With upcoming international matches against Wales (friendly) and Belgium (Nations League), Gareth Southgate has named his 30-man squad. In full, the squad:
Dean Henderson (gk)
Jordan Pickford (gk)
Nick Pope (gk)
Many people have been confused by this selection. Players like Lewis Dunk, Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden have been left out of the squad. The last two aren’t too surprising as despite their recent form, their antics during their last England callup the pair broke quarantine rules and had to be sent home from the squad.
Despite the match on the 8th of October being a friendly, it won’t be played like that due to the intense rivalry between England and Wales. However, the match against Belgium will be taken more seriously due to it being a big game in their Nations League group.
