The London Underground's station Southgate has been renamed Gareth Southgate for two days to honor the English national football team and their head coach, Transport for London (TfL), the city's government body responsible for the transport system in the UK capital, said Monday.
"Next stop - Gareth Southgate! To celebrate the achievements of the England men's football team this summer, TfL & Visa have temporarily renamed Southgate station on the Piccadilly line. Why not come down and post a #SouthgateSelfie," TfL said via Twitter.
Southgate steered England to the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup that came to a close in Russia on Sunday, something the Three Lions failed to do since also taking the fourth place in Italy in 1990.
The 47-year-old specialist, who played for England between 1995 and 2004 and was part of the national squad at the 1998 World Cup in France and two European Championships, took charge of the Three Lions in 2016 after managing the England under-21 team for three years.
