Tube station named after England manager Gareth Southgate

Transport for London has temporarily renamed an Underground station after England manager Gareth Southgate to celebrate the achievements of the men’s football team at the 2018 World Cup.

The Piccadilly line station, in Enfield, will display Gareth’s name on signage on platforms, in the ticket hall and outside the station for 48 hours from July 16 after he guided England to their best World Cup performance since 1990.
