Gareth Southgate has extended his stay as England manager until 2022 after a successful campaign in Russia during this summer’s World Cup.
England made it all the way to the semi-finals for the first time in over 20 years, bringing the entire country together in their love of football once more.
One player who did miss out however was young Harry Winks, surely a nailed-on pick for the squad if not for his injury.
Southgate and The FA announced their England squad for the upcoming fixtures against Croatia and Spain this month, and Winks will be delighted to be included once again.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane (C), Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier and Eric Dier were also called up, with Dele Alli still out injured.
There were also call ups for youngsters Mason Mount, Jadon Sancho and James Maddison after impressive displays in the Championship, Bundesliga, and Premier League respectively.
Congratulations Winksy! Much deserved!
