England should just have completed their final round of friendlies before Gareth Southgate was due to name his 2021 European Championships squad. But COVID-19 has seen to it that this has not been the case. England Vs Croatia Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.

The tournament had been due to take place in June but will kick off next summer instead. In a surprising turn of events, UEFA acted quickly and came to the only logical decision: postponing Euro 2021.

Moving the Euros back by 12 months has given domestic European leagues much-needed breathing space. Three Lions hopefuls also have a further year to press home their case for inclusion to Southgate. So who could benefit?

Mason Holgate

In January 2019, Holgate was loaned to West Bromwich Albion. No longer a regular at Everton, the center-back thrived on loan at The Hawthorns. But he played at right-back instead of center-half.

Little more than a year later Holgate is being linked with Manchester City. Tall, commanding and good on the ball, he has benefitted hugely from working under Carlo Ancelotti.

The former Milan boss has coached some of the best defenders in modern history. Holgate has clearly taken the Italian’s advice on board but Southgate will need to make a decision soon. The 23-year-old qualifies for Jamaica as well as England. Football fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets from our global event ticket sales market.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

The hype around Wan-Bissaka has grown steadily since his Crystal Palace debut towards the end of the 2017/18 season. Now Manchester United’s first-choice right-back, England honors are inevitable.

Wan-Bissaka earned his first call-up last August for qualifiers against Kosovo and Bulgaria. But injury denied the tackling machine his Three Lions debut and the wait goes on for his debut.

England is blessed at right-back and that is a problem for Wan-Bissaka. Trent Alexander-Arnold stars for Liverpool on a weekly basis but isn’t a guaranteed starter. Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier are knocking about too but at 29 their days are numbered.

Bukayo Saka

The flying Arsenal winger has been one of the revelations of the 2019/20 season. Though it’s at full-back, rather than further forward, that the 19-year-old has really caught the eye.

Arsenal fans do not remember Unai Emery fondly. But they do have the Spaniard to thank for Saka’s first-team introduction. The fleet-footed left-side can defend as well as attack and became the first teenager since Cesc Fabregas to record ten assists in a single season for Arsenal.

Ben Chilwell is the first choice for England right now but, behind him, Danny Rose’s place is up for grabs. On loan at Newcastle United from Tottenham Hotspur, Rose has never quite made the England No.3 jersey his own. Saka could secure another Arsenal victory in the north London rivalry by edging ahead in Southgate’s thinking over the coming months.

Dean Henderson

There is little doubt that, had the Euros gone ahead this summer, Jordan Pickford would have been England’s No.1. The Everton keeper’s form has been wretched. But Pickford is currently first-choice and retains his manager’s trust.

Henderson, meanwhile, has been superb. The Manchester United prospect has proven he can handle Premier League football. After winning promotion with Sheffield United, he has stepped up to perform consistently for the Blades with minimal fuss.

So good have Henderson’s displays been, there have been reports of interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea. United, some have claimed, are even considering selling David de Gea to clear the way for Henderson.

Called up for the first time in October, Henderson now has a year to prove he is a more reliable pair of hands than Pickford.
