Phil Foden Takes Responsibility for England's Euro 2024 Struggles

Posted : 04 July 2024

Phil Foden believes the responsibility for England's inconsistent performances at Euro 2024 lies with the players, expressing sympathy for manager Gareth Southgate. Southgate has faced intense criticism from fans and the media for his team selections and tactics, as England unconvincingly topped Group C and narrowly defeated Slovakia in extra time during the round of 16.

 

Foden emphasized the need for players to take accountability and become leaders on the field. He acknowledged that while the manager sets up the system and instructs them on how to press, it ultimately falls on the players to execute these strategies during matches. Foden highlighted the disconnect between their training instructions and their actual gameplay, noting that Southgate has consistently urged them to press high up the pitch.

 

Feeling sorry for Southgate, Foden stressed the importance of players stepping up and finding solutions when things aren't working. He mentioned that the team has discussed the issue and plans to address it by coming together and adapting their press during games. As England prepares to face Switzerland in the quarterfinals, Foden's call for greater player leadership aims to improve their performance moving forward.
