Southgate to name final England squad TODAY, Kevin de Bruyne huge injury doubt for Euro 2020 after breaking TWO bones


Gareth Southgate has exclusively told SunSport he did not want the England job — because of the pressure of picking squads.

Southgate revealed: “A few years ago I didn’t want the job for that reason.

“Because I saw what it did to previous managers and their families. So when my kids were younger, I didn’t want them to experience that.”

Meanwhile, James Ward-Prowse has missed out on a place in England’s Euros squad.

SunSport understands Southgate told the Southampton captain of the heartbreaking news on Monday.

Free-kick expert JWP, 26, has six caps for his country, four of which have come this season.

He netted his first goal for the Three Lions in March’s 5-0 win over San Marino.

Finally, Gareth Bale has refused to rule out retiring after the Euros.

The Real Madrid ace and Spurs loanee said: “Obviously there’s been a lot of things written about whether I’m doing this and doing that.

“I don’t want to say anything that is going to cause any problems on what I am doing or what I am not doing. My focus is just on the Euros.

“When the Euros finishes for us then I will sit down and decide what I want to do.”
