Emile Smith Rowe rewarded for his impressive Arsenal form

Emile Smith Rowe has finally earned international recognition after being named in the latest England squad by Gareth Southgate, as reported by the Arsenal website.

The midfielder has been one of the Gunners’ best players in this campaign as he continues to score the goals and provide assists for them.

His fine form has even relegated summer signing Martin Odegaard to the bench in Arsenal’s recent matches.

It was only a matter of time before the midfielder earned a call-up to the senior England squad.

He has been an important member of the country’s Under-21 squad, but he will now mix it with the big boys in this international window.

Smith Rowe has been one of the best players in the Premier League this season and has rightly earned his call-up to the senior England squad.

His teammate and fellow Arsenal academy graduate, Bukayo Saka has become a mainstay in the senior England national team and was even a part of the squad at Euro 2020.

Smith Rowe would hope he can also establish himself in the Three Lions squad, but he knows the competition for a place is fierce and he has to be at his best all the time to keep getting called up.

  1. Great news.

    We currently have:

    – England’s number 1 (I already count Ramsdale as the first choice)
    – great young left-winger who can seize starting spot from struggling Sterling
    – now Smith-Rowe

    I don’t think White is far away from call up either. Coady and Mings have been very or below average.

    Question is, who is next from Arsenal in the English national team if we’re not counting White?

  2. A bit off topic, but I think its likely Leno will be sold either this January or next summer the latest. Who to replace him?

    My thinking is we replace him with our own Karl Hein from U23, who has been decent.

    Let’s not forget he already has 12 caps for his country (Estonia) despite being just 19 years old!

    Now, some might think because Estonia isn’t all that good side it’s not that big of a deal, but as I’ve followed international football, majority of players selected are always playing for senior sides You almost never see youth team players in your senior national side. That makes Hein quite special.

    We did it with Szczesny so surely we can do it with Hein too?
