Gareth Southgate Considering Shock Recall To The England Squad

Gareth Southgate Considering Shock Recall To The England Squad

There's another pesky international break just around the corner, and Gareth Southgate is reportedly considering a shock recall to the England squad.

After securing their spot in Russia, England face Germany and Brazil at Wembley Stadium next month ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

The November 10th clash with Germany is followed up with a tasty fixture against Brazil four days later.

And it appears Southgate is planning on recalling Jay Rodriguez per Telegraph. The England boss was in attendance on Monday night as West Bromwich Albion squared off against Leicester City in the Premier League.

Rodriguez spearheaded Tony Pulis' side before being hauled off in the 84th minute. Despite the one goal in seven Premier League outings, the 28-year-old is on Southgate's radar for his attacking approach.

The striker made his England bow in 2013 against Chile in an international friendly, but he's failed to add to that tally. Though he has been blighted with several injuries.

Since his last England cap, Rodriguez secured a move across the league. He transferred to West Brom for a reported £12 million fee in the summer.

Naturally, the possible inclusion of Rodriguez in the England set-up sent social media rife:

While the likes of Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford are pretty much certain to be on the plane to Russia, the other striking options are still up for grabs.

Could Rodriguez get the nod? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
