Southgate on Stones mistakes

Gareth Southgate: “If we didn’t play that way, we wouldn’t have got to the semi-finals we’ve got to, and we would never progress to being a top team because you saw the way Holland played that way as well.”

Gareth Southgate: “They (Netherlands) also made a really poor error at the back. But I have got to be there to support John [Stones] because he’s going to get criticism after tonight.”

Gareth Southgate: “But himself (John Stones) and Harry [Maguire], the way we ask them to play, they take huge strain of the game on their shoulders and they’re incredibly courageous to do that.”

Gareth Southgate: “So, that’s the way I believe they can play and we should play, and we didn’t lose because of how we wanted to play. The errors were uncharacteristic, really, and not errors that we would make.”
