Report Suggests Magpie Will Get Another Cap For England Today

It appears from reports this morning that Gareth Southgate will name an unchanged eleven for England’s Group B clash against The United States this evening. The Chronicle is one of the outlets reporting of a ‘leaked’ teamsheet that shows no changes from the 6-2 win over Iran.

There was some consternation this week over the fitness of striker Harry Kane. The 28-year-old took a heavy challenge against Iran and was subbed off for Callum Wilson. Kane underwent a scan on his ankle a few days ago which came back clear.

Southgate hinted yesterday that Kane would start against the States saying:

“Harry Kane is good. He came through tests with no problems. It would be a brave decision to leave him out of the starting team.

“All teams have the same recovery period. It is a little shorter than in previous tournaments. Only will only benefit us if we get through the group stages, where we might have a longer period to recover as you get through the competition.”

If Southgate keeps with the eleven that soundly downed Iran, it’ll be another cap for Kieran Trippier. The right-back carried his excellent Newcastle form to Qatar as he was superb in Monday’s win.

England are the heavy favorites to advance from their group. Wales and the USA battled to a 1-1 draw on Monday. The Welsh face Iran in today’s early match as manager Rob Page makes one change with Kieffer Moore in for Daniel James.

The World Cup got underway for two other Magpies on Thursday. Fabian Schar was an unused substitute in Switzerland’s 1-0 win over Cameroon. Bruno Guimaraes also didn’t get on the pitch as Brazil beat Serbia 2-0 on two Richarlison strikes. Both countries are well-placed in Group G for Monday’s showdown.

    I swore an Oath of Allegiance and it is for life.

    You must do this to join up to our Military…Joining up whilst doing this but not meaning it is so wrong on so many levels and it is an offence not too…

    When starting the recruiting process, the candidate will be issued with an enlistment notice and paper and asked to provide written answers to the questions in the enlistment paper, having been warned by the recruiting officer that it is an offence to provide false answers. Part of those questions will you swear an Oath of Allegiance to The Queen/King…

    Swearing the oath of allegiance is viewed as a mark of the individual’s loyalty to the Crown and therefore, their willingness faithfully to serve as a member of the armed forces. That’s all I will say yon that matter!

    You do have to give people credit for “joining up”.
    But there are lots of “Tom Peppers” about who make on they were ruthless fighting Marines – when the reality is they played the triangle in the Marines – a bandsman.

    Lot of Tom Peppers on here.

    Have to rush – got the bunting to hang out and the Union Jack to raise on the flag pole.

    Before I dash – as it is getting near New Year it would be good if Lesh could make a resolution that in 2023 he is actually going to make one post about football.

    He’ll now be panicking as he will struggle to say anything.

    Come on England.

    You and DrGloom are both entitled to have your opinions and your voices heard, which ironically is one of the reasons why you both served.
    Think this one needs putting to bed as it doesn’t go anywhere.

    I think most refs use the VAR as a crutch nowadays, bottling it or not doesn’t concern me, as long as VAR man gets it right I suppose.

    I’d imagine there’s a lot of people signed those forms and didn’t have a strong view of the monarchy in all honesty. It will be a job/career to some.

    I bet there have been a fair few Northern Ireland lads who were sympathetic towards a united Ireland who served as an example.

    I appreciate your standpoint on it, and can respect that you took it as seriously as you did but not everyone is the same.

    Mister Tuff,

    The topic of discussion is duty to the crown, not the country.

    On that subject, did anyone notice the lads accidentally singing god save the Queen instead of King during the national anthem earlier in the week? I wondered if it might happen given the short amount of time since the Queen passed away, and how ingrained the lyrics are in people’s minds.

    Good afternoon fella
    Just some friendly advice, from a security perspective for you as an individual and your family, it`s really dangerous and not so clever to broadcast on social media what regiment you served in the British security forces, with the modern technology there is in this day and age it`s really not that difficult to track down where individuals or their family live mate. Give this post some thought Fenham as it`s just some meaningful and sincere advice.

    Christ alive. Newcastle are currently flying, there’s a World Cup on and yet you lot still take the time out of your days to bicker on an online blog.


    There’s far better uses of your time and far more important things in life (trust me), than trying to 1 up some stranger in the internet. Peeking in now and again the last week or so has been embarrassing. You’re all as bad as each other and it’s hilarious that you try to point fingers at each other. It’s all of you.

    Take a deep breath and ask yourself ‘what the fcuk am I doing?’.

    Stop peeking and start posting again 🙂

    FWIW I’m actually trying to quell the shite today, certainly hope I haven’t offended anyone with my involvement in the Queen or Country argument.

    Even accepted my own existence as a short c*** rather than fight my own corner yesterday (mainly because it’s true).

    Like you, I’m not as active as I was as it just isn’t worth dedicating so much time to the blog anymore. I read most days, but only comment when I can be bothered.

    Would it not have been intentional at the funeral, as one last dedication to the Queen and her memory? I don’t recall it happening there, mind you. But some of the players definitely sang Queen instead of King the other day.

    Retired a millionaire I presume, as he never seems to show up anywhere anymore.

    Although just read he’s set to appear in a new Indiana Jones film that comes out next year!
