Southgate calls for England support

08 October 2017

The Arsenal man has not been in an England squad since last November, but has impressed in his recent performances for Arsene Wenger's side.

MANAGER Gareth Southgate acknowledges England have to improve, but has warned there is only so much that can be achieved before the World Cup.

Another injury time victor from Harry Kane gave England the win but for most of the game they were crying out for the sort of creativity that we all know our Jack can produce.

"At the moment they just need the chance to grow". We're in an era where it must be hard for the supporters to relate to players because of what they earn and all of the hullabaloo that is around them.

Jack Butland, Michael Keane and Jesse Lingard are among those pushing for starts on an artificial pitch in Vilnius, while Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks could make his debut after earning his first call-up to the national squad this week. What are we really good at? "Go ask the Dutch team".

England manager Gareth Southgate has hinted that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could be set for a shock recall to the worldwide scene, as the Three Lions boss looks to add some much needed creativity to his central midfield.

Halep going close in yet another bid to be No. 1
In the quarter-finals, she meets the victor between 11th-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland and Russian Daria Kasatkina. Halep will be making her fourth straight appearance in the Republic.

"I feel great, every game I expect to score and want to score".

"I played in front of Peter Shilton and for 90 minutes, he would rip your head off for a clean sheet. September was fantastic for me, hopefully October can be even better", he said.

"You are always at tournaments to win football matches but you also have to be thinking what is realistic", he said.

"Fingers crossed we can do it this time or at least show what we're capable of".

And that appeared to be in the minds of England players as they enjoyed a jovial atmosphere in a light training session, including what appeared to be a quick round of a playground classic. "If you look at the average age of teams that win World Cups we're about three to four years younger than that".

Joachim Low's men have secured their spot in Russian Federation next year by winning all their nine qualifiers. "This is a game where we want to give a strong performance and win", he said.
