England play 3 games in 6 days as nations play catch up on World Cup Qualification so Southgate will need to use his squad wisely as I doubt club managers will be happy with players playing 3 full 90 minutes.
Thought Greenwood would make the cut having scored 2 in 2 a little bit surprised to see Bamford get picked ahead of him as that's 3 specialist centre forwards in the squad.
Interested to see what Southgate does with the team after the Euro's making it to the final and coming up short before the next works cup in 15 months he's probably got to find a way of being better on the ball against the stronger side which probably means ditching the number 10 and laying more of a 3 man midfield. I wonder if we might see Bellingham introduced into the side a bit more in the build up to the world cup.
He really is spoilt for choice in those attacking positions though don't think there's another country in the world who've got the quality in depth we have in those forward positions.
