England set record
Despite failing to pick up the win vs North Macedonia, Gareth Southgate praised his side’s display on Monday:
“I thought the performance was good. The mentality was excellent. We played well, and totally controlled the game,” he stated.
“Difficult with the way they defended and the pitch — not easy to get the perfect final pass. I thought there were some excellent performances within the game.”
Elsewhere, it has been revealed that this England side made history on Monday, even though they only secured a draw.
England have now gone a calendar year unbeaten for only the fourth time in the last 50 years. Their record (W8, D2) is better than the previous in 2011 (W6, D3), 1994 (W4, D2) and 1989 (W5, D5).
