England coach Gareth Southgate has revealed that his players are battle ready for penalties against the Lions of Teranga in today’s round of 16 clash in the 2022 World Cup.
Recall that in 2018 World Cup, the Three Lions won their first-ever World Cup penalty shootout to beat Colombia and advance to the quarter-finals.
Their latest shootout, though, ended in defeat – an agonising loss to Italy in the final of the European Championship at Wembley last year.
Southgate says the squad have been focusing on their spot-kicks in training.
“We were not moving far from what we did, but there are some things we thought we could nail down even tighter and we have been working on that for a while,” he said.
“There is a balance of not making that a bigger drama than it needs to be but, at the same time, making sure we are prepared.”
