Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori and Liverpool ace Joe Gomez are in the England squad to take on the Bulgaria and Czech Republic.

England national team boss, Gareth Southgate delivered another ruthless selection last week and claimed that Tomori and Gomez would be a future of England’s backline.

The Red defender was picked for the Euro 2020 qualifiers away to the Bulgaria and Czech Republic despite having seen his time-limited at Liverpool with Joel Matip, and Virgil van Dijk are both ahead of him in the pecking order under Jurgen Klopp, however, Tomori seems to have cemented his place in the starting XI at Stamford Bridge and has become one of the key players of Frank Lampard.

They are aged only 22 and 21 respectively, however, England boss believes the pair have a huge potential and would be an ideal defensive duo for the national team.

“There are some players that might be having a brief spell for their club that is very good but we don’t think they can adapt their game to international football, or we think there’s a limit on where they might be able to go.

“Then we balance that against someone who isn’t playing regularly, perhaps, but who we think is of a high quality.

“So, it’s a preference. At centre-back at the moment Fik’s (Tomori) just come in to Chelsea and Joe (Gomez) isn’t playing as much

“But we have great belief they are going to be our better players moving forward because of their speed and their attributes and how we think that would translate into international football.
