Gareth Southgate's amazing gesture for England staff
- England head coach gave each backroom staff member a handwritten letter before the World Cup
- Jim Lucas, England’s social media officer, shared the letter he received
Jim comments on the gift: "When we arrived in Repino a month ago, this was on my bed. I’ve looked at it every day since – and it was the first thing I looked at when we got back this morning. I am so proud to work for this team and this manager."
The letter says: "The more I see, the more important it is that when ‘attacking this tournament’ we tell our own story.
"You’re capturing that brilliantly.
"Keep doing it and I hope this World Cup brings you unforgettable personal memories.
"Best wishes, Gareth."
