On 7 April 2018, an eye-catching Merseyside derby was held at Goodison Park, which was the 231st derby between the two squads. Everton played a game against its long-standing rival Liverpool. Players of Everton included Jordan Pickford, Philip Nikodem Jagielka, Tom Davies and so on. Liverpool’s players included Loris Karius, Nathaniel Clyne, Ragnar Klavan and so on.

Gareth Southgate, the head coach of England national team, came to Goodison Park to watch the game and probably to select excellent players.
According to the Daily Mirror, a British national daily tabloid newspaper, a discussion was initiated on the social network after Southgate was appointed as the agent to manage the England national team. Someone said that the FA hired the most boring people in the world for the sake of safety. Besides, some football experts also expressed “desperation” over this decision.
However, after the team played four games, the winds of public opinion reversed instantly. In the three games of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, England national team won two games and one draw. What’s more, “Three Lions” and Spain national team got the same points in a game.
