England’s Team Manager Gareth Southgate wants to fight an old curse for success at the World Cup in Qatar. Already early early the 51-year-old leaves the penalty shootout at the Vice European Champion. “We discussed various details with the players, in which we can improve for the World Cup title. These include the penalty,” Southgate said in front of the international match on Tuesday against the Ivory Coast. Ticker Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) is the only player who regularly shoot penalty in his club. “We can not only put on the fact that the players already practice that in their clubs and then are ready,” Southgate said. England had lost the EM final against Italy with 2: 3 in penalties. In Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, three players failed the nerves. Southgate itself missed the decisive penalty in the EM semifinals in 1996 against the later European champion Germany.
