The Leeds fans’ reaction was not to mention Patrick Bamford and Luke Aaling in the England squad
Posted On March 18, 2021
The latest England squad has been announced.
Leeds United fans are furious over Gareth Southgate’s decision to disqualify Patrick Bamford in their next match.
The Three Lions will begin their qualifying campaign for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in the last days of March. They start by welcoming San Marino to Wembley, before a trip to Albania. Finally, they will face Poland on their home turf.
Yesterday’s David Anderson of The Mirror claimed that Southgate is considering giving Bamford his debut for his country.
Luke Ayling was also under consideration, with Anderson claiming Southgate liked the right-back.
However, apart from Calvin Phillips, who kept his place on the side, neither Bamford nor Ealing were able to forge their way into the 26-man squad.
Bamford has been excellent this season with Leeds.
He has scored 13 goals so far and played a pivotal role for Leeds in his first season in the Premier League.
Southgate picked Ole Watkins as the Villa striker in the upcoming England matches. While Watkins did well for Via, Bamford brings a lot more to the side than just scoring goals.
