    AFTER HIS “GOAL of the century” against Argentina clinched the 2014 World Cup for Germany, Mario Goetze looked poised to become “the German Messi” who would lead the national team for the next decade. But the midfielder, who was just 22 when he came on as a substitute and hooked the ball into the net in Rio de Janeiro, has suffered a spectacular plunge from glory. Poor form after an injury and then a debilitating metabolic disease led to him being left out of the Germany squad for the World Cup in Russia. In a stark illustration of Goetze’s battles over the past years, electronics giant Samsung has traced his darkest moments in a commercial. The video depicts him watching TV coverage of Germany’s

    Gareth Southgate has already put himself through a 4am rerun of England’s World Cup defeat by Croatia as he begins to plan for Euro 2020, when football really will come home to Wembley.

Southgate has dealt with similar feelings before, crushed by his penalty miss in the semi-final of Euro 96, and although he has thicker skin these days the pain of defeat lingers. “We were 20 minutes from a World Cup final…that is going to live with me forever, there is not doubt about that,” he said.
