Paul Gascoigne believes England have what it takes to win Euro 2020 is urging Three Lions fans to support Gareth Southgate.
Gazza, 54, was one of the stars of Euro 96 with his goal against Scotland in the group stages going down in England folklore.
But what is often forgotten is that Gascoigne was one of the first players to comfort Southgate after his penalty miss against Germany in the semi-final.
That bond between team-mates still holds to his day, which is why the Tottenham hero is urging fans to back the boss if England want to win the Euros.
Speaking ahead of tonight’s quarter-final clash with Ukraine in Rome, Gascoigne told The Sun: “If we trust in Gareth, everything else will come good.”
“The crucial thing is for as many England fans as possible to get to the game and, most importantly, get behind Gareth.
“He’s the answer to everything for us, and we need to believe in him.”
“I know Gareth well and we’re still good mates so I know he’s got what it takes to take us all the way. He’s the key.”
Tonight’s match at the Stadio Olimpico is the first time England have played away from Wembley during Euro 2020.

Gazza has good memories of the Rome venue, having played there for Lazio between 1992 and 1995.
He added: “I know that stadium well. It’s big, but we don’t need to be intimidated.
“We have the right man in charge and the right players to go the distance, but we can’t have any doubts in our manager if we’re going to go all the way.
“Gareth is amazing, and a good mate. I’ve spoken to him fairly recently before the tournament.
“We’ve always stayed in touch. When we played together, he was an amazing team-mate but a brilliant bloke off the pitch, too.
“He’s always been good to me on a personal level. He’s very approachable.
“He understands people and he understands football. He’s a smart guy.
“He’s also very proud of his role with England, which he should be. It’s the ultimate job for a football man, and he really deserves it.”
