Gareth Southgate was a guest of TalkSport on their breakfast show this morning and spoke about the options he has for the number 10 role at this summer’s rearranged Euro 2020 tournament.

Southgate admitted he has some “big decisions” to make, but that sometimes the decisions are made for you.
“When you’ve got a choice of some outstanding talent, now of course there’s big decisions you have to make. But in the end you know, some of these decisions are sadly taken out of your hands.
“I mean, if I look at the squad for March, we’re already without Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, Harvey Barnes. James Justin who we think has been doing exceptionally well at Leicester, is going to be out. “
“So, you know, how many of these guys are available. There’s others who aren’t playing a the moment.”
“And then actually it’s just a case of ‘right, who’s playing the best’. Who do we think has the pedigree, who’s performed at the high level before coupled with who’s in the form, who fits into the way we want to play without the ball?
“So, yes, of course there’s a lot of talent in those attacking areas, but what’s really exciting is that for years we’ve talked about development in English football and where are the creative players, how do we develop those types of players.”
Praise for Arsenal pair
