Southgate appears to be using the friendlies ahead of the World Cup in order to blood young talent before making a decision on the players he will include in is squad for Russian Federation 2018.

The boss needs no reminding about England's woe in shootouts, having missed the vital penalty in the heartbreaking Euro 96 semi-final defeat to Germany.
