Paul Gascoigne has lavished praise on Gareth Southgate, insisting the England boss has got the national team "playing football the way football is supposed to be played".
In the build-up to Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Switzerland in Leicester, Southgate described Gascoigne as a "unique talent", and admitted England have struggled to find a game-changing player of a similar ilk in recent years.
Gazza was a guest at the King Power Stadium and speaking after the game, the ex-Newcastle and Tottenham midfielder said he is "proud" of his former international team-mate.
"Gareth Southgate has got England playing football the way football is supposed to be played," Gascoigne said.
"The way they pass the ball around - they are young, they're strong and there's unbelievable talent there in the England team. Unbelievable.
"Gareth as a manager, I'm proud of him. I said before [to him] the game, 'Gareth, I'm proud of you'. I'm thankful for what he did for me, what he said about me, [calling me the] best player in the world in 50 years. I'm 51, so I must have been good at one years of age!"
