Win over England not priority, says Martinez

Gareth Southgate GETTY England World Cup permutations Who could the Three Lions play in the knockout stages
Rita Gibson | 28 June, 2018, 23:55

Southgate was fulsome in his praise of the England faithful that did courageous some troubling warnings and off-putting logistics to head to Russian Federation, but would like to see the contingent swell in the knockout stages.

"We want to win the game", he said.

In previous global tournaments big-name England players have often struggled to perform under pressure.

We are down to the last two groups tonight when G and H are decided and the final four teams of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup last 16 go through.

After a spell in broadcasting, Southgate was hired to coach England's under-21 team in 2013 and was well-placed to be promoted to the senior job three years later when Sam Allardyce was sacked after one game in charge for unguarded comments to undercover reporters.

I didn't look at that group and think automatically that they would go through.

The world's most expensive player has battled back from a broken metatarsal to make the tournament, but has had to contend with some rough treatment in his side's opening two games against Switzerland and Costa Rica.

England will face either Colombia, Senegal or Japan in the Last 16 depending how results go on Thursday.

Again stressing England's woeful record at major tournaments in recent years, he added: 'We've not won a knockout game since 2006.

Gary Lineker scored four in the tournament and David Platt three, with defender Mark Wright the other scorer in a 1-0 group-stage win over Egypt.

Victor plays second of the earlier group so there could be mind games in this last meaningful match of the groups. Argentina topped Group A ahead of Italy and Bulgaria. "We have to keep building that belief and building those experiences".

And there's further warning signs for Belgium and England, should they be plotting any foul play in the pursuit of eventual glory.

That will only intensify with the arrival of England's former captain, and perennial A-lister, Beckham - where he is expected to take in the final group game. I go back to the fact we're trying to develop a winning mentality and I can't imagine a situation where I talk to the players about anything else.

"But be assured we as United Kingdom police will follow that up and if there is any evidence of English fans contributing to any football disorder we will actively seek banning orders against those individuals".

"He's just said 'listen, look, we've got a game Tuesday". Of course, you can get good odds and football betting tips all over the place, but that one would surely have earned a quid or two! Having enjoyed success by winning the FA Cup with unfancied Wigan playing attractive football for a team with one of the lowest budgets in the Premier League Martinez moved on to Everton where, after an encouraging first season, things turned soured at the end of his third year.

"So he just asked me if I could show a yellow".

"The boys, from the goalkeeper to the forward line, were fantastic, the boys that came on were fantastic", he said.
