England manager, Gareth Southgate has come out to say that the racist abuse of England players during the Euros has complicated his penalty shootout preparation. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he currently has to take a lot of things into consideration before making his final decision, but it wouldn’t be right to not pick players who can score just because of the consequences of them missing.
Southgate added that he’ll keep picking the takers based on the belief they are going to score.
His words, “We went through a process of preparing for penalties. We’ve definitely reviewed that,”
“But indirectly we have created another layer of difficulty in overcoming a penalty shootout. I have got to take all these things into consideration and it is incredibly complex.”
“It wouldn’t be right to not pick the players you think are best … because of what the possible consequences of them missing would be,”
“I’ve got to pick them on the belief they are going to score.”
