Danny Rose is set to leapfrog Southampton left back Ryan Bertrand and take his place in England’s World Cup squad.
The 27-year-old Spurs defender has only featured in ten Premier League games this season due to injuries. However, he showed enough of his abilities in Sunday’s 5-4 victory over Leicester City to surpass Ryan Bertrand and land himself a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for Russia.
Also ahead of Bertrand is Manchester United left-back Ashley Young who is accompanied by Manchester City’s Fabian Delph who can be deployed in both midfield and defence.
This heart-breaking news will surely play on the mind of Bertrand who hasn’t done much wrong in his 19 appearances for England, or during this season at Southampton, despite their fight against relegation.
Rose and Young are said to fit in better into Southgate’s playing style, as the two are more offensive-minded.
Rose has performed well since his recent return from injury and this seems to have done enough to edge his way ahead of Bertrand into the World Cup squad.
