England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed that it was not a tough decision to choose Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose in the squad for the Nations League finals. The duo have been consistent performers for their respective clubs in the Premier League this term and this has helped them get the nod over Manchester United’s Luke Shaw.
Speaking to reporters, Southgate said that the Three Lions are blessed to have numerous options when it comes to occupying the left side of the defence. He added that there were no doubts regarding the selection of Chilwell and Rose ahead of Shaw for the forthcoming internationals, he said: “We are blessed with so much talent in that department. Both Chilwell and Rose have been committed for England. No [when asked whether it was a difficult decision]. Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose have been excellent for us so they are ahead in the pecking order. But it gives us a lot of good options.”
