Liverpool beat Sterling’s City 3-1 on 10th Nov Sunday to move 9 points clear of the defending Premier League champions at the top of the table.

The Liverpool defender Joe Gomez and Sterling had to be separated by team-mates on Monday after a “physical hostility.”

The pair had also collided on the field towards the end of Sunday’s match.

In a statement delivered by the Football Association (FA), Southgate said: “We have taken the decision to not ponder Raheem for the match against Montenegro.”

“One of the great challenges and strengths for us is that we’ve been capable to separate club competitions from the national team. Unluckily the feelings of yesterday’s game were still raw.

Southgate said, their feeling is that the right thing for the team is the action they have taken. Now that the decision has been made with the agreement of the complete squad, it’s important that they support the players and focus on Thursday night.

Raheem Sterling has been one of the stars of England’s qualification campaign, scoring 8 goals in six matches.

“Both Joe and I have had words and figured things out and moved forward. We are in a sport where passions run high and I am man enough to admit when emotions got the better of me. Let’s get focus on our match on Thursday,” Sterling said on his Instagram account.

A draw against Montenegro at Wembley will be enough to surety England’s place at Euro 2020.

Euro 2020 qualifiers – Maddison, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Tomori make youthful England squad

James Maddison, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Fikayo Tomori have been named in a youthful England squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers with Montenegro and Kosovo. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase England Euro Cup Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.

Boss Gareth Southgate has released his 27-man squad for the double-header later this month, with Tyrone Mings, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, and Harry Winks retaining their places.

Dele Alli, Kyle Walker, and Jesse Lingard have failed to recapture their spots in the Three Lions’ squad, while Michael Keane loses his place after a tough international break in October.

Meanwhile, in-form Jack Grealish can count himself unlucky to miss out on a spot in the team and may have been hampered by his calf injury. On Grealish, Southgate revealed: “He’s a very good player. I’ve watched him closely this season.

The reality of that is that he’s up against Sterling, Rashford, Hudson-Odoi, Sancho in those wide areas. The competition in that area is a really high level.

“I think Jack’s a very good player. He’s very close. He’s just got to keep playing the way he is, and if we had issues over the weekend, I wouldn’t hesitate to call him into the squad.”

Explaining the unusually large squad size, Southgate said: “The squad is a little bit larger size than normal.

“There are one or two injury doubts. Hopefully, we get through the next few days without any problems.”

Southgate went on to say he’s recalled Oxlade-Chamberlain as he has a real belief in him while praising Hudson-Odoi’s dedication and motivation to come back from injury.

Walker’s absence was also purely down to the incredible form of Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold, according to the England boss.

Maddison and Tomori are then only uncapped players in the squad – with both somewhat unfortunate to miss out on their first games for the senior team against Bulgaria and Czech Republic last month.

Euro 2020 – Fans can’t believe Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish is not in England squad

Gareth Southgate announced his newest England national squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kosovo and Montenegro and one omission has discontented fans. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase England Euro Cup Tickets online to the witness live performance of Euro Cup 2020.

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has not been called up to the newest Three Lions squad but fans consider he should have been.

Grealish did miss Villa’s 2-1 defeat by Liverpool due to a calf problem last weekend but has captivated in the Premier League this season.

Fan wrote on Twitter: ‘Only Kevin De Bruyne (29) has generated more chances from open play in the Premier League this season than Jack Grealish (24). Little stat for anyone that does not believe Jack’s good sufficient to play for England.’

Another sporter said that Ross Barkley and Fabian Delph have prepared the England squad over Jack Grealish. Literally shocks our mind! BAFFLED. Some fans equated Grealish to some of the midfielders that were nominated by Southgate. 

One fan wrote: “Cracking decision to have Winks and Delph in the England national squad and leave out Grealish…”

On the other hand, somebody tweets about Grealish: “Not picking Grealish shows that Southgate has completely changed his mind, what he said about selecting on form players. Barkley? Hudson-Odoi? Ox? Delph?”

