Gareth Southgate Christmas jumpers are on sale this year

If you fancy pretending to be the Three Lions manager at your work’s Christmas party – this is for you

Gareth Southgate Christmas jumpers are on sale this year, with manufacturer notjust offering the shirt, waistcoat and tie all-in-one knitted sweater for a price of £34.99. With just 500 available though, you’ll have to move fast to get your hands on one.

After England’s exploits at the World Cup this summer, the nation’s faith in the national side has been well and truly restored. Although the journey in Russia ended a little sour after being knocked out by Croatia in the semi-finals, the memories of that fateful month will forever live on in all of our hearts.

Chants of ‘Southgate you’re the one, you still turn me on, football’s coming home again’ still rang true around Wembley this weekend, when England came from a goal behind to get their revenge on Croatia, beating Zlatko Dalić’s men 2-1 to book their place in next summer’s UEFA Nations League finals.

And this Christmas, beer-fuelled chat in pubs across the country will be centred around England’s latest rise in performance, with the statement of “we’re gonna win it, mate” completely exhausted come about 8:30am on New Years Day. If you want to get really into it, why not stick the official Southgate jumper on while you’re chewing the fat – you know it makes perfect sense.
