Many Aston Villa fans have been left stunned at the decision by Gareth Southgate not to pick Ezri Konsa for England for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
As per a tweet from the Three Lions, Conor Coady, Eric Dier, Harry Maguire and John Stones have all been picked as options ahead of him in the centre of the defence, as well as his club teammate Tyrone Mings.
Should Villa sell Konsa for big money?
Ollie Watkins has also been picked by Southgate for his first senior international call-up, but several members of the AVFC faithful were still left to question why Konsa was not selected with them for the three qualifying games against San Marino, Albania and Poland coming up.
It could have been the perfect opportunity for the 23-year-old to show what he can do ahead of the Euros in the summer, but now it looks more unlikely that he will make that squad given his recent omission.
Aston Villa fan reaction to Konsa omission
These Villa supporters fumed after hearing of Konsa’s omission on Twitter, with one fan saying that they were ‘shocked’ while another branding it as ‘scary’:
“Insane how Konsa didn’t make it but Dier did”
“I hope Konsa chooses Portugal now. Ridiculous he’s not included.”
“Fully deserved for Watkins – struggling to understand how Dier gets in ahead of Ezri Konsa though! #utv”
“Well done Ollie, but where’s Konsa?”
“Konsa isn’t that’s shocking. Scary how this man picks his squads”
“Shocked to not see Konsa but congratulations Ollie and Tyrone”
