Gareth Southgate Protecting Wilson As He Sits Out Today’s Session



England boss Gareth Southgate is determined to protect Newcastle striker Callum Wilson. According to The Athletic, the 30-year-old is on a different program from the rest of the squad.

Eddie Howe implemented something similar for his star striker after his latest injury in September. Southgate will take precautions to help ensure Wilson remains fit during this World Cup.

Wilson is one of many England players that didn’t participate in today’s session. Southgate also rested his starting eleven while Leicester City’s James Maddison has yet to train with the squad after suffering a minor knee injury before the break.

Wilson came on for Harry Kane in yesterday’s 6-2 win over Iran. Kane was limping after the match but is reportedly fine today. Callum provided the assist on Jack Grealish’s goal in the 90th minute. Kieran Trippier played the entire match which had 24 minutes of added time.

Next up for England is the United States, who drew 1-1 against Wales in their opener yesterday. The Americans dominated the first half before Wales manager Rob Page tweaked his tactics bringing striker Bournemouth striker Kieffer Moore on for Leeds’ Daniel James after the break.

The tactical change resulted in a much better half for Wales, who equalized on a converted penalty from Gareth Bale. United States boss Gregg Berhalter opted against bringing young Dortmund star Gio Reyna on despite the 20-year-old declaring he is 100% fit and ready to go.

    Experimental team, so hard to predict anything… could be great, could suck… We will have the answer in four hours.

    It seem Deschamps is impressed by Konaté… still, when Varane will be back ( if he come back, we aren’t sure of anything anymore… ), would prefer him and L. Hernandez in central defense, with T.Hernandez on the left.

    Most Irish I know (who are not nufc fans) love Newcastle as a place, and geordies. My brother was there and also Liverpool. Liked both cities.

    But despite the passage of time after the Troubles and the historical oppression before we managed to kick you pretty much out, the sporting enmity is still there.its not vicious though, despite what some like to portray.

    That said, everybody I know would smile if England lose, from kids to old fellas. That’s not hate though.

    But some numpties on here , especially guys like Tufty and Fenham, confuse that with general anti englishness, which isn’t really a “thing” over here. It’s a construct by a few of you.

    So I have new neighbours coming soon. If they are English, they will be as welcomed as if they were Irish, as you would expect. The same way as any of you guys wud welcome some Irish neighbour. Unless he supports SAFC.

    Don’t send any noisy leinster rugby fans from south dublin to live beside me though, unless they have other redeeming qualities! 🙂

    For our Midfield, we can do much to improve it unfortunatly… perhaps to play with Camavinga instead of Rabiot.

    Also, we will probably see Coman at some point.

    @Mort

    Well, when Kimpembé injury was anounced, Deschamps hesitated between him and Disasi as a replacement.

    He opted for Disasi, cause in France, for Badiashile got the reputation to be a little soft and to don’t like contact.

    Just catching up..

    Good games today, great watching KSA win. One of the great shocks in WC history. Was inevitable I suppose though since I captained Messi in FWC.

    I bet Qatar hate that KSA are the stars of the show so far, while they look utterly useless. Funny how things work out sometimes eh?

    TFB are you actually in Saudi mate? Should be a right party atmosphere if so.

    Looking forward to the France vs Aussie game, hope we get to see Kuol in action and that he does something special.

    Oh and Mort you really are a pointless individual. I am not wasting further time replying to your total nonsense you clueless wum.

    Charlie, it wud be very very interesting to see the media reaction if Liverpool were Qatari or Saudi owned. A few coughs softened, I wud think.

    Sorry Catchy, but I’m with Novo, the BBC 78 WC theme was the best.

    Why on earth anyone can hate another county they haven’t been to is simply absurd and just means they have zero intelligence and have very serious issues and problems in their life.

    Mort implying I’m a racist after 15 years of using this blog and everyone knowing I’m anything but, well what can I say, it’s not worth giving it the satisfaction it craves by getting annoyed by it. Like The Last Jedi, he’ll eventually grab enough rope……..

    Not sure why they didn’t just do that in the summer, that stubbornness cost them around £10M and gained him the same. Baffling decision.

    Just watched Poland Mexico, that was probably the worst game I’ve seen so far.

    What a tacky little individial standing in Qatar sporting bile.

    Prior to Saudi Arabia’s World Cup opener against Argentina, former Newcastle boss Graeme Souness claimed that the Middle Eastern country should be ‘nowhere near’ Newcastle United.

    Watching footie on a pc / laptop, don’t go for the full screen version.

    Pinch and expand the small screen version until it’s almost full screen, but you still see your tabs across the top and can flip back and forth to the blog or other sites.

    Not true Scotland don’t hate English people we actually just hate the Tories!! The media like to twist the narrative though

    And more recently Labour who are Tories in disguise up here (they even coalition in councils up here) which is why they are pretty much wiped out in elections recently

    But aye we love the Geordies and Manchunians up the road

    Taco,

    Aye mate, the bills don’t pay themselves!
    Be in Bahrain Thursday night for a long weekend slurping the Carling though so something to look forward to. Plenty yank expats over there so there’ll be some banter on Friday night, just hope we carry on from how we left the Iran game.

    Novo and Wor B..

    that 1978 tune is a tune, and I can hear where the mekeeco tune came from, it has a very similar ring to it..

    Italia 90, another top tune, the big man belting those deep baritone sounds, but its just not a football tune for me, its not fun, its serious, i can imaging Pele, the hand of god or even our dear old genius Peter the great skipping past players with either mekeeco86 or Argentina78 playing along. Gazza, Bagio or van basten skipping to pavaroti, naaa.

    a good tune is whats missing from big tournaments. remember this top tune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYDS3O1KIUc this time we’ll fly the flag

    I also think it’s been a very good world cup so far mate, I’ve been watching world cups from 1966 when England won it, and the first group stages in a lot of those world cups have been very boring but so far I think it’s been superb Taco mate
