Revealed: What Southgate told England players at half-time vs Wales

Marcus Rashford has revealed what Gareth Southgate told England players during half time of their clash with Wales.


England began Tuesday’s game fairly slowly. Harry Kane slipped in Rashford for a good chance nine minutes in.

Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden then linked up well late in the first half before the latter fired a shot over.

But other than that, England created little of note in the first 45. In the second, though, they scored three and probably could have had a few more.

And now, Rashford has revealed what Southgate said to them at half time:

“At half-time the manager said we’d played really but the one thing we can work better on is shots on goal,” Rashford told the BBC.

“I think we only had two or three in the first-half, so we wanted to work the keeper more. We wanted to keep getting in dangerous positions, which I thought we were doing in the first half but in the second half we made them count.”

Rashford added: “Moments like this, this is what I play football for, the biggest moments, the best moments.

“I’m really happy that we’re going through to the next round of the tournament and I hope we can build on this performance. I have massive ambition for this team and I think we play even better than what we showed today.”
