England manager Gareth Southgate has decided to stay and lead the Euro 2024 campaign, the English Football Association (FA) said on Sunday.

The popular 52-year-old led England to the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar, where they were eliminated by France, and had said he had “conflicts” over his role and was thinking about it.

“We are delighted to confirm that Gareth Southgate continues as England manager, and will lead our Euro 2024 campaign,” FA chief executive Mark Bullingham said in a statement.

“Gareth and Steve Holland have always had our full support, and our planning for the European Championship starts now.”

Southgate, who also led England to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and the final of the postponed Euro 2020 last year, signed a new contract until the end of 2024 in November last year.

England were relegated to the second tier of the Nations League earlier this year after a run of six games without winning and five games without scoring a goal.

Some adverse reactions from the fans then displeased Southgate and his players, although they were widely praised for their World Cup campaign, in which they performed impressively and lost by the minimum against France (2-1) with a penalty missed by captain Harry Kane.
