Arsenal players set for a return to England squad
One of the biggest frustrations watching England is the lack of Arsenal players in the squad. That could soon change with at least three Arsenal players knocking on the door.
England lost this evening against the Czech Republic and there are clear areas of vulnerabilities. That is where the Arsenal players can play a role, or at least be considered.
Joe Willock, Calum Chambers and Bukayo Saka have to be in the thinking of England manager Gareth Southgate. Willock is certainly playing as well as any of the midfielders that faced the Czechs. Chambers is in better form than the likes of Harry Maguire. It may be a little early for Saka BUT he is also in better form than the likes of Rashford.
If form is the criteria and it tends to be with Southgate, then the Arsenal trio deserves to be in with a shout at the very least. Obviously, it is too late for this squad. But all that means is that they have to maintain their form for when the next squad is announced.
Put it this way, if they are still in form by the time the next squad is due to be named. Then they would have even more of a claim.
As both an Arsenal and England fan, I cannot wait for the return to the England squad of multiple Arsenal players.
