Petition to get a statue for Gareth Southgate in Sussex picks up more signatures before Euros 2020 match with Germany

A petition to get Gareth Southgate a statue has gained some traction ahead of the huge Euros 2020 match with Germany.

Southgate, who grew up in Crawley and went to school at Pound Hill and Hazelwick schools, leads his men into the last 16 tie tonight (29th June).

The petition, which has more than 1,000 signatures, was originally started during the 2018 World Cup where England exceeded expectations.

The petition on change.org said: "Gareth Southgate and the ENGLAND Team have achieved far more than anyone expected them to at this World Cup.

"Gareth grew up in Crawley, where his parents still live and we at Spotted: Crawley believe the council should recognise his achievements with a statue of the man himself! Proposed locations are Broadfield Stadium Roundabout, The High St by RBS and Queens Square."
