Gareth Southgate

Returning to Middlesbrough has a special taste for the England manager. He has been in charge of the English team since 2016, when he was promoted after working in the country's U-21 team. The former defender started his coaching career precisely at Middlesbrough and left the club in the 2009 season after 151 games, 45 wins, 43 draws and 63 losses. Since then Boro has been in the Championship and finished last season in 10th place.

Romania: Last match

Last Wednesday (3), the underdog walked around the Ilie Oana Stadium, in Ploiesti, a city located north of the capital Bucharest, as Georgia won 2-1, with goals from Mikataudze and Aburjania. Andrei Ivan pulled one back. The confrontation had two players sent off, one for each side - the Romanian Florin Tanase left the field in the first half for leaving his arm on Chabradze and the Georgian Solomon Kverkvelia was red-carded in the second half for committing a penalty. When the score was 1-0, Ivan was brought down in the box. Razvan Marin went for the ball but shot over the bar, too far from the goal.
