Arsenal fans can’t believe what England boss Gareth Southgate has done

Gareth Southgate’s England team selection for this evening’s UEFA Nations League fixture against Iceland has got a number of Arsenal fans talking.

The Three Lions go into the game hoping to avenge the 2-1 loss when the two teams last met in the round of 16 stage at Euro 2016.

And it’s the national team’s first outing since thrashing Kosovo 4-0 last November as the latest edition of the European Championships – scheduled for this summer – was pushed back to next year.

It would appear that England are lining up with three central defenders.

Declan Rice, Joe Gomez and Eric Dier make up the back three, with Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier operating at wing-back on either side.

In midfield, James Ward-Prowse partners debutant Phil Foden.

The attacking trio is very exciting with Jadon Sancho and Raheem Sterling offering support to captain Harry Kane.

England XI : Pickford; Walker, Dier, Rice, Gomez, Trippier; Ward-Prowse, Foden; Sancho, Kane, Sterling

Most of the reaction from Arsenal supporters on social media has centred around there not being a place for Ainsley Maitland-Niles starting XI.
