Roy Keane names the one England player who "isn't good enough" to start at Euro 2024

Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes one England player isn't good enough to start at Euro 2024.

Having been finalists last time out before losing to Italy on penalties, England are one of the favourites to go all the way in Germany.

After breezing through qualifying, Gareth Southgate's side have been drawn in Group C alongside Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia.

England have quality all over the park, particularly going forward and in midfield.

In the middle of the park, England have two of the very best players in world football at present in Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham.

Both made huge moves in the summer but have been in fine form for their respective sides.

On the Stick to Football podcast, Gary Neville wondered whether Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher was a potential pick to make up a trio.

The former Crystal Palace loanee is a regular in squads and a starter for Mauricio Pochettino, who has handed him the captaincy this season following injuries to the likes of Reece James and Ben Chilwell.

He said: "The other one (option) is Conor Gallagher, who’s obviously played, but he’s a runner."

Keane, one of the best midfielders in Premier League history, was having none of it, however.

He replied: “No, I don’t think he’s good enough.”

With a fully fit squad, England have a number of selection dilemmas in attack - with the likes of Phil Foden, James Maddison, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka all options.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is also making a strong case for a starting berth in a midfield position.

And former England and Arsenal striker Ian Wright predicted England to finally get over the line this time around.

“You know something, France have to be the favourites, but you know what, I’m gonna say England,” Wright said.

“I’m gonna say England because we’ve been so close and I think this is probably the real, last go at it.”
