    English players starting Premier League games reaches record low

    The number of English players starting Premier League games has reached record lows over the past two weekends.

    Only 53 players - less than a quarter of all starters beginning games for top-flight clubs in Premier League game week 14 - were eligible to represent England, down from 55 last weekend.

    Bournemouth were the Premier League club to name the most English players in their starting side, with seven.

    But Chelsea and Newcastle did not name a single English player in their XIs.

    Data from analysts Gracenote shows the previous record low was 58 in four different match rounds during the 2015-16 season.

    England boss Gareth Southgate says it is "a big concern".

    "There's a lot of investment in academies and young players and there needs to be opportunity and jobs for them," said Southgate, who added that last year the average number of English starters was 33%.

    "It's a concern for the clubs as well, everyone is very mindful of the young age group," he said.

    "What's clear for everybody is we don't want to see that number diminish further, we just need to work on how we get experience that gives first-team managers the confidence to pick them.

    "Managers don't usually have long-term security and so it makes it more difficult to pick home-grown players."

    Arsenal, Manchester City and Wolves all named just one English starter in their sides at the weekend.

    Of the 53 English players who did start in the Premier League almost half, 26, have already been capped by England.

    Gracenote adds that five of the 27 uncapped players could choose to play for another national team - they were Mark Noble and Sean Morrison who qualify for Ireland, Tyrone Mings for Barbados, Andrew Surman for South Africa and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for DR Congo.

    talk about diminishing pool of player. I hope 1BL never becomes like EPL where 3/4 of the league is foreign.

    this shows how crappy Germany was in 2018 WC playing well below their capabilities.

    South Korea in Asian Cup
    GS 1 1-0 win vs Philippines
    GS 2 1-0 win vs Kyrgyzstan
    GS 3 2-0 win vs China

    R16 2-1 win ET over Bahrain
    QF 1-0 loss to Qatar

    this team can barely beat anyone.....

    Damn it, Qatar won the Asian Cup, meaning another Spaniard has his hands on an international trophy. Bummer.

    don't think anyone expected Qatar to win and they are also participating in Copa America this year. That's good for them as the host of the next WC.

    You're right about that.

    I must say it's pretty weird to have Asian countries participate in the South American tournament. Concacaf countries I can roll with that due to the geographic proximity, but Asian countries are a real head scratcher.

    believe that this Copa America interfered with the Gold Cup so no Concacaf teams went. As for Qatar they are there likely there because they paid, as WC hosts you have less competitive games to play between now and WC. Japan was also invited.

    plenty of reports about a 2020 Copa America and from there all Copa will be every 4 years, so no longer any issues between Copa and Gold Cup and it aligns with Euros.

    That is true. Moving past Lewandowski, I'd say that Milik and Piatek are ahead of any German produced striker in quite some time now

    Polish fans had Kownacki as a potentially better talent than Milik and Piatek

    Embolo looks to be Switzerland's next striker after Seferovic. Injuries have affected his development though.

    The Swiss have some quality young players rising. Elvedi and Mbabu in defence, Zakaria, Edimilson Fernandes and Djibril Sow in midfield, Embolo, Albian Ajeti and Noah Okafor in attack.
