In the 2019/20 season and the early stages of the 2020/21 season, English football has also witnessed the progress of many local players. They are Michail Antonio boomed in West Ham, Tariq Lamptey and Ben White sublimated in Brighton…
Football league like English Premier League rarely lack talents thanks to the abundant rookies. The EURO final round is coming, and England is flourishing with talent such as helping coach Southgate with a Christmas present coming soon. He and his successors will no longer have a headache about the shortage of staff.
The pleasant headache of coach Southgate
Each team can only register 23 players for the EURO. As such, many talented people have to stay at home watching their teammates compete on television screens. Choosing and eliminating anyone is not an easy problem for Coach Southgate. Each decision he makes will bring joy and also break the player’s heart.
Many colleagues will be jealous of the 50-year-old military leader because he owns an array of talented players. According to journalist Mark Critchley of The Independent, England is enjoying a talent season, but there are still some shortcomings. They do not have uniformity at all levels.
As the left-back, only a few cards scored in the eyes of coach Southgate. It was Ben Chilwell, Bukayo Saka or Maitland-Niles. Ryan Bertrand, Aaron Cresswell, and Luke Shaw can be Selected instead, however, these are not very outstanding faces.
“Three Lions” also do not have the depth of personnel in the right striker position. Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood are the top candidates. In general, this is not England’s golden generation. Because every player in the starting lineup is not the best in the world.
Alexander-Arnold made great progress, but his journey to becoming the number one right-back in the world is still far away. Ben Chilwell, Declan Rice, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, or Jadon Sancho are all talented, but they are not the top stars in the world and are different from the rest.
More than a decade ago, England participated in the World Cup with the golden generation including Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Ashley Cole, Wayne Rooney… At that time, they all expected the “Three Lions” to make things happen. After all, the sweetest thing didn’t happen. England’s golden generation has failed, so what can fans expect from the current age of players?
