Arsenal starter tipped to miss the Qatar World Cup

Arsenal is the top club on the Premier League table now, and this means their players will be considered for international duty by their respective nations.

With the World Cup around the corner, footballers around the globe are working hard to get noticed by their countries.

Some Arsenal stars represent nations that do not have players at top European clubs, so it is almost certain they will play for their national team in every window.

However, there are some who face serious competition for a playing place in international football because they play in a country with top players.

One man in that situation at the Emirates is Ben White. Despite starting all seven Arsenal league games this season, Gareth Southgate snubbed him in the latest England squad.

The defender remains one player that impresses for Arsenal, but he is not guaranteed a Three Lions shirt, and Express Sport says he risks missing out on the World Cup.

Just Arsenal Opinion

White has been a key member of Mikel Arteta’s squad this term, and the defender deserves to play international football.

However, England has an abundance of centre-backs on their team, and it would be hard for him to break into the side.

  1. He is still young and should continue to work hard. His turn will come .
    He’s one of our best players capable of filling more than just the CB position. That’s a credit. He’s a calm nice guy who focuses on his subject; ardly get injured

  2. It’s a win/win if they all don’t get called up. It reduces the risk of injuries and burnout leaving the team fresh and roaring to mount a top 4 challenge

  3. Wiser fans would surely agree with me and with Scarra above, when I SAY THAT IT IS FAR BETTER FOR ARSENAL THAT WE DO NOT HAVE MOST PLAYERS HAVING TO PLAY IN THE COMING WORLD CUP.

    Of course many will want to play, this is natural, but far better for us that they are not picked. REALITY!

  4. I agree with you guys thats why i predict this seasonz champion will not exceed 85 points due to worldcup

  5. The fact is that Southgate didn’t good enough to coach England team, because, he left out those who deserved to play for the country and called for those who just started to shine for few months. Why they have already executed from European Nations league competition, that is the result. Nevermind, it’s advantageous for Arsenal, because, they have a big match ahead after international break. We need to win that game in all cost to mentain the table.

  6. I can’t imagine Maguire starting ahead of him.
    Southgate needs to reevaluate his squad list for this world cup if england means to put up a fight or they’ll be embarrassed.
