Southgate: 'This is a lineup that can be excited!'
The England manager Gareth Southgate is of the opinion that the squad he is selecting for the forthcoming World Cup in Russia is well balanced and has a tremendous amount of energy. Today the specialist announced a group of 23 players and five reserves, implying that his team is quite young and inexperienced. `I believe that this is a team we can excite about, the group is young, but it includes some very important experienced players, I feel that the balance is good, the team has a lot of energy and athletics, but the players feel so comfortable in controlling the ball and I think people can see the style we are trying to develop The selection process has been running for months and not only in recent weeks The first call to Trent Alexander-Arnold is totally deserved, when we bet on a young gameand it`s not because of their age and because they have earned it with his performance!', said Southgate.
