And Southgate has also urged his players to try to avoid using extremely offensive swear words.

He said: “We’ve spent two years encouraging them to speak, so to stop them from speaking now could be slightly against what we’ve been working on.

“It’s for the television companies to decide where they put their microphones.

“It’s something we can’t prepare for.”
