The interim England boss will take charge of his final match in a four-game stint agreed after the departure of Sam Allardyce when Spain visit Wembley on Tuesday, but he remains the frontrunner to take the job on a permanent basis.Southgate accepts the group stage exit at the World Cup in 2014 and humiliating defeat to Iceland at the Euros this year show the nation is in no position to get ahead of itself but believes the players have the attitude and aptitude to achieve success. Iceland beat England at Euro 2016 Im not sure if Ive learned about myself because I was very aware of what I am, what Im capable of, what I do, he said of his temporary stint.