Barkley hasn’t played 90 mints all season but let’s put him in over Grealish who is playing some of his best football he’s ever played, one fan remarked.

Grealish was suitable for both England and Ireland but has confirmed that he anticipates following his international career with the former.

Fan wrote in his tweet, Not going to lie if he was Grealish he is going back to play for Ireland as getting into the England team is a travesty.

In the absence of Grealish, Southgate said: ‘He’s a very good player – I have watched him closely this season. The actuality of that is he’s up against (Raheem) Sterling, (Callum) Hudson-Odoi, (Marcus) Rashford and (Jadon) Sancho in those extensive areas.

England manager Gareth Southgate explains concern ahead of Euro 2020

England looks sure to clinch qualification for Euro 2020 this week but manager Gareth Southgate confesses there are still concerns about his team in the important area of central defence. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase England Euro Cup Tickets online to the witness live performance of Euro Cup 2020.

The national team manager has hacked and changed players in this position but a stable partnership remains indefinable.

His reaction this time is to recall John Stones, who has played just a couple of games for Manchester City after improving from injury.

But it was clear there is still no place in Southgate’s thinking for Chris Smalling, even if the 28-year-old has been winning glowing appraisals for his performances this season on loan at Roma in the Italian League, where he has been nicknamed “The Wall”.

Southgate’s new policy has been to pick players who are playing frequently and strongly for their club sides, yet Smalling is not on the radar.

“It’s a region of the field where we have not finalized those positions for sure, so there’s an opportunity,” says the England manager. “But Chris was not one we thought of this month because I think the players who played in the last game against Bulgaria earn the opportunity.”

“John (Stones) has been a large part of what we’re doing. There’s no point in bringing Chris in the way we would with somebody like a young player, Fikayo Tomori, for whom to be with us and train with us is important.”

Chris has got lots of caps and if they were bringing him in, it would be to play really. So that was not a consideration this time.

For some time Gareth Southgate has been enthusiastic for English players to move in a foreign country to strong clubs like Roma if they are not getting regular time in the Premier League.

England plays against Montenegro on 14 November and after that plays in Kosovo three days later. Gareth Southgate’s side is top of Group A and needs one more point to secure their place at Euro Cup 2020. Southgate thought he named a larger than normal 27-man squad on Thursday because there was a join of injury fears.

Attacking midfielder Ross Barkley has missed Chelsea’s last six games, with his most recent presence having come in a 1-0 win against Newcastle United on 19 October.

England squad:

Goalkeepers list comprises Dean Henderson of Sheffield United which is on loan from Manchester United, Jordan Pickford of Everton, and Nick Pope of Burnley.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Leicester), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Danny Rose (Tottenham), John Stones, Fikayo Tomori (Chelsea) and Ciaran Trippier (Atletico Madrid) are defenders.

Gareth recalls Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers

Gareth Southgate has recalled Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, John Stones and Callum Hudson-Odoi for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo. Fans from all over the world can buy England Euro Cup Tickets online.

The England manager has also included Mason Mount, despite concerns over an ankle injury he sustained in Chelsea’s Champions League tie against Ajax, which means that Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish misses out.

There is a relief for James Maddison who has been selected by Southgate despite the manager being concerned at the Leicester City midfielder being photographed at a casino the day after he withdrew from the last England squad through illness.

As expected Stones is selected having returned to the Manchester City team of late with Michael Keane missing out. The central defender played poorly in England’s 2-1 defeat away to the Czech Republic and has also recently lost his place at Everton.

Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori and Villa’s Tyrone Mings keen their places as does Ross Barkley which will come as a relief to the midfielder who has not started any of Chelsea’s last five matches.

Despite an apparent return to form there is no place for Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli in the 27-man squad with Southgate also resisting the temptation to include Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

England can seal qualification with at least a draw against Montenegro at Wembley which will also be their 1,000th international.

