England to learn from previous mistake after Kosovo match – Southgate

England to learn from previous mistake after Kosovo match, England must tighten up at the back by learning from “ridiculous mistakes” during their 5-3 Euro 2020 qualifying win over Kosovo on Tuesday, manager Gareth Southgate has said.

Kosovo took the lead after 35 seconds following a mistake by defender Michael Keane and, although England responded with five goals in the first half, they endured a nervy finish to the game after conceding twice in the second half.

Goals from Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane and a brace for Jadon Sancho highlighted England’s attacking might but Southgate was less than pleased with his backline.

“It was bizarre. The outstanding features and poor features are apparent to everybody,” Southgate told reporters.

“Poor individual mistakes, a poor start. I like the way we showed the composure to recover from that initial mistake and our use of the ball throughout the first half was excellent.
“The small period after halftime: ridiculous mistakes, poor decisions, lack of covering back. We made the game uncomfortable for ourselves.

There were mistakes that were concerning … they were such basic errors … that you have to learn from.”
England lead Group A with 12 points and can qualify for the finals of the tournament with a win away to the Czech Republic in their next game on October 11.

Separately, FA technical director Les Reed said it would be difficult to retain Southgate’s services if the former England international decides to manage in the Premier League.

Southgate guided England to the semifinals of the World Cup in Russia last year and third place in the Nations League in June, making him a sough-after coach.
