Southgate, 52, has endured a difficult year managing Three Lions after struggling in the Nations League but is taking his country to Qatar next month in hopes of finishing a notch better than the Euros last year.

England famously reached the final of Euro 2020, losing to Italy on penalties and being eliminated in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup.

He joins an illustrious list of footballing icons, including Stanley Matthews, Bobby Charlton, Alex Ferguson, Pele and Arsene Wenger, as well as Premier League heroes Eric Cantona, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

Southgate, who took over from Sam Allardyce six years ago, said Sky sports news: “The England part of my journey as a player and coach was probably the biggest highlight and the greatest honor for me.

“I hope this isn’t the end, I hope there are still a few years ahead of me. I have the feeling that I still have to improve a lot.

“I feel like there is a lot we want to achieve in the next few months and beyond that I anticipate that life goes on and there are many challenges ahead.”

Southgate was included alongside recently retired England striker Ellen White.

33-year-old White helped the Lionesses to their first-ever major title on home soil this summer, hanging up her boots after becoming her country’s top scorer with 52 goals.

The ex-Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City forward said: “2022 has already been a phenomenal year. It’s truly unforgettable to achieve what we achieved at Wembley and to see the nation standing behind us.”

England manager Sarina Wiegman added: “I am delighted that Ellen’s contribution to football has been recognized by the Legends of Football committee.

“Your professionalism and performance in the game cannot be underestimated.

“She is a deserving winner of this award.”

The Legends of Football awards ceremony raised money for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.

The new Hall of Fame was honored by Laura Woods and Geoff Shreeves at Grosvenor House in London on Monday night.

James Maddison, however, is hoping the England manager will catch up on the highlights of Leicester’s 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

The one-cap midfielder scored twice and collected an assist in another outstanding performance that has seen many fans and pundits clamor for his inclusion in the World Cup squad.

Southgate hopes to emulate White by winning a major tournament for England in 2022
