Two new players have been added to the England national football team ahead of the qualifying rounds in November. Marcus Rashford and Jude Bellingham were recalled from their clubs to play against Albania and San Marino.
Qualifying matches will be held this November, the result of which depends on England’s participation in Qatar-2022. Especially for this, Marcus Rashford and Jude Bellingham were recalled from Manchester United and German Borussia. It is noteworthy that the team did not find a place for other members of “Manchester” – Jadon Sancho and Jesse Lingard.
In addition to the already named athletes, Liverpool player Trent Alexander-Arnold, who last played for the national team on September 5th, as well as Harry Maguire, Rhys James, and Calvin Phillips are included in the national team.
According to Gareth Southgate, there is strong competition among the players for places in the national team. When asked about the mistakes of Sancho and Lingard, he replied that the form of these athletes is not enough, but he would be happy to see them on the team soon. For Sancho, this is another blow to his career after an unsuccessful transfer from Borussia.
