Gareth Southgate has again left Raheem Sterling out of his England squad despite the Chelsea winger’s club form, with Jordan Henderson and James Maddison both included.

Sterling has started 10 of Chelsea’s 11 league matches this season, scoring three times, but has still not been picked by Southgate for his squad since the 2022 World Cup last November – and will now consider himself in severe danger of missing out on the European Championships next summer.

England’s November squad
Goalkeepers: Sam Johnstone (Crystal Palace), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal).

Defenders: Levi Colwill (Chelsea), Lewis Dunk (Brighton), Marc Guehi (Crystal Palace), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Fikayi Tomori (AC Milan), Kieran Trippier (Newcastle), Kyle Walker (Manchester City).

Midfielders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid), Conor Gallagher (Chelsea), Jordan Henderson (Al-Ettifaq), Kalvin Phillips (Manchester City), Declan Rice (Arsenal).

Forwards: Jarrod Bowen (West Ham), Phil Foden (Manchester City), Jack Grealish (Manchester City), Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), James Maddison (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa), Callum Wilson (Newcastle).

  1. Southgate out right now ffs 😂 the man is the worst football mind iv ever seen, its ridiculous how much talent is at this mans feet and he cant do anything but rigid, slow, boring football

  2. Why do people care about international breaks playing pointless games during a domestic season? Just makes players more likely to get injured and ruin their fitness levels. Have August-May domestic campaigns and then you have the whole of June for International friendlies, qualifiers and tournaments etc. That leaves with 6 weeks off for rest and small pre-season tours.

  3. Can anyone IMAGINE what England could do with current talent available…well..keep imagining because this unqualified eejet wont utilise them instead your best chance of making his squad is be out of your club team .Maguire Ramsdale Philips or play Saudi conferance league ..how did he ever get the job

  4. Its funny People are questioning about sterling being left out and we've got Ben white who has been consistent since last season and yet he's been left out.

  5. Ha ha ha seriously its the same as always why even announce it we all know who is in the squad. Southgate is a joke he's turned playing for England into a closed club

  6. Why show surprise the TAA is in the midfield positions … HE WAS ALSO in those positions in the last squad ??? THE ISSUE IS is that if this managers play Phillips INSTEAD of him then he HAS LOST THE PLOT …. MIDFIELD SOULD BE JB DR and TAA ….. WIN THE BLOODY GAMES ….

  7. English fans and being delusional…Spent the summer beforee last Euros asking for Grealish to get game time, dude went to City and the whole country wanted him out of the squad…Samer fans who wanted Sterling out of the English set up are same fans demanding for him to be called up….Who next?

  8. But he could call Arom Ramsdale and advise him to get game time but can you make Maguire case make sense whom hasn't played consistently for months until now and yet you pick him Gareth ?

  9. So he was willing to include Reece James but not Ben white. Says Ramsdale has to play more otherwise he won’t get called up in future squads, even though he has been in the squad a long time, which is the same excuse he used for Phillips and Maguire when they weren’t play as much.

  10. I bet Secretly Sterling is glad he's not involved in the international corrupt circus of football, that and the fact international footy is utter 💩💩


