Former England striker Darren Bent in a conversation at talkSPORT accompanied by host Adrian Durham told that the 19-year old Brandon Williams from Manchester United have his chances of being a part of Gareth Southgate’s men to play at the Euro 2020.
Adrian Durham said, “Apart from the miss, he was sensationally good, Williams at left-back, and he is everything Luke Shaw should be.”
Darren Bent replied, “He’s got to be within a shout. If he keeps Luke Shaw out of the team and plays from now until the end of the season, every week, and plays at the level he played at the weekend then he can’t be far away.”
“Brandon Williams, if he continues to play as well as he did at the weekend and continues that until the end of the season then he has to be in the discussion.” Bent added.
The left-back star debuted with Manchester United back in September 2019 and has made 14 appearances so far, with 1 scored goal through Sheffield United’s net.
Williams delivers for the Red Devils what they need to fill in especially without Luke Shaw due to his injury, making him start at the XI and getting recognition from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with his display of performance against Norwich City wherein they managed to grab a 4-0 victory. Shaw was placed to sit on the bench after suffering a hamstring injury during its warm-up before the game.
“We want to get to a place where players understand that if they play well they will keep their place and if they don’t there’s competition behind us,” Solskjaer said. “And we’ve got good competition there now.
“Brandon’s never ever let us down and another excellent performance by him. Definitely a lesson for everyone who wants to be a professional footballer; the attitude he’s showing. And it’ll be up to him, me and the club to keep him that hunger. But I don’t expect him to change, he’s got the heart for it and when you have it you have it.” he added.
