Southampton confirmed on Tuesday that club captain James Ward-Prowse has been called up for England duty.
And, as to be expected, a number of Saints fans have been reacting to the news on social media.
The 26-year-old will fill in for Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips, who withdrew from Gareth Southgate’s squad through injury.
Ward-Prowse missed out on a place in Southgate’s European Championship squad over the summer but will now have the chance to impress the manager and possibly add to his eight caps as England prepare for World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.
Will Ward-Prowse leave next summer?
Saints fans react
Southampton shared the news regarding Ward-Prowse’s call up on their official Twitter page. This is what these Saints supporters had to say in reply, with one labelling it as ‘great news’.
“Fair play to him considering his performances…”
“Deserved but I’d be surprised if he gets a kick.”
“BOUT DAMN TIME”
