Gareth Southgate announced England’s squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria on October 11 and 14, respectively.
While Manchester United’s Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford have been included in the squad, Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been left out.
And after announcing the squad, Southgate has explained why Lingard isn’t in the England squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers.
“Jesse’s had a difficult period with his club and I think in those areas of the pitch we’ve got players who are scoring more regularly at the moment and are in very good form,” said the England boss. (via MEN)
Meanwhile, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been left out because of illness.
