This is the phoney-war period before the World Cup, the last couple of friendlies are about to commence and in the absence of actual football to talk about side issues such as Raheem Sterling's tattoos are being blown up into big news.
Nigerian fans are coming to terms with a loss to England in a friendly game at the Wembley on Saturday, just a day after their "beautiful" jersey was the hottest sports story in the world.
But Sterling couldn't stay out of trouble and was booked for an embarrassingly clear dive in a failed attempt to win a second-half penalty.
It was that kind of evening for Southgate, with pluses and negatives in equal measure.
He was born in Milton Keynes to a English mother and a Nigerian father, with whom he famously has a complicated relationship.

Veteran Ashley Young, slotted at left-back, made a darting run down the wing but was prevented to get his shot on goal by a body of Super Eagles defenders at the midway stage. "There was a lot of unselfish one and two-touch play".
Substitutes: Ruben Loftus-Cheek (for Lingard, 67mins): 5; Danny Rose (for Young, 68mins): 6; Danny Welbeck (for Kane, 73mins): 6; Marcus Rashford (for Sterling, 73mins): 5; Fabian Delph (for Alli, 82mins): 5.
Jesse Lingard went close to doubling their lead, after a neat passing movement, but was denied at a tight angle by Uzoho.
Man-of-the-match Cahill was playing in an England shirt for the first time since October 2017 and Southgate said: "Gary is deservedly back in the squad with the way he finished the season with Chelsea".
The visitors came flying out of the bocks after half time and halved the deficit within two minutes of the restart when Ighalo's effort came back off the post and bounced to the feet of Arsenal's Iwobi, who swept the rebound home.
Sterling hopes to block out the criticism.
