Gareth Southgate has exposed Danny Drinkwater rejected a England call-up because he ‘didn’t feel ready’. England manager Southgate will unleash a vibrant team including Tammy Abraham, Jordan Pickford and Ruben Loftus-Cheek against Germany on Friday evening, while Eric Dier captains the side.

Drink Water

However, the manager has disclosed that he was willing for Drinkwater to become listed on up with the squad this week, and then find the offer rebuffed. Chelsea resources are adamant their summer time signing from Leicester has endured a recurrence of the leg injury that held him from the opening 8 weeks of the growing season.

Nevertheless, Drinkwater’s decision to miss international duty boosts questions in the midfielder’s wish to play for England. Southgate held discussions with Drinkwater before this week following a raft of accident withdrawals from his original squad. However the midfielder, who may have played out just 103 minutes of football this season, enlightened the England manager he didn’t desire to be considered.

Stamford Bridge insiders insisted on Thursday night that Drinkwater re-injured his leg arriving on as a overdue replacement against Manchester United on Weekend, a difficulty that has hindered his training timetable this week. However, Southgate didn’t reference any accident when talking about Drinkwater’s situation on Thursday night.
