As France took on Morocco in the second World Cup semi-final, BBC thought this would be the perfect time to discuss England.

As England continue to dissect their 2-1 defeat to France in the quarter-final, the big question remains if Gareth Southgate will continue as manager.

Had England defeated France, they would have faced Morocco this evening, who have been the breath of fresh air in this tournament.

Despite an eventful first half that saw France take a 1-0 lead into the interval, the BBC panel of Alan Shearer, Didier Drogba and Rio Ferdinand discussed the future of England manager Gareth Southgate.

It will likely continue to be a talking point until the Premier League resumes, as the debate around Gareth Southgate's position as England manager.

For some fans and pundits, the progress he has made with a youthful, exciting group of players should never be forgotten.

However, it was another big game under Gareth Southgate that England let slip. This one will be particularly painful, as England were the better side against France,


BBC Coverage Angers Viewers

The debate around this England team is always an interesting conversation, but perhaps could take place at a different time.

When France, the 2018 winners who are aiming for their second consecutive World Cup, are taking on Morocco, the first side from Africa to play in the semi-finals, people don't want to hear about England.


In a World Cup that has produced some incredible moments, especially among these two sides, the conversation regarding Gareth Southgate's future could possibly wait for another day.


Viewers made their feelings very clear as they were unimpressed with BBC's half-time coverage.

In a game that was very entertaining for viewers, the inquest into how England lost isn't at the forefront of people's mind, but it is for the BBC.

Just two more England inquests for viewers to enjoy.
