[Sports] World Cup 2022: Gareth Southgate says England are ready for penalty shootout against Senegal in last 16


Recommended Posts

England have been involved in three shootouts since Southgate took charge in 2016. They beat Colombia at the 2018 World Cup in Russia before overcoming Switzerland in the Nations League a year later.

Although their most recent shootout ended in defeat against Italy in the Euro 2020 final last summer, England boss Southgate believes his players are ready to go the distance against the African champions as they target a quarter-final place in Qatar this weekend.


"We're prepared. We've had a process that England followed," Southgate said at his pre-match press conference.

"We've won two of three shootouts and looked at how we can improve. But of course, there are so many other aspects we have to get right.
