When looking at the English players’ statistics chart for the Premier League clubs, the Southgate manager felt insecure. He warned England could face an HR crisis. Statistics made by the British Football Association have become alarm bells for the national team and Southgate’s successors.
Coach Southgate’s worries have been resolved. England is experiencing a period of abundance of talent and is no longer living in the fear of a shortage of player supply 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 increase in England’s talent pool 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 rally in October, coach Southgate called 30 people.
Harvey Barnes is right. Wanting to know how strong a national team is, one often looks at players who have been out of the team or have not been recruited.
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.
Even Aaron Wan-Bissaka, one of the top-quality defenders in the Premier League, has not been given the opportunity 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. Many young faces are also more fashionable.
They learn the way Jadon Sancho used to do, ie go abroad to play to improve their level and look for more opportunities to play. Jude Bellingham and Jamal Musiala accepted to go to the Bundesliga to play football, although they were still young. Their decision is considered wise.
