  • What They're Saying: Gareth Southgate

    "It is up to the player to weigh up where his heart feels. Is he prepared to wait a little bit for an opportunity if he backs himself and feels he can push his way into our squad? Because anybody who has followed us will know that we will give young players a chance. So, we cannot go and give first-team call-ups to someone just because we don't want them to go somewhere else. We like Flo. He has obviously not had an opportunity in the Premier League yet, so we have to weigh up those goals to Ivan [Toney], for example, or Ollie Watkins. Or Eddie Nketiah, who has done really well with the opportunity he has had at Arsenal. I know there are going to be offers as 80 per cent of our players can play for more than one country now, and we are not arrogant expecting everybody to want to come to play for England. We have to make them feel wanted and feel part of that."

    -- England coach Gareth Southgate on Folarin Balogun, who was not called up for England's Euro 2024 qualifiers and withdrew from England's U-21 camp amid speculation that he will file a switch of association to play for the USA at the senior level. Balogun, who is also eligible to play for Nigeria, has scored 17 Ligue 1 goals for Reims on loan from Arsenal. (Daily Mail)
