Ahead of a Sky Sports News Christmas special with Gareth Southgate we caught up with the England manager to reflect on a hugely successful 2018…
Southgate led England to a memorable run to the World Cup semi-finals in Russia and has built on the summer's achievements, which captured the interest of the country, by reaching the last four of the Nations League.
Following a successful four-game interim spell in charge, Southgate was appointed on a permanent basis in November 2016 on a four-year deal and steered England to fifth in the world rankings after a series of notable victories.

Southgate, who has Premier League experience as Middlesbrough boss, was asked what chances there might be of him leaving the England role to make a return to club management.
"At the moment that is very easy because I don't have anything to consider," Southgate, who signed a new contract to remain as England manager until the 2022 World Cup in October, said.
