There's some serious talent across the entire globe.
England have emerged victorious in both of their games during the international break, defeating Hungary 4-0 on Thursday andAndorra by the same scoreline on Sunday.
Despite coming close to glory in the summer, Southgate is keen his players don't get caught up in the hype.
He told The Guardian: "If we want to be serious contenders for the World Cup we cannot waste a moment. We cannot miss an opportunity to improve.
"The teams that didn't do so well in the summer will be licking their wounds and looking at everything. There's a risk that they look harder for those opportunities to improve. If we have any complacency that would be an error.
"We've got talent and we have shown positive performances and earned good results. But that can disappear very quickly.
"Our primary focus is to secure qualification but, in the background, we're always making sure that plans are in place. In the past we were worried about preparing because it might bring bad luck.
"We've got to be bold and prepare as if we're going to get there but then make sure that we get the performances right to ensure that we do."
