While Ross Barkley, Jesse Lingard, and Dele Alli have acquitted themselves well in recent years, an emerging crop of youngsters is hitting top gear as we approach Euro 2020. Euro 2020 fans can book England Vs Czech Republic Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Jose Mourinho’s surprise selection as Spurs manager has coincided with Dele Alli’s renewal as a Premier League force. 23 years old Alli has finally remembered where the net is, and his current form undoubtedly thrusts him back into Southgate’s thoughts. Having earned his stripes as a separate number ten at Spurs, Southgate would be sensible to look away.
Fan-favorite Jack Grealish has been putting up impressive numbers whilst dragging Aston Villa through games this season. After contributing to 12 goals in 23 league games, talk has intensified about his long-awaited England call up. His raw talent is clear to see, but he remains a gamble.
His recent Villa heroics have come largely from the wing, and his inexperience on the global stage suggests that the tournament may just come too soon for him. Phil Foden, still just 19-years-old, is tipped for international greatness in years to come. However, his lack of sport time for Manchester City means he is almost convinced to miss out this time around.
Elsewhere, Mason Mount has previously overwhelmed just six-months into his top-flight career. Southgate has been an outspoken lover of Mount, although his recent plateau in form leaves the door ajar for more exciting prospects to step in. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has washed-out a major period side-lined by grievance.
When he has featured under Jurgen Klopp he has been magnificent. As a thrilling, hard-working midfielder with bags of aptitude going forward, ‘The Ox’ stands a real chance of muscling his way in if he can build up a run of games during the back end of the season.
The Chosen One
James Maddison’s sole appearance as a 56th-minute substitute in November is a discredit to his form and ability. It appears that Southgate does not see Maddison as a long-term solution, but the fact is there is no player more deserving of a step up in international responsibility.

Maddison has been a reliable player since his Premier League bow 18-months ago. His ability to salivate, drive forward, exhibit a wide range of passing and find the top corner from long range gives him the ideal skill-set to give England’s midfield trio an attacking edge.
Having broadly matched Grealish for goals and assists this campaign, Maddison is ahead of all names mentioned in terms of Premier League chances created. The 23-year-old’s talent has permitted him to amaze for a Leicester City side competing valiantly at the business end of the table.
Furthermore, his advanced midfield position alongside Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemens is similar to what would be demanded of him in Southgate’s preferred 4-3-3. In the past, England managers have tended to stick with the tried and tested in major tournaments.
In attacking midfield, England’s tried and tested contingent is simply not the best we have to offer. England’s stockpile of emerging talent in this regard gives Southgate plenty of choice. Ultimately, such varied options represent an effective weapon it remains to be seen whether we can use them effectively.
