Gareth Southgate has taken England from being a team that looks for long balls and transitions to wanting possession. It has been a hard road, one that has generated doubts in his country, but one that has paid off.
The first goal defines that style of play perfectly. Few risks on the ball, sometimes excessively slow, and then speeding up when there is space behind the defence.
Two of the keys to the goal were Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane, who are having a great World Cup.
