Gareth Southgate Extends England Contract Till 2024

England’s contract with Gareth Southgate has been extended until the 2024 European Championships.

Southgate’s last contract was set to expire after the World Cup in Qatar next year, but he was widely anticipated to extend it.

The FA sought to keep the former Middlesbrough manager after a successful Euro 2020 campaign in which the squad finished second to Italy, as well as a successful 2018 World Cup campaign in which the national team advanced to the semi-finals before losing to Croatia.

Southgate has been in control of the national team for almost five years, having replaced Sam Allardyce, who only managed one match in charge.

Southgate, who will be in charge for five years at the end of this month, has overseen a period of positive progress, leading England to a FIFA World Cup semi-final and a third-place finish in the UEFA Nations League before leading England to their best men’s performance in 55 years at the UEFA EURO final this summer.

Southgate and his deputy Holland will now lead England to the 2022 World Cup, for which qualification was confirmed earlier this month, before guiding the squad through qualifying for the 2024 European Championship, which begins in March 2023.
