England manager Gareth Southgate has his eyes set on the 22-year-old goalkeeper Dean Henderson, with its impressive display of performance lately for Sheffield United by keeping them untouchable with nine clean sheets, while pressure arise for Everton’s own Jordan Pickford being first-choice as the keeper for England by getting criticized with its notable mistakes and lately after Bruno Fernandes’ long shot at scored through his post for Man United getting them the equalizer at the 31-minute mark.
If the two keepers maintain their level of play, without a doubt Henderson would be chosen to start for England, however, with three months ahead of Euro 2020, Southgate seems unlikely to apply changes in a short amount of time.
It sends high notice however that Southgate went to Goodison Park rather than being at the Wembley Stadium for the Carabao Cup finals and checked on Pickford.
England still has their friendlies euro fixtures against Italy and Denmark scheduled for this month making it perfect to give Henderson a chance as it would be unthinkable to play him in a tournament as an uncapped player.
Southgate has also received positive news about Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford in which both are expected to play before the end of the season.
The utmost concern for Southgate is how fit would be both strikers in the pitch within the whole EURO 2020 tournament and receiving regular bulletins.
