"I'd say James Ward-Prowse has been outstanding. The way he's gone about closing people down, the qualities of his deliveries into the box. He's trying to prove a point that he can add this to Southgate's team." Journo
"While he might be able to shoehorn all four right-backs into his plans at some point, surely some extra cover in midfield – either with Lingard or Ward-Prowse – would have made more sense. And if he truly believes his 26 are the “best footballers”, why not prove it by fielding a team comprised only of them?" Another Journo.
It certainly is incredible, that our National Manager, believes that 4 Right backs is the way. 1-0 England (Penalty Rashford) Meaningless friendly.
Ridiculous, Southgate is now saying JWP isn't in the top 27 English players in the country, and is only taking 5 midfielders, one of whom was injured all season. If we win this tournament, hands up Southgate will have got it right, but I just can't see it.
Southgate is a prick. England to bow out early. Forgetting JWP, which is wrong but whatever, WTF is that squad selection about? Hopefully we go out and that personality vacuum gets moved on like the rest of them.
