Gareth Southgate

Born03 September 1970, Watford
NationalityEnglish
Weight80 kg
Height1.83 m
PositionDefender/Centre back

Gareth is an articulate character, capable and thoroughly consistent.

He started his career at Crystal Palace before earning a £2.5million move to Aston Villa in 1995. Although now one of the England squad’s more senior members, he has continued to impress following his move to Middlesbrough.

Whatever the future holds, to say the least, it is unfortunate that he will forever be remembered for his penalty miss in the Euro ’96 semi-final against Germany.

Gareth made his international debut against Portugal at Wembley in 1995.
He extended his Middlesbrough contract to June 2007 in August 2004.
