Chambers called up for England.
Gone from 2nd choice RB at Southampton at the start of last year to signing for Arsenal, starting at CB away in a massive CL qualifier and looking like a ******* natural then to getting a senior NT call up completely bypassing the U21s....at 19 y/o! What a few weeks for the kid!
I will say this though I really hope that Hodgson doesn't play him at CB, I dont want him to be locked in at CB as he has far too much to offer further up. Plays in midfield for the England U19s and only filled in at RB at Southampton because Clyne got injured.
The deep midfield spot is open in the future England midfield (with Gerrard and Lampard retiring) so I hope he doesn't get pegged as a CB when Roy can go for Stones/Smalling/Jones or something to play next to Cahill. Chambers is too calm on the ball and has too good of a pass on him to be wasted hoofing it upfield aimlessly as Roy will instruct.
Imagine a Euro starting lineup of..
...now that is something to be excited about!
*Yes I didn't put Barkley in the lineup as I think Ox could be the better AM as he has everything Barkley has in his locker but he (Ox) actually can pick his head up and pass...which is a pretty vital skill to have when playing AM
Also I feel so bad for Gibbs. Cole is done and Shaw camped at the all you can eat...it would have been a prefect chance for him to throw his hat into the ring for the LB spot yet he's injured again
He must be gutted that joker Danny Rose got called up
dude is useless.
