The Three Lions head coach believed for months that the World Cup would be his last tournament in charge and felt the same immediately after the quarter-final loss to France.

But now he’s ready to commit to leading the team to Euro 2024 in Germany.

The news came as Newcastle boss Eddie Howe – who has been linked with the job – said he hopes Southgate will continue with his “great work”.

The FA will be greatly relieved at Southgate’s change of heart.

He set alarm bells ringing by refusing to fulfill his contract after losing to France.

Southgate, 52, said he needed time to reflect on whether he had the energy for another tournament campaign.

Despite being told by the England players that they wanted him to stay, he stayed on two minds.

Southgate has been hit with criticism during the disastrous Nations League season, particularly the hostile reaction from fans after the 4-0 home defeat by Hungary in June.

HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP

He had to be dissuaded from publicly announcing his intention to retire after the World Cup but still thought he would leave no matter what happened in Qatar.

Now, after a week of soul-searching, Southgate has changed his mind and wants to give England another shot at tournament glory.

Although the Three Lions were eliminated in the last eight after reaching the semi-finals in Russia and last year’s Euros final, Southgate believes the team have shown real signs of progress.

He has been thrilled with the performance of young players like Jude Bellingham and excited to see what they could achieve in the future.

And he feels the public accepted the defeat to France more than previous disappointments because England had played better and up front.

Southgate is understood to have met assistant Steve Holland on Friday and the two have agreed they will continue the job they started in 2016.

Howe is among the England fans who will be delighted with the news.

Howe said after Newcastle’s 2-1 friendly win over Spanish club Rayo Vallecano: “I hope Gareth goes on and continues the great work he’s done – that’s my wish for him – my only focus is on Newcastle United.

“I thought England were really unlucky and in my opinion they were the better team against France, but sometimes the better team doesn’t win.

“I watched like everyone else in England hoping for England to win but it didn’t happen which is a shame because overall they played very well at the tournament.”
