England’s coach, Gareth Southgate has admitted that he might find it too painful to watch the rest of the 2022 World Cup.
England was defeated 2-1 by France despite a thrilling comeback during the quarterfinal match with the world champions played on Saturday, December 10.
The English boss flew home from Qatar with the backroom staff and players on Sunday, December 11, in the wake of their devastating quarter-final defeat.
Gareth Southgate who responded to being asked if he would watch the semi-final and final of the World Cup, said he may not but is interested in knowing how it goes.
“I don’t think so. I don’t really know. I am interested to see how it goes but I don’t know.”
England players were permitted to travel home separately and, while some caught the FA plane back to the Midlands, others flew to different destinations for a short break before rejoining their clubs for the rest of the Premier League season.
Several clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea have training camps in the Middle East to allow players to join up when England went out.
