"If people are in, it's because they're serious contenders".
Germany racked up 42 goals in 10 games, Poland managed 28 and Spain bagged 35 with one match to play.
The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Marcus Rashford (all playing Champions League football this season) have been promoted to the England National side in recent seasons due to their impressive domestic performances for Tottenham and Manchester United respectively. So perceptions of players and their actual particular skill sets and areas where they are effective is not what's commonly perceived. But when they play for their country you don't see same quality. Dele's biggest strengths are arriving in the box, timing his runs, finishing and scoring goals.
That could still see Spurs get another few years out of the sensation, but there is a feeling that unless their chairman Daniel Levy reassesses the club's wage structure over the next few seasons, at least some of their current crop will follow Kyle Walker out the door.
"Their link and understanding. the more relationships you can have on the pitch in worldwide level from club level, the better", he said. Alli has also been accused of diving during Spurs' win over Huddersfield Town - and Southgate has warned him that his behaviour has prompted critics and opponents to scrutinise him even more, though still highlighted his young age. But Southgate does not want to rob him just yet of what Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino describes as Alli's "devilment".
Garath Southgate was spotted having a feel of the plastic grass as he prepared his squad for the added challenge of playing on the artificial surface for the first time. "There'll be more interest in what he does".
In their final four games they managed eight goals, although three of those came after the 85th-minute against the tiring part-timers of Malta. He's a more instinctive type of person.
