Gareth on post-match interview
Gareth Southgate said, “Although the scoreline is outrageous, that wasn’t how you were expecting the game to be. There was no evidence Macedonia would suffer like that, that the game would be as straightforward as it was. Certainly in the opening 20 minutes it didn’t look that way. It’s huge credit to our senior players have set a brilliant tone all week.
“We said to them at half-time that you have to keep enjoying a night like [Monday], keep driving and finishing it well because it’s not often you have the team in that sort of moment.
“Post World Cup we’ve hit a sweet spot. There’s a hunger to go further than we’ve been and a desire to keep pushing forward but a confidence from the matches we’ve played and the big nights we’ve been involved with and the ability they know they have. That’s a good place to be. We have to keep pushing them now.
“They’ve set a standard in the last four games against different sorts of opponents where anything can be possible. They’ve been really good to watch, exciting to watch, there’s competition for places and to get into the squad but around that there’s a brilliant feel as a group and that’s what creates a strong team and I think the crowd have connected with that.”

“To see the joy on his face, he’s such a popular member of the team and so humble, works incredibly hard and talented. It was an outstanding performance. I think he’s at an elite level. He’s exceptional to work with.”
