"We had good controlled possession, but we do want to create more clear chances and I think we can create more clear-cut chances", said Southgate as seen on the Mirror.

"This was a friendly match against Bury; yes there was 40,000 here so there was a slight bit of pressure, especially for the new players because it's the first time they will be judged".
