Spain v England: Gareth Southgate says World Cup players 'lacking freshness'

Today 19:06 GMT

Premier League players have suffered because the competition started "so early" after the World Cup, says England manager Gareth Southgate.

"I think it's a lack of psychological freshness, rather than physical," said Southgate, whose team face Spain in the Nations League in Seville on Monday. And it is understood the Premier League feels it has very little room for manoeuvre because of the number of dates allotted to Fifa and Uefa competitions in the schedule.
