One things for sure, Gareth Southgate will be celebrating a little less vehemently assuming England manage to find the net against Panama on Sunday.

This is because the Three Lions boss had the misfortune to do himself a bit of a discourtesy while out jogging, stumbling and dislocating one of his shoulders.

Having given his players the day off, Southgate ventured outside England’s training base in Repino for a bit of a run.

To cut a long story short, he appeared in front of the press on Wednesday afternoon sporting a sling on his right arm.

The doc has made it clear punching the air is not an option. I might not be celebrating any goals as athletically in future.

It is better this is me than one of the players.

We have got such a great support team and they were there very quickly.

I had brilliant help from them, and I am just sorry I managed to ruin their day off.

Southgate was taken to be fixed up at a nearby hospital, aided by team doctor Rob Chakraverty.

It would appear that England staffers accidentally knackering themselves is fast becoming a World Cup tradition – just ask Gary Lewin.
