It’s never too early to start talking about the England squad is it?

Although given the amount of international football we’re subjected to throughout the majority of the club season, I suppose it never really escapes you does it? And as a result, neither does the talk of who is going to be selected for the national team.

And that is precisely what these Sheffield United fans were doing as a result of a certain individual who made his way to Bramall Lane over the weekend, as Gareth Southgate was in attendance to see the Blades pay out a 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Will a Blade make the England squad in the summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And although there were no Englishmen on the scoresheet, with the Blades’ flying high in the Premier League, there would still be a lot for the England boss to think about as he gets his team ready for friendlies at the end of next month. And there were a number of Blades fans who were left to wonder just who would be the lucky men, if any, to get a call-up.

The last Blade to play for England was Brian Deane back in the early 1990’s, so it’s certainly been a while. Is now the time we break our streak?
