Tottenham Hotspur: Fans react to talkSPORT caller wanting Harry Kane dropped from England line-up

England’s 2-1 defeat to Czech Republic has exposed Gareth Southgate to criticism over both his squad and team selection methods. He claimed he’s selecting players based on form before the game, yet afterwards he admitted “there are players who are not playing well for their clubs, that is the situation” (quotes via BBC). It’s caused debate over who should have started the game on Friday night.

One frustrated fan called talkSPORT’s The Sports Bar show and claimed Harry Kane should be dropped from the squad because he’s underperforming for Spurs and he should be replaced by Wayne Rooney. Harry Kane has scored seven goals in 10 appearances for his club this season, while Wayne Rooney is still in the MLS, having scored 11 goals in 28 appearances.

TalkSPORT’s Twitter account posted a clip of the call, in which Jason Cundy describes the caller as a “buffoon”, and the replies were predictably sarcastic. One fan even thought Jamie Vardy and Rooney’s wives would do a better job for England nowadays.

You can see some of their reactions to the tweet below:

Who would you have selected for the England squad that Gareth Southgate left out?
