According to BBC Radio 5 Live's World Cup Daily podcast, Southgate has been looking beyond the sport of soccer for insights that could help him manage England's World Cup team and devise new tactics on the pitch.

Colombia seemed to be using every trick in the book to put England off their game, while England, in fairness, did get involved in some trickery themselves, though nowhere near the level of their World Cup opponents.
