    England Squad for Euros

    Recently I've started 'getting into' the England team a bit more mostly because of Kalvin tbh so started thinking who would I want to see in a squad at the Euros after seeing the laughable decision to pick Watkins ahead of Bamford for the latest squad. I don't think Bamford is good enough but if you're going to pick one you pick the one with more goals as neither is Watkins.

    GK (3)
    Pope, Henderson, Pickford

    Defenders (8)
    Maguire, Stones, White, Mings
    Wan Bissaka, Trent Alexander-Arnold
    Shaw, Chilwell

    Midfielders (6)
    Phillips, Rice, Foden, Bellingham, Mount, Henderson

    Wingers/Wide players (4)
    Sterling, Sancho, Rashford, Grealish (Though I'm not sure about Sancho, never really done it for England)

    Strikers (2)
    Kane, Calvert-Lewin

    I'm counting Rashford here as someone who can move into a striker position and in all honest the rest of the options aren't good enough and if they're playing at Euros we might as well not bother going.


    I'd then personally pick this line up-


    GK- Pope (For me our best keeper and you pick your best keeper unless you're Barca and play tiki taka which Soutgate won't, he will **** the bed and play 4-3-2-1 with three holding mids probably)

    LB- Chilwell (Only if he gets back into regular Chelsea team or I'd have Shaw)
    CB- Maguire
    CB- Stones
    RB- Trent Alexander-Arnold

    CM- Phillips
    CM- Rice
    CAM- Foden

    RM- Rashford
    LM- Sterling

    ST- Kane

    Think if you go with something like this, with both Phillips and Rice in there it gives full backs license to attack and Foden freedom to move out of position. Get Phillips pushing higher to disrupt them breaking out and win it back early like he does and then Rice just holding back and covering.

    I'm probably being biased as I'd do anything to get Kalvin in and I think Southgate will just not play him to be honest.

    On another note how the **** does Jesse Lingard get in the England team again? A few good performances for West Ham and he is back in! He is crap, having a rare spurt of good form but nothing more.

    Oh and Eric Dier, quite possibly the ****test and most over rated player in the squad. He is a crap centre back and even worse in midfield.

    Surprised Reece James not selected think he is a beast of a player.

    Would have Grealish and Mount in the starting xI too

    Problem for me with Mount is he is just not in the same class as Foden or Grealish. I'd play Grealish but for me he plays outwide and I don't think he is better than Sterling or Rashford.

    Yep shame they've got a fraud in charge who won't utilise them properly. We will just end up with some dull defensive formation designed to make us hard to beat like we are some pub team up against Man City.

    Is Ashley Barnes not English? Very puzzled on his omission unless he is Brazilian or Polish or possibly injured. Wasn't bothered by Bamford's omission until I noticed Watkins' selection. How can Southgate prefer Watkins over Bamford, is the question. Agree with Joel,- laughable.

    Oops. Got the wrong Barnes. Thinking of Harvey Barnes who is out injured.
