Gareth Southgate, England manager is said to be on verge of signing a 2-year extension of his contract that would allow him to lead the Three Lions into Euro 2024.

Southgate has completely transformed England's fortunes since taking the job in 2016

Southgate is a major change agent in England since he took the position in 2016.

Since 2016, Southgate has been a success in the Three Lions hot spot, leading England to Euro 2020’s final this summer and the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia three years later.

The former Middlesbrough boss has been in negotiations over recent weeks with FA technical director John McDermott, and confidence is high that an announcement can be made soon. FA refused to comment.

Southgate seems to be focused on his immediate task, which is to qualify for the next World Cup. This is before any extension announcements.

If they win their two qualifying matches, which begin tonight at Wembley against Albania, then they can accomplish this feat. Next up, they will face San Marino’s minnows on Monday.

Southgate will have the responsibility of bringing out England’s best talent stars.

The Eight Years of Sir Bobby Robson as Three Lions’ boss will equal his efforts between 1982 and 1990. Meanwhile, tonight Sven Goran Eriksson is on the same level for England games managed (67). 

Walter Winterbottom and Sir Alf Ramsey have more England international matches, while Capello’s win rate is higher.
