England won’t win the euros,simply because Southgate has picked some players who have a mistake in them,and left out players like ward prose and ollie.How long is it before mings gives away a penalty and shaw let’s a striker waltz past him

Not a bad week for us earning a few Bob.

I personally wasn’t expecting him to feature in these two games this week given the fact he didnt make the squad and that I was expecting southgate to play somewhat a stronger side in both games (yesterday eve in particula) so was great to see a couple of appearances for him & meaning money in our coffers too.

I think that although Ward-Prowse is a good player and will be unlucky if he misses out, I don't think he is better than the players we have in centre midfield such as Rice, Foden, Mount, Bellingham and Phillips.

Confirmed as Ben White to replace TAA.

Disgrace really, Ward-Prowse was excellent yesterday and fully deserves a call up and potentially to start.
I don't know what else he could of done - Gave 110% all game and the best dead ball specialist in the whole squad.
His free kicks, with Kane in the box would be worth 3/4 goals in the tournament.

He's a dead ball specialist which is incredibly useful in knockout tournaments. The others have no idea how to take a free kick.

I back JWP and feel he could have potentially made the initial squad but with Henderson and Phillips proving their fitness and Maguire yet to play I think the cover was needed at CB. Walker and Coady are not used to playing in a back 4 so having another CB along with Stones and Mings is more important.

Sadly Ollie hasn’t done quite enough to become second choice striker behind Kane or enough impact out wide to be an option there. Hopefully he pushes on the next couple of years!

Agreed. There is an obsession with defenders and I can only see White as a squad player.

On Ollie, it's a shame he couldnt poke that one in last night as it might have given Southgate something to think about.
But hopefully he will get more chances in the autumn.
