Ross Barkley, however, has again been overlooked, that despite an improved performance in front of the nation's temporary manager at Goodison Park on Friday night against Crystal Palace.
With respect to Barkley, Southgate followed in the footsteps of his predecessor Sam Allardyce who also failed to select him during the previous international break.
Jagielka, meanwhile, had lost his place under Roy Hodgson and was not picked for Euro2016 but was restored to the squad by Allardyce last month, prior to the former Sunderland manager's dismissal following the revelations of improper conduct made by The Telegraph newspaper.
Meanwhile, the Toffees are well represented at youth level with six players in all having been called up last week. Morgan Feeney has been selected for the U18s while Tom Davies has been called back up to the U19s.
At U20 level, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Callum Connolly, Jonjoe Kenny and Kieran Dowell are in the England U20s squad for the games against Holland, Germany and the United States.

And no Barkley. The lad does not seem to be able to raise his game enough to get that England recall. He needs to be careful. IMO his Everton place could also be in trouble. Is he now contributing enough? Are there better options at the club? Will he ever fulfil his potential? Was he ever the player we all seem to think he is, or are we all just hoping that he can be that player that takes Everton to the next level? Are we all expecting too much from him? And he simply cannot deliver. Anyhow, good to see Jags get a recall. We now have one player in the squad. Did we not, only a few years back, have five players in an England squad?

The major problem can't be the game itself as the EPL is a fantastic competition. In truth, it has to be the people at the top, similar to what used to be the case with the rugby union. The top brass (sorry, but no respect meant by the use of "top") is so totally old school full of dick brains that are up their own you-know-whats, that whoever is selected as manager has no chance to put the right squad of players together.
The major problem with this is that nobody has the balls to say, "Enough is enough", let's get rid of the dick brains at the top and appoint a manager who can put the right blend of players together to form a great national team without interference from... the top, the press and whatever else. I might be Australian now but I was born in England and so I feel sorry for the crap that you guys have to put up with.
There. I got that off my chest! Good luck. England has the talent to do so much better!

Money! Nice to have enough, I suppose but... ???

I feel the complete opposite about rugby union. Bloody love the England internationals. Players playing with pride and passion.

The problem for the England managers has been keeping certain players and their clubs happy. It is no coincidence that as soon as Lindberg has a couple of games, he is straight into the squad. If you play for Watford or Leicester, you won't be looked at the same way as if you turned out for Liverpool or Man Utd.
It seems that our representatives for England seem to get more media stick than players from other sides. Baines, Jagielka, Stones and Barkley have all suffered. Players like our own James McCarthy is so keen to go on international duty that he goes when he hasn't fully healed from his injury. Rooney has always been keen to play for England. Gigs wasn't quite so keen to turn up for Wales (Old Whisky Nose might have had something to do with it). It isn't fair to generalise on these matters.
As for the rugby, they haven't all been ready to die for the cause there have been many lazy performances from our less well-off egg-chasers too.

I do feel, however, there are too many international breaks and the qualifying against no-mark teams such as Malta is nonsense. They should have to pre-qualify to play the top international nations in maybe a one- or two-round knockout event, played the season of the finals.
That way, we would have less congestion and every other season we would have less breaks, maybe just a couple of friendlies... mainly pre season.

Bring on Man City.

It's just the whole England thing is lacking any kudos these days imo. Where are the dynamic characters the likes of Gazza, Beckham, Stuart Pearce, Butcher, etc etc? Players you would actually like to watch rather than the bore-fest we endure these days.

Fifa/Uefa really should sort this out, it's not do inganyone any good (other than the FA selling tickets).
14 Posted 03/10/2016 at 19:50:17
There's no point in international breaks, all they do is lay players open to injury and leave the fans cold as we wait for the next Premier League fixture to come around.

Robson was so blinkered. like the media to our wonderful players, it took injuries and suspension to get him to pick Reidy.

I haven't watched them for years... waste of time.

Yes / No answers will suffice.

A great big two fingers would be my answer. Is he really going to get picked if we reach the World Cup Finals? I very much doubt it.
So what is the point? Just there to help them qualify then move aside for the Golden Boys from Manchester, Liverpool and Spurs.
