Southgate urges debate over lack of chances for young English players

May JohnsonSep 01, 2018

In the build up to the squad's announcement, both Jamie Vardy and Gary Cahill all-but announced their retirements from global football to focus on their club careers.

"It's been quite a while since we've come out of a tournament not needing a root-and-branch review of English football", Southgate said with a smile.

" I recognise that, when you're travelling with England and not playing for a fair bit of time, that's a different sort of role".

Thirty-three-year-old Young made an impressive 38 appearances for the Red Devils last season, earning him a place in England's World Cup squad this summer.

A wink to Jack Grealish or Nick Powell, perhaps, as well as an explanation for the inclusion of Stoke backstop Jack Butland.

"Luke has always been a player we have liked", said Southgate.

Veteran utility-man Ashley Young has been dropped in favour of an in-form Manchester United teammate Luke Shaw, while Phil Jones misses out through injury.

Dershowitz: 'Greatest Risk' to Trump Is From NY Prosecutors, Not Mueller Probe
Prosecutors believe there is very little about the Trump Organisation's financial transactions that Weisselberg doesn't know. Cohen mentioned Weisselberg on a secret recording that Cohen made in September 2016 and which was aired on CNN last month.

England get back to business in their first matches since the World Cup next month.

The left back has been one of the few players to impress for United in its underwhelming start to the Premier League and was rewarded with a place in a squad containing 18 of the 23 players who helped England surprisingly reach the World Cup semifinals. That is how I get the team going in the next couple of years, really. We had five changes anyway and we felt that was enough.

"In this moment he is feeling the good results of the hard work and the good results of many people that work with him and try to make him a proper football player because a proper football player is a player of consistency", Mourinho told a news conference on Friday.

"We picked a squad in the summer that we believed were the best players for that". It was great that we were able to have mature conversations about that.

"We wanted some continuity (but) we won't stand still".

It is considered too soon for the trio and Southgate insisted they will have to prove their worth to crack his squad.
