Italy will now face England on Sunday, with the two teams battling it out at Wembley for the title of European champions in a historic moment for England.
According to The Telegraph, if Southgate orchestrates one of English football’s greatest achievements, the 50-year-old will be awarded a knighthood.
According to the source, Kane, the captain of the Three Lions, and Sterling, an England player, will have their MBEs upgraded if they win the trophy.
