Still, without a win in the 2022-23 Nations League, the Euro 2020 runners-up cannot finish first in League A Group 3 and only have one goal from their opening four games and will look to finish the group stage on a positive note.
The team had a far more difficult campaign than the other teams as the side got none in winning and scored only once from the four matches played.
After this Nations League, they can focus on the preparation for Qatar World Cup, as they are planning to play friendlies before the mega event. Southgate and his men must find solutions for the goal-scoring problem on the field.
