England must win World Cup to banish memory of Euro 2020 final loss, says Southgate

The Three Lions boss has challenged his players to use their defeat to Italy as motivational fuel to go all the way at Qatar 2022

Gareth Southgate says England must win the World Cup to banish the memory of their Euro 2020 final loss.

England came agonisingly close to winning their first major trophy since the 1996 World Cup at this summer's European Championships, making it all the way to the showpiece at Wembley only to suffer a penalty shootout defeat.

Southgate says the best way for the Three Lions to put that disappointment behind them is to pull together and focus on qualifying for Qatar 2022, with their next Group I clash against Hungary at Puskas Arena on Thursday night.
