Southgate dismisses ´nonsense´ talk of club v country row over injuries

Thursday, November 9, 2017

England manager Gareth Southgate insists there is no club v country row following a raft of withdrawals from his squad to face Germany and Brazil over the coming week.

Southgate has lost Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Henderson, Fabian Delph and Harry Winks from his initial 25-man selection, with West Brom's Jake Livermore and Burnley midfielder Jack Cork brought in as replacements.

Kane missed Tottenham's 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in October with a hamstring problem but returned to face Real Madrid and Crystal Palace - the match in which he picked up his latest knock.

After Mauricio Pochettino expressed confidence that Kane would be fit for the North London Derby against Arsenal next weekend, Southgate was pressed on whether he believed his dropouts were genuinely too hurt to play.
