friendly against Brazil at Wemb
Gareth Southgate believes the increased competition for places generated within the England squad, born of his determination to promote youth, will ensure players think twice about withdrawing from squads.
The national manager will recall Joe Hart, Kyle Walker and Gary Cahill to his starting lineup for the friendly against Brazil on Tuesday night, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek is expected to retain a place in midfield after his hugely encouraging debut against Germany. Lewis Cook and Dominic Solanke, key performers in the under-20s�� World Cup success over the summer but inexperienced at Premier League level, will hope for involvement from the bench, while Marcus Rashford, now 20, should start and Joe Gomez will gain a second cap Dezmen Southward Jersey
at some stage after his substitute appearance last Friday.Loftus-Cheek, a player who has made only 12 top-flight starts and is on loan at Crystal Palace, would have been picked for the last two World Cup qualifiers in October had he been fit but the youngsters called up to the current squad are effectively making the most of the withdrawal of eight seniors with various knocks and niggles. The FA��s medical staff were satisfied by the validity of those injuries, for all that the players would expect to feature for their clubs this weekend. Chelsea��s Danny Drinkwater turned down the chance to join up after suffering a relapse of a calf problem.
Southgate has already handed out 13 debuts in as many matches in charge. Asked if the praise heaped on new faces such as Loftus-Cheek and Jordan Pickford since Friday��s draw with the World Cup holders might mean players consider the wider picture before dropping out, he said: ��Yes, that��s what you want to get to as a team, that the competition for places is so intense. [Philippe] Coutinho hasn��t played for a few weeks for Liverpool but he is there for Brazil. I imagine part of that is because he is thinking: ��If I��m not there and I��m not playing and someone else goes in, do I get the shirt back?�� Maybe we haven��t had that but I think, moving forward, we will have, and I think that will affect people��s approach definitely.
��Someone said to me, ��[the emergence of young talent] is causing you selection headaches��. No, because you want competition for places. The best way to get the maximum out of a player is competition for your place and no opportunity to take [your foot] off the gas in training or in any of the matches. And then you have to perform. You support people in difficult moments but, equally, when you have got that competition it drives the level of training. The energy in training has been high.��England have beaten Brazil only once since 1990, with http://www.patriotsnflofficialsauthentic.com/Stephen-Gostkowski-Jersey.html
Southgate describing the team ranked No2 in the world as ��a juggernaut��. While the hope is the home side build on the promise displayed against Germany, there is a realism among the management staff �C and within the FA �C that short-term results may be risked in favour of long?term development. ��The more you beat those top teams then, of course, you take that confidence with you, but I have to balance our desire to win games with some experimentation that does mean you do risk results,�� Southgate said. ��We could set up to play a certain way to give ourselves a better chance of winning any individual game, with more experienced players.
��We could take the short-term view regarding who might be more experienced going into a tournament and have more big-match experience, or we think outside the box and have a look at a few players we want to find out more about and see how they cope. There��s something bigger I��m working for than just getting results in the short-term and my own personal ambitions. If you��re a coach your mindset has to be to help people improve and maximise what��s possible. It is the right decision for England.
��When it comes to the World Cup, I will go with what I think is the best squad. At the moment, I believe the best would include a lot those young players. It��s easy to be swayed at times by needing experience, but you can have 100 experiences of the same thing or Dezmen Southward Womens Jersey
10 different experiences that make you a more rounded person. These young players have also had experience of winning youth tournaments, playing high-level matches, and challenges to get to where they are in their path. So they��ve had to show some resilience of their own.
��We��d love to have a team full of players who have won the Champions League but we haven��t got that. But I want players who will be fearless, prepared to have the ball and show what they are capable of on the biggest stage.��England��s football team might be put through a mock penalty shootout in front of a Wembley crowd as Gareth Southgate sets about trying to make sure his team will be fully prepared from 12 yards in the World Cup.
Southgate resisted the temptation to arrange a practice shootout against Germany, the team famous for their penalty prowess, after the goalless draw at Wembley on Friday but England��s manager is considering putting one in place for one of the Wembley friendlies closer to the tournament.
England have gone out of six major tournaments �C three World Cups and three European Championships �C since Chris Waddle skied his penalty in Italia 90 and have only one success to their name against Spain in Euro 96. Taking into account the King Hassan II International Cup in Morocco, pre-France 98, when Rob Lee and Les Ferdinand were the guilty men, England��s overall record stands at seven failures out of eight.

considered putting on a dress rehearsal when England played Jamaica at Old Trafford before the World Cup in 2006. The Swede never went through with it, however, and three of England��s penalty-takers, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, went on to miss in the quarter-final shootout against Portugal.
As anyone who can remember the pizza advert will be able to testify, Southgate also has first-hand experience from Euro 96 about what it is like to take, and miss, a decisive penalty in a major competition and the England manager is determined the modern team will be ready in next summer��s World Cup.
��It��s something that we are considering �C how we prepare best for penalty shootouts,�� Southgate said. ��Whether that��s something on the training ground, http://www.authenticislanderstore.com/gordie-howe-jersey_c-450.html
whether Dezmen Southward Jersey
that��s in sessions we do away from the http://www.officialathleticshop.com/authentic-25-mark-mcgwire-jersey.html
training ground, or something we do in some sort of match scenario. We��ve not finalised that yet but clearly that [match situation] is an option.��
England have another friendly lined up against Italy at Wembley on 27 March, with a game against Holland in Amsterdam four days earlier, and will then arrange two more fixtures before the squad fly to their World Cup base in Repino, outside St Petersburg.In the meantime Southgate is warning Joe Hart, the goalkeeper he insists is still his recognised No1, that he is facing increased competition after Jordan Pickford��s impressive debut against Germany.
Hart will return to the team for Tuesday��s friendly against Brazil at Wembley but Southgate confirmed the West Ham United goalkeeper would have missed out again if Jack Butland had not broken a finger.
��Jordan had an excellent game. It was a good experience for him, we can wrap him up now, assess him in the next period with his club and it��s good that he goes away with a really positive experience. Now��s an opportunity for Joe to have experience against top opposition as well and we��re all aware there��s really good competition in that area of the pitch.
��We have six months where all our goalkeeping department can show what they can do. What Jordan has shown is that he��s been able to make his debut at Wembley, play with composure and show his qualities. He��s still a young goalkeeper, still learning, and there are things for him to improve but it was a really positive debut.�� http://sharelt.com/blogs/post/65885 http://www.thailivestock.com/forum/authentic-brandon-graham-youth-jersey http://sugr.fm/bbs/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=6711&extra= http://www.mktrial.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=48946 http://www.google-search-engine.com/optimize/blogs/post/93022 http://inergyflo.com/forum/topic/65595 http://motus.to/forum/?action=showthread&id=5023#p1
