Gareth Southgate is a man getting used to doing the impossible.

First, he managed to unite the country in support of the England national team in a way we haven't seen in years.


Second, he won a knockout game at a World Cup - on penalties, no less.

The sky is the limit for this exuberant young England team, a side that looks transformed from the limp performances at the Euros just two years ago.

Southgate has only been in charge for a year and a half, so how has he brought about such a staggering change of fortunes?
