Sunday evening saw England slide to a 2-0 defeat against Belgium in the Nations League, Southgate's tenth loss as manager.
Youri Tielemans opened the scoring inside ten minutes before Dries Mertens' free kick doubled Roberto Martinez's side's lead.
"We're always disappointed to lose and to lose tonight puts us out of the competition but I've got to balance that because I have to focus on performances," Southgate told The Guardian post-match.
"A performance like that wins you more games than you lose. We were better than we were [in the win] at Wembley, we created more opportunities and had more of the ball. Two moments in the game were turning points - a deflection for the first goal and the second I don't think was a free kick.
"There were a few times when we didn't find the final pass or get the shot away but in a game of the highest level we had more chances than we did at Wembley and our attacking play was better than it was at Wembley.
"We've shown we can compete. There wasn't much between ourselves and Belgium. We haven't got what we deserved in the last two games but there are fine margins in international football."
