The FA will not get rid of Gareth Southgate, certainly not on the eve of a World Cup and certainly not with executives having so much personal credibility tied up in his doing well, but the governing body is surely finally beginning to realise that he is not a great tactician, his in-game management lacks decisiveness and he risks wasting a good generation.

Everyone focuses on this run of three defeats in five matches now, no wins in five, no goals from open play in 450 minutes and relegation from tier A of the Nations League, but this slide began in the European Championship final last year when Southgate failed to respond to Roberto Mancini’s second-half changes.
