English national football is no longer in the fear of a shortage of talents (Part 2)

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.

Mr. Southgate is facing a new problem. This time, it was a pleasant headache.

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?

Concerns about coach Gareth Southgate’s shortage of strikers in England have been resolved.

In May 2019, when looking at the statistics chart of English players with main positions in Premier League clubs, the Southgate coach felt insecure. He warned England could face a players crisis.

The big change of English football over the years

The 50-year-old strategist has reason to worry. Statistics made by the British Football Association have become alarm bells for the national team and Southgate’s successors.

18 months later, the chart that once worried coach Southgate suddenly increased. The percentage of English players winning the main kick increased to 35.3% in the 2019/20 season and reached 36.6% in the early 2020/21 season.

The rise of England’s talents has been of great help to coach Southgate

Coach Southgate’s worries are resolved. England is experiencing a period of an abundance of talent and is no longer living in the fear of a short supply of players for the national team. The generation of English players who won the main kick in the 2020/21 season is also relatively young. Their average age is 25.

The rise of England’s talents has been of great help to coach Southgate. The 50-year-old military rulers have many options when summoning personnel for the national team. During the team gathering in October, coach Southgate called 30 faces. More than half of these players have less than 10 games in the “Three Lions” shirt.

Coach Southgate’s plan is very clear. He wants to allow every player, to find the strongest framework for the national team.

New talents of English football

Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood, talents of English football, were not summoned to the national team for mistakes in September. James Maddison and Ross Barkley have not been recruited due to injuries. However, England still has many cards to replace.

There are many young talents in English national football team this season

Even Aaron Wan-Bissaka, one of the top quality defenders in the Premier League, has not been allowed to recruit. Wan-Bissaka plans to choose to represent another national team. Because, he has to face many opponents for the right-back position such as Alexander-Arnold, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker.

According to The Independent, each position in the England starting lineup has three cards for coach Southgate to choose from. This is proof of English football talent.
