Southgate ’embarrassed’ by ‘icy cold’ Man Utd star Greenwood

Gareth Southgate has admitted he was “embarrassed” as he had to ask Mason Greenwood which was his stronger foot in England training.

Greenwood is by far the youngest member of the squad but the 18-year-old Manchester United forward has more than held his own, with Southgate impressed by the two-footed teenager.

“I have to say it is really rare to see a player as comfortable with both feet – not just in terms of the ability to receive and pass but finishing with both feet,” the England boss added. “There aren’t many that I have seen.

“I had to ask a similar question. I feel slightly embarrassed, you pick a player for England and you’re not sure which foot he kicks the ball with but maybe some people won’t be surprised at that.

“With him, the quality of finishing, the way he’s got this icy cold stare, very calm disposition generally, which I think is clear when he’s in and around the penalty box. For somebody of his age, that’s remarkable maturity.”
