubt are wrong”

England midfielder Jack Grealish says the team enjoys proving doubters wrong as they prepare for their biggest test against France. Following England’s 3-0 win over Senegal in the round of 16, midfielder Declan Rice said he didn’t think the team was getting the recognition it deserved and Grealish agreed with his teammate.

“I don’t think we ever get [to get enough credit] but sometimes it’s nice to not be outsiders and when people just don’t give you credit and you can keep proving them wrong, the Manchester City striker said. in an interview with the BBC. Sport. People talked a lot about us when we played in the US and we didn’t score. But we scored goals, kept a clean sheet and controlled the game, so we will go into [France’s] game with full confidence.”

After reaching the semi-finals of the 2018 Football World Cup and the final of Euro 2020, Grealish says the England team has a ‘special bond’ with the fans and thinks Three Lions fans now have the faith they lacked before.

“The fans come to every game thinking this team can beat whoever they’re playing against, he said. the best. But we know that if we get it right and play like we used to, we can beat anyone on our day and I think we’ve proven that in the last few games.”
