"But of course you get an accumulation of fatigue, through a tournament that's why we took the decision we did against Belgium more than anything".

"So we'll just have to assess people as we go".

Any mention of England's World Cup victory in 1966 sets many Scots' teeth on edge.

He added: "Hopefully we had a long month together, which we have done".

A 2-0 victory over Malta in October, 2016 got Southgate's reign as Sam Allardyce's successor off to the flawless start and he's since managed to guide the Three Lions to a World Cup semi-final.