I wouldn’t hesitate to call him into the squad, here’s Southgate on Grealish’s absence. The competition in that area is high level – they’re all good players, Jack’s a very good player – I worked with him in the under-21s so I know all about him.

“He’s very close, he just has to keep playing the way he is, and if we had issues over the weekend, I wouldn’t hesitate to call him into the squad.”

Dele Alli left out as James Maddison returns England squad for Euro 2020 double-header

Dele Alli and Kyle Walker are left dreading for their international futures after being excluded from England boss Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kosovo and Montenegro.

Southgate selected instead to include James Maddison in spite of the controversy surrounding his back down from last month’s double-header. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase England Euro Cup Tickets online to the witness live performance of Euro Cup 2020.

England want just a draw when Montenegro visit Wembley next Thursday to reach next summer’s finals and this month’s matches are the final opportunity for players to impress before a mid-season international break until March.

That break comes at a wrong time for Alli and Walker, who now face a battle to demonstrate they remain part of Southgate’s plans. Tottenham star Alli has not contained for England since June’s Uefa Nations League third-place ­play-off against Switzerland, partially due to a hamstring injury that shortened his participation at the start of the season.

Though, the 23-year-old has started Spurs’ last five games in all competitions – including Wednesday night’s 4-0 Champions League victory at Red Star Belgrade – and had expected to be recalled.

Maddison has instead been given the signal, with Mason Mount also now forward of Alli in the pecking order.

Southgate planned this morning to include the Chelsea midfielder but only subject to last-mint looks over the harshness of an ankle injury sustained in Tuesday’s draw with Ajax on 5th November.

James Maddison set to be called up by England despite casino argument

James Maddison is given another chance in the England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kosovo and Montenegro. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase England Euro Cup Tickets online to the witness live performance of Euro Cup 2020.

England played the Bulgaria and Czech Republic last month but Maddison, who has yet to win a cap, pull out from the squad because of sickness. The Leicester midfielder was then pictured in a casino during 2-1 defeat in Prague.

Gareth Southgate names his squad on Thursday for the Wembley fixture against Montenegro, which will be the 1,000th international of England and will be played next Thursday, and the match in Kosovo the coming Sunday.

Maddison is predictable to be rewarded for his good form in Leicester’s push to third place in the Premier League.

Whether he is joined in the national squad by Jack Grealish remains to be seen. The Aston Villa playmaker is in Southgate’s opinions and although a calf injury ruled him out of the 2-1 home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday – a match that Southgate appeared – he has been professed fit by the Villa manager, Dean Smith.

Southgate must select whether he can find the room for Grealish and Maddison, who are similar types of players and have no experience at the senior international level.

Mason Mount is an injury doubt, having been expelled of Chelsea’s 4-4 Champions League draw against Ajax on 5th Nov with an ankle problem, and his clubmate Ross Barkley is waiting to learn if he will be called up.

Barkley kicked off the 6-0 victory against Bulgaria in Sofia, scored twice and did well but he has since played only 43 mints for Chelsea. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dele Alli are pushing for recalls and stand to advantage if Mount or Barkley were not to be included. Jesse Lingard is likely to miss out again.

Gareth Southgate is predictable to recall the fit-again John Stones, who has reverted to Manchester City’s starting line-up since the last international break, and that could be bad news for Michael Keane.

The Everton center-half is struggling to find his best position and was released for his club’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Sunday.

The Football Association (FA) will rejoice the landmark match against Montenegro by pleasing the 1966 World Cup winners to Wembley, plus every former England captain and every player to have won 50 caps or more.

Mason Mount – Chelsea midfielder is injured against Ajax and could miss England’s two Euro 2020 qualifiers

Mason Mount was forced off with an ankle injury during Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Ajax on 5th Nov, Tuesday evening and could miss England’s final two Euro 2020 qualifiers. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase England Euro Cup Tickets online to the witness live performance of Euro Cup 2020.

