Bungling England promote Germany clash using two players AXED from squad leaving fans confused | The Sun

ENGLAND have endured yet another embarrassing performance, but this time it's not even on a football pitch.

Ahead of tonight's final Nations League game, England's social media team released a seemingly regular post asking fans who made their starting XI to face Germany.



The picture which accompanied the post showed a graphic with three players: Phil Foden, Fikayo Tomori and James Ward-Prowse.

However, Tomori and Ward-Prowse are not even available for selection after being among five players omitted from Gareth Southgate's squad.

This means the promotion campaign for tonight's game has two players who are not even being considered for selection.

And England fans were quick to catch on to the blunder.

One fan said: "Two players in the pic aren’t even in the match day squad."

Others were far more scathing in their assessment, with another commenting: "Showing Tomori and Ward-Prowse when they aren’t even in the squad have some shame."

A disgruntled user said: "Tomori and JWP are dropped from the squad and admin is so mad he puts both in the pic."

Along with Tomori and Ward-Prowse, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jarrod Bowen and Jack Grealish (suspension) are all unavailable but Ivan Toney has been included ahead of his potential debut.

And another fan took a dig at these omissions as he revealed who he would want to see starting.

They quipped: "Trent at right back, Tomori CB, Ward-Prowse in the middle and probably Bowen on the right."

England have been less than stellar in their build-up to the World Cup finals in November, having now lost three games in a row and having the ignominy of being relegated to the second tier of the Nations League following the 1-0 defeat to Italy on Friday.

In fact, England are now on their worst run of form in eight years, having failed to win any of their last five games while simultaneously failing to score from open play from any of these.

This damning form is further compounded by the revelation that San Marino are the only other country to have not scored from open play in the 2022/23 Nations League.

Southgate needs to find a winning formula again quickly, but he has been slammed for his continued omission of "England's most creative midfielder James Maddison."

Many fans believe the former Middlesbrough manager's time at the helm of the Three Lions is up, with a staggering 83 per cent wanting him ousted BEFORE the Qatar World Cup.
