Aaron Ramsdale names two England teammates in his dream five-a-side team as well as Manuel Neuer after "insane" moment

Aaron Ramsdale names two England teammates in his dream five-a-side team as well as Manuel Neuer after "insane" moment

The Arsenal goalkeeper says Neuer did the most "insane" thing he ever witnessed on the pitch.

Aaron Ramsdale has named England teammates Jude Bellingham and Trent Alexander-Arnold in his dream five-a-side team.

The 26-year-old is currently in Germany after being named in Gareth Southgate's final 26-man squad for Euro 2024 alongside Jordan Pickford and Dean Henderson.

With Pickford establishing himself as Southgate's go-to goalkeeper in recent years, Ramsdale will likely go into this summer's tournament as their number two.

He was sparingly used by Mikel Arteta last season after being replaced as Arsenal's first-choice by David Raya, but Southgate has backed the former Bournemouth shot-stopper.

In fact, Ramsdale was handed a start in their friendly clash against Iceland last week.

Ahead of the opening game, Ramsdale opened up to YouTube channel That's Football about a range of subjects, including the potential of a week-long bank holiday if England bring it home.

The Stoke-born goalkeeper also revealed his dream five-a-side team.

"I’m going with a bit of the past, which is the two foreign lads, which are Zinedine Zidane and Kaka. That’s Adidas heritage right there," he said.

"And then I’ll keep it present with my two fellow Englishmen in Jude and Trent.

"Do I need a goalkeeper? Petr Cech was Adidas growing up … or Manuel Neuer. I’ll go with Neuer … the audacity he shows on the football pitch."

Ramsale would go on to speak about "the most insane thing" he'd ever seen on a football pitch involving Neuer.

"It was in the Champions League quarter-final in the first leg, he [Neuer] scooped the ball up with his right foot, Kai Havertz was pressing him, and he volleyed it over his head with his left foot in the first 15 minutes.”

Ramsdale continued: “The funny thing is when we were practising our press the day before I was trying to be Neuer and I said to Timber he’ll probably do something like a chip and a side volley and I said I’m not going to do it ever and the next day he did it. It was frightening.”

England will be hoping to make a positive start to their European Championship campaign on Sunday night, when they come up against underdogs Serbia in Gelsenkirchen.