  12. Raheem has not just been a great contributor to what England have achieved as Southgate points out, as if that is not enough, he has been a great contributor to what the most successful English club team of the last 5 years has achieved, something no other English attacking player can claim, not even close. I'm sorry, but the Italy team England beat would not have got past the quarter finals of the Italy team that beat England in the Euro final, they may not even make it to the next competition if it comes down to the last game against Croatia, so to think anything special has been achieved by the team he selected beating them twice is worryingly mistaken of the manager. But what is also worrying is that the manager does not realise that his objective should be to pick the best England team, not the team that won the last game or even beat a good team. Even if he beats the number one team he should be taking every opportunity to still improve and make the team even better. The fact he cannot see Raheem Sterling who has proved and achieved so much he is recognised as one of the best wingers in the world would make the team better is both a shocking idea and decision. It's very simple. People thought Chelsea were in trouble with a run of games against top sides ahead of them, but it has not turned out that way because of one man. Demolition man, Raheem Sterling creating panic in the opposition defense producing goals, goal assists and opposition players being sent off and penalties being won as they tried to deal with him. His name was the only name mentioned again and again by Pep after the game and when he said the former Man City players were a very important part of Man City success, there is only one man he could have been talking about, Raheem Sterling. His name was the only name, Klopp, the Liverpool manager mentioned again and again after playing Chelsea. Two great managers seeing his significant contributions and recognising him as the danger man and stand out in the Chelsea team, but pundits and the media would see hell freeze over before they would admit this or even see, such is their hatred of the player. You can bet your bottom dollar a player doing what he is doing at Chelsea would be hailed as Rooney and Gascoigne were, but not a black player, much as John Barnes was ignored and pushed out to play on the wing for England. I made an error in saying Sterling had a significant involvement in 10 out of Chelsea's last 16 goals, but that was an error. He has been involved in 11 out of Chelsea's last 16 goals, and I apologise to him for making that error. What an incredible statistic. When you add that to the statistic that he is both the highest assist provider for England and the second highest scorer, and that he almost single handedly dragged England to their first final in over 50 years, one has to ask the question. How is he not in the England team, let alone the England squad and how is a 21 year old who has scored nothing, but penalties, been hailed above him as the player responsible for Chelsea's successful performances by gthe media despite all the stats. It can only be racism. You are talking about the most successful and best paid English attacking player and one of the best wingers in the world who has proved himself again and again since the age of 17 criticised the whole way as not good enough throughout what are amazing achievements for a 28 year old. CHELSEA V ARSENAL – Against Arsenal it was his cross that won the penalty and his solo run into the box that dragged the goalie of the line with the ball accidentally going over his head. He could have taken the penalty, but allowed Palmer to take it to avoid an argument and a destruction of the teams concentration. Palmer had no right to demand to take it as the manager has not said he is the penalty taker and believes others are capable of taking penalties as well and should be allowed to if they want to. Palmer's insistence he take the penalties is therefore an act of petulance not leadership with other team players not prepared to have an argument on the pitch with a selfish 21 year old who is trying to mature into understanding what a team player is, which is fine because he is young and needs time. CHELSEA V TOTTENHAM – Against Tottenham, Sterling scored the disallowed goal against the run of play that made Tottenham check their confidence and it was Sterling that was being tackled as he did what he does best which is to create panic in the opposition box, attempting a dribble in the box that led to the foul that had the first player sent off as in tackling Sterling the Tottenham player lost control of the ball and was trying to get it back in control, resulting in him fouling a Chelsea player coming for the ball and being sent off reducing Tottenham to 10 men. Sterling was then fouled resulting in a red card and Tottenham being reduced to 9 men, and before it being Sterling that broke through the defense and leading by example to show how to get a goal setting up Jackson for a goal to put Chelsea ahead of Tottenham after his team mates had been struggling to get because of selfishness despite all their opportunities. CHELSEA V MAN CITY – Here you had Sterling in, not just a clear man of the match performance from which he was robbed, but a masterclass in a world class performance going toe to toe with the players of the best team in the world, toying with them and looking better than them. He scored the second goal to put Chelsea ahead for the first time and then in a stroke of genius with time running out delivered the ball like a grenade into the box that created panic in the box and resulted in a penalty that would draw Chelsea level. I would like to see the list of what it is those who claim Palmer has been the main man supports their argument. The list will be penalty, penalty, penalty, but even behind that the list would be penalty won by Sterling, penalty won by Sterling, etc as he involved in so much of the threat Chelsea provides on the pitch. We need to show our demolition man who has proved himself and has the medals and stats to back it up more respect. Forget what agenda the media have with all the negativity and disrespect they throw at him and the brainwashing people into believing it. Long may his relentless work and genius continue. Believe me, if England are to win anything, they will need his penalties being won, players being sent off trying to stop him, the chaos he causes in opposition defenses and his high stats in goals and assists as a must. No other England player can provide this much variety as a threat, not even close, and this why great managers value him and it is why Pep said he contributed to the great success of the Man City side. Not only this England Team's highest assist provider, but also this England team's second highest goal scorer. Peace and love

  13. So hang on😂. So many injury concerns and yet the one winger that is actually on some sort of form and is not injured doesn’t get picked. If i was sterling id retire from international football until this bozo leaves
