'If It's Football, It's Vital'

U20s - Southgate Progress Was Pleasing

England U21 manager Gareth Southgate has said he was pleased with the U20s for their progress in the Toulon Tournament, but he was less pleased with our performance against Colombia last night.

It was another game we slightly dominated - but it was scrappy, but didn't give ourselves enough of a lead to capitalise on, and we came out with another draw, but for Southgate, he feels that had we performed better then it would've made the difference to the result.

Speaking to theFA.com following the game that did see us through to the third/fourth play off match, he explained.

'The lads are a bit disappointed because they feel they should play better. But sometimes when the conditions are like that, it's so hard to play the passing game that we want to and they had to do what was necessary to get the result. We just had to manage the conditions.'

With changes being made, Southgate has now given his squad at least two starts each in the competition so far, so on that basis he more than believes it was worthwhile England re-entering for the first time since 2005, and he's now looking forward to the Play Off game.
