Gareth Southgate to remain as England boss, confirms FA

  • Posted on: 29 January 2023

The England Football Association have confirmed that Gareth Southgate will remain as the coach of the national team until 2024 amidst a lot of speculation that he would be replaced following a disappointing World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
