Gareth Southgate said England must rise to the expectations of being group favourites after a favourable draw for Euro 2020 qualifying left them well placed to reach the tournament with possible fixtures at Wembley, including the final. England had the best draw of the home nations when the groups were decided at a ceremony in Dublin on Sunday. They will face the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Kosovo as they attempt to reach a tournament that will be staged in 12 cities across the continent, including Glasgow, Dublin and London. “We’re favourites and that’s something we’ve got to start getting used to anyway,” said Southgate of the draw. “We’re going to have high expectations over the next few years and adapting to that is probably key to our development as a team now. “We should win the group. But if you don’t play well on any given day you drop points and that is the reality of dealing with those sorts of matches. … [Read more...] about Euro 2020 qualifying: Southgate urges England to deal with expectations

AARON WAN-BISSAKA has been called into the England squad for the first time to replace the dropped Kyle Walker. Manchester United star Wan-Bissaka has got the nod for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo. But Manchester City's Kyle Walker, normally first choice at right back, has been left out as Gareth Southgate says he wants to look at other options. Southgate said: "We tracked him all last year. "He’s adapted well and quickly to a high profile move and playing in front of 70,00 fans brings an intensity and pressure. "It’s an opportunity to look at two young players and we also wanted to reintegrate Kieran Tripper back into the group. He’s had a huge move to Atletico Madrid and started there really well."Kyle has started the season really well, he’s not playing badly, it’s the opposite. So we explained the rationale to him." Chelsea youngster Mason Mount has been rewarded for his fine form at the start of the season with his second … [Read more...] about Man Utd star Wan-Bissaka and Chelsea ace Mount in England squad but Southgate drops Walker for Euro 2020 qualifiers
HARRY WILSON claims qualifying for Euro 2020 with Wales would be "just as special" as Liverpool winning the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp's table-toppers are red-hot favourites to land the title for the first time since 1990 after their 3-1 triumph over Manchester City last Sunday extended their lead to eight points. Reds winger Wilson is likely to miss out on the potential glory at Anfield because he is on loan at Bournemouth. But the 22-year-old believes helping Ryan Giggs' side reach next summer's finals would be on a par. Wilson said: "I'm not disappointed because I’m on loan playing in the Premier League, which is what I’ve always wanted. "I'm still in contact with a few of the lads and to get a massive win on Sunday was great to see."I'm always keeping an eye on them and if I can get to a game I always will. "To see Liverpool win the Premier League would be fantastic, being a Liverpool fan, but to get to the Euros with Wales would be just as special." Wilson is … [Read more...] about Harry Wilson reckons Wales qualifying for Euro 2020 would be ‘just as special’ as Liverpool winning Premier League
