Glen Johnson Exclusive: Southgate Has England On The Right Track

Glen Johnson Exclusive: Southgate Has England On The Right Track

Former England international Glen Johnson has praised the work Gareth Southgate has done as Three Lions boss – and claims the 51-year-old can lead the nation to glory. Since becoming England manager in 2016, Southgate has taken the Three Lions to a World Cup semi-final, third place in the Nations League and a European Championship final. However, two defeats against Hungary and a four-game winless run have sparked doubts over his position, ahead of the World Cup this winter. Johnson, though, has dismissed any criticism aimed at the England boss and is confident that he can secure silverware.

Southgate Praise

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “He [Southgate] has done a great job. The lads are enjoying playing for England again and he’s got a great squad. 

“After getting to a final and a semi-final, I think they are on the right track and age is on their side, so I don’t see why they can’t take things a step further and win something.”

Strength At Right-Back

An area of the pitch in which England are especially blessed with talent is at right-back – Johnson’s old position.

And the 37-year-old feels Southgate should use either Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold or Chelsea’s Reece James, depending on the opposition facing the Three Lions.

“It's difficult to pick one [of Alexander-Arnold or James] over the other because they’re both good at different things,” he said. 

“Trent is good over dead balls and is a threat going forward, but I would say Reece James is a better defender – so I would say it's a great option as you could play them both depending on the game. 

“If you are up against a team that will sit back you would probably go with Trent, but if you’re about to play a game where you will be under the cosh a bit then you might want to play Reece. I think it’s a good idea to have both.”
