Gareth Southgate has been sporting a limited edition £4,800 watch while managing England at Euro 2020 – which has a feature that notifies him of penalties.

The Three Lions boss became an unlikely style icon at the 2018 World Cup when he captured the nation's hearts while donning a suave waist coat on the touchline.

And at this summer's major tournament he has been wearing a hi-tech Hublot timepiece – one of only 1,000 made – which allows him to follow matches in real time.

The swanky watch helps him view details on any Euro 2020 match by displaying info on the large screen face, such as substitutions, goals and cards awarded.

It also gives him the option to view line-ups and player rankings, which could help him make substitutions and provide analysis on England's opponents.

However, the most notable feature on Southgate's Hublot Big Bang e UEFA EURO 2020 is penalty alerts, which flash up whenever there is one awarded in a game.

The former England international infamously missed a decisive spot-kick at Euro 96, but so far the current side have avoided any dreaded shootouts.

His watch also features the flags of Europe's biggest nations around the electronic face, while there is even the option to download dials in the colour of your favourite nation.

Southgate is likely to be wearing it when England take on Ukraine in a crucial Euro 2020 quarter-final on Saturday night.

Victory in Rome will book their place in the last four of the competition, where they would face either Denmark or Czech Republic back home at Wembley, before a potential final at the same venue against Spain or Italy.

Southgate is happy to be away from England's home stadium for the first time in the tournament, saying in his pre-match press conference: "I think it's good to come away from Wembley now.

"It would have been hard to replicate the atmosphere we had the other day [in the win against Germany]."
