criticized the England roster.
“Graeme Souness, a former Liverpool legend, has questioned Gareth Southgate’s England squad,” the Chelsea Chronicle reported today (Aug. 19). “Raheem Sterling is more of a threat than Jack Grealish, so I don’t know why he’s not in the squad,” Sunnes said.
England won their Euro 2024 qualifier against Malta 2-0 on Sept. 19. Maltese defender Pepe scored an own goal in the eighth minute and Harry Kane added a second in the 30th minute.
Grillisch, whom Sunes criticized, did not play in the game. Unsurprisingly, his place in the squad has been called into question. Sterling, meanwhile, hasn’t been called up to the England squad since the 2022 World Cup in Qatar last November.
The two players have been on opposite ends of the spectrum this season. Sterling is one of the players who has been doing his job while Chelsea has been struggling. In 14 appearances in all competitions this season, he has scored five goals and provided two assists. He even scored Chelsea’s second goal against his hometown team Manchester City in the 12th round of the Premier League on the 13th.
On the other hand, in 13 appearances in all competitions this season, Griezmann has just two assists. A very disappointing streak for City. Grealish joined City from Aston Villa ahead of the 2021-22 season. At the time, City paid a whopping £100 million for the player. 보스토토 주소
However, he has been criticized for not getting his money’s worth. In addition, City signed Jeremy Dockoo, who is a competitor for Griezmann’s position, ahead of this season. Dockoo has four goals and six assists in 16 appearances this season.
