Roma defender Chris Smalling still faiths he can make England’s Euro 2020 squad although not playing for Gareth Southgate’s team since 2017. Euro 2020 fans can book England Vs Czech Republic Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
The 30-year-old, on loan from Manchester United, says he has become a better player since moving to Series A. The centre-back also said his family feels established in Rome and suggested he wants to stay in Italy next season.
Chris Smalling told BBC Sport
“Evidently it’s been a couple of years now, but that determination is always there with England, I know that Gareth and the coaching staff have been to a few of my games over here.
I guess you know you are in their thoughts if you are playing at a top club. I hold those aspirations, and I just try to focus on here and what comes, comes. But I would very much like to be part of the Euros, for sure.”
Chris, who has thirty-one England caps, would face rivalry to make Euro 2020 from Manchester United’s Harry Maguire, Liverpool’s Joe Gomez, Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings, Manchester City’s John Stones, Everton’s Michael Keane, and Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori.
But Stones and Tomori have not been playing frequently for their clubs and Smalling says he has learned more about the art of defending since joining Roma in August. Euro 2020 fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
He added. “I feel like I’m picking up a lot of Italian styles, and tactics and how to manage games. I’m definitely adding to my game, I feel like I’m learning and improving.”
England’s next game is a friendly against Italy at Wembley on 27 March, with its Euro 2020 opener against Croatia on 14 June. Smalling is on a season-long loan at the Italian team, who are fifth in Series A, and has been related with a move back to the Premier League at the end of the season.
Smalling about stay in Rome
Smalling said: “Yeah, I think the plan at the start of the spell was to donate as much as I can and then hopefully if we’ve all had a good season and hit our ambitions then those deliberations can take place. I’ve been more than happy with my first half of the season, it’s now just making sure that we kick on and finish the season strongly because we have a lot to play for.”
“Coming over here and trying to hit the ground running with football was the priority. But my family settling in and me learning the language and enjoying the culture, it’s something you need to make the most of my family and I definitely are.”
