Southgate: ‘I’m very proud of my players’

England coach Gareth Southgate was proud of his players and said that it is incredible to be part of a moment like this.

Southgate redeemed himself from the semi-final he lost as a player at Euro 1996 and the World Cup in Russia three years ago.

“I am very proud of my players. It is amazing to be part of a moment like this. We knew it was not going to be easy. I told the players that we were going to have to show our resilience and recover from many situations. This is what we have done. tonight, “Southgate said.

The English coach spoke about the penalty that his captain, Harry Kane, missed against Kasper Schmeichel, although he later scored the rejection.

“There is no one you can trust more, but he was facing a great goalkeeper, whom he has faced many times,” said Southgate, who reaffirmed his faith in the team despite the fact that they started losing.

“I knew we would have our chances. That there would be many battles on the field, because the Danes are a great team. They have caused us a lot of problems and if we consider the time we have had to wait to get through a semi-final, with the limited international experience they have some players, they have done an incredible job. “

“The best thing is that we have given our nation a fantastic night and this trip still has four days left. We suffered in Moscow, in the semifinals of the World Cup and today we have compensated,” added the England coach.
