Middlesbrough boss Southgate happy with Pogatetz aggro

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate has no problem with the aggression being shown by Emanuel Pogatetz for Austria at the Euros.

He told the Evening Gazette: "Emanuel cares passionately about his country and I don't know all the ins and outs of how they run things there but obviously he has been up for this for a couple of years and I assume he knows there aren't a lot of goals in their side so when they concede so early it's a big blow for them.

"It's not for me to comment on how they play for their counties, I think he is very proud to represent them and hope they can go further."
