Professional Career

Southgate, who was born in Watford, Hertfordshire, began his career at Crystal Palace, where he played right back and later centre midfield. He was named captain and guided the team to the First Division title in 1993–94. He was converted to a centre-back at Aston Villa and was part of a strong defence.

He won the League Cup in his debut season, and Aston Villa qualified for the UEFA Cup. Southgate joined Middlesbrough for £6.5 million on July 11, 2001. He was the first signing by Steve McClaren, whom he knew as an England coach, and he signed a four-year contract.

Southgate made his England debut as a substitute against Portugal in December 1995, under Terry Venables’ supervision. Southgate played every minute of England’s matches as they advanced to the UEFA Euro 1996 semi-finals, when they met Germany.

Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren departed the club in June 2006 to take over as England manager, succeeding Sven-Göran Eriksson. Although Martin O’Neill was the early favourite for the next job, chairman Steve Gibson picked Southgate to follow McClaren and signed a five-year contract with the club.

Southgate returned to football management on August 22, 2013, when he secured a three-year deal to succeed Stuart Pearce as manager of the England under-21 squad. In the interim period leading up to Southgate’s hiring, senior team manager Roy Hodgson led the squad to a 6–0 triumph over Scotland.

When Sam Allardyce resigned after one game owing to the 2016 English football controversy, Southgate was appointed as the interim manager of the senior England team on September 27, 2016. England was still in the process of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

With a 1–0 home win over Slovenia on October 5, 2017, England qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Southgate’s future as England manager was assured by the Football Association in December, even if the side did not advance past the group stage of the tournament, characterizing their expectations as “reasonable” and the tournament as “a really crucial staging post for our growth.” In the first UEFA Nations League, Southgate led England to third place. They accomplished it by winning a group that included Spain and Croatia. It was their first victory in Spain in 31 years, when they defeated the Spanish 3–2.

England won Group D at UEFA Euro 2020, which comprised Croatia, Scotland, and the Czech Republic, beating Croatia 1–0 to begin the European Championship with a win for England, drawing Scotland 0–0, and defeating the Czech Republic 1–0, with forward Raheem Sterling scoring both goals. At Wembley Stadium, England defeated Denmark 2-1 to reach the European Championships final for the first time. England took a 1-0 lead in the final thanks to an early goal from defender Luke Shaw, but Italy’s Leonardo Bonucci levelled the match in the 67th minute, and England eventually lost 3-2 on penalties.

Southgate co-wrote Woody & Nord: A Football Friendship with his close friend Andy Woodman in 2003. This book chronicles an on-going relationship that began in the Crystal Palace junior squad and has endured despite Southgate and Woodman’s vastly different professional careers.
