Former England defender Gary Neville has said that national team manager Gareth Saw will never win a major tournament with a center-back available to South Thagate.
England will play a friendly against Wales at Wembley Stadium this evening before the National League fixtures against Belgium on Sunday and Denmark on Wednesday.
Manchester United captain Harry Maguire joins Liverpool’s Joe Gomez, Everton’s Michael Keane, Wolves captain Conor Cody, Tottenham’s Eric Dyer and Burnley’s Tyrone Mings in the center-back.
Manchester City full back Kyle Walker was also included in the squad and had previously played one out three for England.
“I just don’t think the center-back partnership is what Gareth wants to take, where he wants to be, which is the final of a tournament and to win the tournament,” Neville said at the time. Sky Sports.
“Whether it’s Maguire and Gomez or Maguire and [John] Stone, I don’t think it’s going to be good enough. ”
Neville suggested that a lack of quality could force Saathe Thagat to pick a back-three, which he deployed during the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where England reached the semi-finals, and in the last match of the Three Lions. – 0-0 draw against Denmark in the Nations League.
“I think it needs the stability of all three,” Neville said. “I think Kyle Walker, probably as one of three, comes into it, because I think Trent is Alexander-Arnold wing-back.
“I think Walker can play there at his own pace. I think [Ben] Chilwell can play to the left of the last three or potential stones.
“I think with the players [Southgate] Got, England is better with three and so he went back to it.
“I was surprised he came out after the World Cup. It was the same thing [surprised me]”