The 20 years old has played a key role in Frank Lampard’s side this season but may now be deliberated a doubt for upcoming Saturday’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace.

Before this season Mason Mount injured his right ankle ensuing a strong tackle from Francis Coquelin during Chelsea’s defeat at home to Valencia in the Champions League in September.

And now the midfielder suffered another problem with the same right ankle against Ajax as he collided with Donny van de Beek.

Asked for an update on Mason Mount’s injury after the match, Lampard said: “I don’t know. He’s strapped his ankle and we hope it’s comparatively minor, but that’s one for the morning.”

Mount stayed on the ground for a few mints before he was exchanged by Callum Hudson-Odoi in the 60th minute. The midfielder was able to walk to the pitch but was sternly limping and was unable to put much weight on his right ankle as he made his way down the tunnel.

Mount has already recognized himself as a key player in only his first season as a Chelsea regular scoring 3 goals and earning his England debut in September.

The distressing thing for Chelsea is that it seems to be the same ankle he injured on his Champions League first appearance in September against Valencia.

There were initial worries that he had damaged ankle ligaments – but in the end, it was exposed to be a wrenched ankle.

And Mount even performed a marvelous recovery to pass a late fitness to start the next match 2-1 loss against Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Euro 2020 – England planning big celebrations for 1,000th men’s international

England’s former captains, World Cup winners, and most capped players have been invited to the country’s 1,000th men’s international against Montenegro. Sports fanatics can book England Euro Cup Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.

November’s Euro 2020 qualifier at Wembley will see the Three Lions become the first country to clock up 1,000 senior men’s internationals, 147 years since the first against Scotland.

England is marking the occasion in a number of ways, including recognizing the notable contributions of former internationals while the current crop will wear individual ‘legacy numbers’ on their shirts.

Southgate, who represented his country fifty-seven (57) times and has the legacy number 1,071, believes the November 14 qualifier will be an occasion to remember.

“It encapsulates the history and the importance of the team going back right the way through,” the Three Lions boss said.

We talk to the players about the badge on the front of the shirt and how we are a small part of that history. It’s important we respect the shirt and leave it in a better place than when we found it if you like.

“So, to be involved in this game is a particularly poignant moment, especially given that some of our great former players will be at the match as well.”

England’s 1966 World Cup winners have been invited to the Montenegro match, as have all former captains and players to have reached 50 caps. Viv Anderson, recognized as the first black professional footballer to represent England at senior level, will also be at the qualifier in recognition of his own notable role in the national team’s history.

Football Association chairman Greg Clarke will present those in attendance with their own unique legacy number memento, while UEFA has granted a special dispensation allowing the current players to have their numbers on display under the crest for the 1,000th game.

Southgate, who was presented with his own legacy number on a visit to an exhibition celebrating England’s past at the National Football Museum in Manchester, said: “We didn’t have that when I was playing, and I used to look at the cricket team with the number on the shirt.

Again, it just makes you very proud that you see how few people have actually managed to achieve that and of course, we always want to win and win trophies with England, but also it’s about individual achievement.

Euro 2020 qualifiers - England planning big celebrations for 1,000th men's international

To become an England international is such a difficult and long journey for every player and for their families, for what it means to their family, their community, the school they went to, the boys’ or youth club, Sunday team they played for.

“So, it is important sometimes to just take a step back and remember what that’s about.”

The legacy number will become a reference point long beyond the 1,000th game, but the digits will be moved into the inside of each collar after playing Montenegro – an occasion that offers the chance to wrap up Euro 2020 qualification.

“We’ve got to get the balance right for the team of enjoying this occasion and the build-up to a special game, but equally our job on the night is to qualify for a European Championship,” Southgate said.

That can lead to some more brilliant nights like we’ve had the chance to walk around and remind ourselves of today.
