England Players' Wives And Girlfriends Approached For Netflix Series

England players' wives and girlfriends have reportedly been approached by Netflix to make a documentary about their time at this winter's World Cup.

It's been a rough week for the national team as their preparations for Qatar in November has continued with the Nations League games that few people want.

Saturday night's draw with Italy, thanks to Aaron Ramsdale's first half save, meant that they failed to win a game for three matches in-a-row for the first time in four years.

Gareth Southgate has seen his methods questioned, especially following the loss last week to Hungary, but it's highly unlikely he'd be removed before the World Cup.

However, he could be given a fresh headache, with the Sun reporting the Netflix have approached those closest to the players about a documentary for their time in the Middle East.

"The proposed docu-series would show off the luxury lifestyle these women lead as they support their other halves in the World Cup lead up," a source told the paper.

"There is huge interest in them again as England prepare for the tournament. There is a wish-list in place of the women they want. Very substantial fees are being offered.

"However, it’s certain Gareth Southgate would strongly disapprove of any wives or girlfriends signing up to it, as it would be a major distraction to him and the players."

According to the report, Optomen TV, who have made programmes such as 'Great British Menu' and 'Tyson Fury: They Gypsy King,' have approached several women.

Dani Dyer, daughter of Danny Dyer, who became famous on Love Island, is one of those who is said to have been spoken to, as she is dating West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen, who has only just made his debut for the Three Lions.

Jack Grealish's long term girlfriend Sasha Attwood and Luke Shaw’s wife Anouska Santos are also said to potentially be involved.

Fans of the famed 'Wagatha Christie' saga will be very disappointed that Jamie Vardy is no longer in the national team, having retired, but the same tv production company are working on a Rooney vs Vardy show.

The report claims that the women have been offered up to £100 million to be involved in the show.

Southgate will worry that the presence of the cameras around players, and their families, could be a cause for distraction for the team.

Back in 2006 there was a lot made of the wives and girlfriends being in the German town of Baden-Baden, where the team training camp was.

The team didn't perform well and were knocked out of the quarter finals and Southgate will certainly be hoping that his team fare better, as they attempt to win a trophy for the first time in 56 years.
