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.”
