We are delighted to confirm England manager Gareth Southgate and assistant coach Steve Holland have signed new contracts that will take them both through to December 2024.
Southgate, who marks five years in charge of the Three Lions at the end of this month, has overseen a period of positive progress, guiding England to a FIFA World Cup semi-final and UEFA Nations League third place before securing the best men’s performance in 55 years with the UEFA EURO Final this summer.
The new deal means Southgate and Holland will lead England to the 2022 World Cup, for which qualification was secured earlier this month, before taking the team through qualifying for the 2024 EURO, which starts in March 2023.
"I am delighted that Steve and I have been able to extend our stay in our respective roles," said Southgate.
"It remains an incredible privilege to lead this team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark [Bullingham, FA CEO), John [McDermott, FA technical director] and the Board for their support - and of course the players and support team for their hard work.
"We have a great opportunity in front of us and I know they and the fans are all excited about what this squad could achieve in future."
