Southgate warns England fans not to expect too much

England chief Gareth Southgate has warned fans against expecting too much from their Euros campaign.

The 41-year-old will be working as a pundit for ITV during the tournament.

Speaking at the launch of their coverage, he said: "I don't think we are in a situation where, as a country, we can go out there and outplay too many teams.

"We rarely outpossess other countries, so we've got to think logically about how we set up and the best way to get results.

"That's not negative. How did we beat Spain (under Fabio Capello in November)? How did Chelsea get through against Barcelona? In certain games you have to accept the opposition might get more of the ball, so that tends to dictate what you do with your selection."
