The Football Association has announced that Gareth Southgate will stay on as England's manager. 

It comes after the 52-year-old shared that he was considering his future in the wake of last weekend’s 2-0 quarter-final defeat to reigning champions France at the World Cup.

As the England Manager admitted to feeling “conflicted” about staying on given what has been a difficult 18 months.

However, now the FA has confirmed that Southgate has a contract until the 2024 European Championship.

“We are delighted to confirm that Gareth Southgate is continuing as England manager and will lead our Euro 2024 campaign,” said the FA chief executive Mark Bullingham in a statement.

“Gareth and (assistant) Steve Holland have always had our full support and our planning for the Euros start now.”

Back in 2018, Southgate led the England squad to the World Cup semi-finals in Russia and took the team to the finals of last summer’s European Championship before reaching the last eight in Qatar.

In the build-up to this year’s tournament, there had been significant criticism of Southgate following a run of poor results.

Speaking of whether he'd stay on, Southgate said: “I think, whenever I finish these tournaments, I’ve needed time to make correct decisions.

“Emotionally you go through so many different feelings. The energy it takes through these tournaments is enormous.

“I want to make the right decision, whatever that is, for the team, for England, for the FA. I’ve got to be sure whatever decision I make is the right one.”
