Gareth Southgate urges his English stars to forget penal mounds

& # 39; We'll park it aside & # 39 ;: Gareth Southgate urges his English stars to forget the Nations League play-off victory despite penalty heroics

  • England claimed bronze medals after winning their Nations League play-off
  • The men of Gareth Southgate beat Switzerland in their third place match on Sunday
  • The boss of Three Lions, however, has called on his team to continue with the success of the penalty

Gareth Southgate relentlessly ordered England to forget the Nations League medals, despite Sunday's dramatic win against Switzerland.

Jordan Pickford emerged as the hero of England in the third play-off game – scoring in the shoot-out before Josip Drmic & # 39; s attempt at sudden death was saved.

The heroic deeds of the goalkeeper saw that England left Portugal with a bronze medal – but Southgate told its players not to enjoy the performance.

& # 39; The medals were in the dressing room, I have not seen them yet & # 39 ;, said the director of England.

& # 39; It's really ironic. We have again had to make a play-off of third place and we don't even get them for our fans!

& # 39; But when I played against a few Liverpool players I used to play against, Joe Fagan threw the medals in the back of the bus and said: & # 39; Continue, if you have played enough games, take a & # 39 ;. That would summarize it for us.

& # 39; It is not to have any recognition, but we will park it to the side and look ahead.

We have reached a certain level, but it is not a level that we are satisfied with. We have to go again. They are a fantastic group to work with, you could tell by the mentality they showed for 120 minutes, but we have to keep getting better. We only settle for what we do. & # 39;
