Roy Keane claims England players 'won't be happy' with huge Gareth Southgate decision

Roy Keane claims England players 'won't be happy' with huge Gareth Southgate decision

Roy Keane suspects England players 'won't he happy' with Gareth Southgate's decision.

Roy Keane says England players 'won't be happy' with Gareth Southgate's decision in their big win over Serbia.

England kicked off their Euro 2024 campaign with a 1-0 victory against Serbia last Sunday.

Jude Bellingham headed home the only goal of the game as he showed his maturity during his post-match interview.

Despite the Three Lions recording three points in their Group C clash, critics and fans alike were left underwhelmed by the team's showing in Gelsenkirchen.

England looked comfortable in the early stages of the match before limping over the finish line.

People have backed Southgate to make a change to the starting XI ahead of their next game against Denmark on Thursday.

Speaking before last night's fixtures, Keane questioned Southgate's decision to play Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield against Serbia.

He continued by suspecting the likes of Kobbie Mainoo, Adam Wharton and Conor Gallager 'won't be happy' with the England boss' selection.

The former Manchester United captain said: "If you’re a midfielder in that squad and you see a right-back getting ahead of you in international football, you wouldn’t be happy."

Gary Neville suggested Southgate wants to play Gallagher, adding: "I think Gareth wants to get Gallagher into the team. He is obviously going to make unpopular decisions, he is not scared of it.

"But I think there is an element of wanting to get Gallagher in but he knows it will be deemed as being quite negative. He has not gone for Mainoo."

Ian Wright said: "You have to mention Wharton. Someone like him who can play on that half-turn, at some stage you have to look at him."

Mainoo and Gallagher entered the fray in the second-half against Serbia while Wharton was an unused substitute.

Mainoo and Wharton only have a combined five senior international caps between them, but their profile could provide balance to England's midfield.
