    Only saw the end of the game but Higginbottom was lavishing praise on his performance in the game as a whole.

    I think he definitely needs to go to the u21 Euros as another midfield option.

    He played for their U20s before England ever capped him.

    Tomori's been excellent since he switched. I don't think he's particularly any more error prone than any other 21 year old central defender. Particularly given this is his first season in professional football playing there (his previous loans he's largely played right back). I've always been impressed with his raw defensive ability.

    I think he's by far and away the biggest contender to make the England squad out the current crop of centre backs. I'd expect he'll do it next season if he gets a decent loan.

    I think a Tuanzebe and Tomori partnership could be very solid.

    The one area that worries me going into the Euros is defensive midfield. Skipp is unlikely to be called up, so it looks like being between Choudhury and Dowell.

    Just to level with you... I haven't seen Reece James play enough to comment. Is he playing as a DM now?

    I just can’t see Boothroyd calling up anyone new into the fold for the Euro’s that hasn’t already been part of this set up for the last year unfortunately unless hit with injuries, then forced into it. I know CHO got called up last time but he was probably forced into it due to getting more appearances for Chelsea and I bet that was seen as an exception.

    Reece James I would call up myself, not only due to merit but because he can play in two positions which is good for tournament football.

    If I was a betting man then players like James, Tuanzebe, Roberts, Bowen etc won’t get a look in unless injuries occur.

    You’re probably right on Tuanzebe, James etc.

    Surely, he’ll find a way of fitting in CHO and recalling Mount though (presuming they’re fully available.)

    I'd think if anyone not in the last squad makes it, it'll be Maitland-Niles who can count himself very unlucky considering he's playing regularly for Arsenal, which is a higher standard than anyone else in the squad.

    Apparently Dael Fry has torn his hamstring so very unlikely he will be fit for the Euro’s. Shame for the lad, hope for a speedy recovery.

    Josh Onomah has made a surprise early return from injury and started today for Sheffield Wednesday. Good chance he'll end up making the final squad now you suspect.
