Gareth Southgate is going to get the chance to better England’s strong 2018 World Cup run.

England announced a new deal with the manager through the end of 2022 tournament in Qatar.

That ensures that Southgate will be under contract for three major tournaments (more if you include the UEFA Nations League). From Sky Sports:

The 48-year-old is expected to sign the paperwork before the senior squad joins up at St George’s Park on Sunday evening.

The new deal is understood to include a significant pay rise, which will mean Southgate earns 50 per cent more than he did for guiding England to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup.

England is on the road for a pair of UNL matches during this international break, at Spain and Croatia. Spain beat England 2-1 and Croatia 6-0 in the first round of matches.
