Beckham injury overshadows england win as Roy Hodgson feels United were to blame for defeat at Newcastle Read more
While England could have avoided this result by playing at home to Wales in the autumn and allowing the country to play at home to Denmark and Germany rather than England – the latter having hosted all three of these teams at Euro 2016 in June, including the final – they did not take this chance to ensure it was their last game.
When Hodgson was criticised after losing his starting forward Danny Welbeck to injury in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat by Brazil, he was right to raise these concerns and said his players were focused on getting ready for the final and not dwelling on anything in particular.
He made no mention of Welbeck’s status for Euro 2016, but England needed him in order to qualify for France, and if he could not complete the qualifying process he would not be eligible to play in the semi-finals and the last 16. Hodgson also pointed out, however, that his starting team will be stronger and stronger should Welbeck be fit for the final with England likely to be favoured over Germany더킹카지노 and Denmark again.
He was clear that if Welbeck were to miss the final he would not only be on the substitutes’ bench and out of the squad; he would be ineligible for selection for France, though, and so his role might change.
“It is the big picture and the overall우리카지노 picture. Danny [Welbeck] is not going to be on the bench, he’s not even going to have an international call up, which I think has got that negative effect on the squad. This is what that means and that’s a real worry,” he said.
“We want him to come back as soon as possible. He has to take the training for the next five weeks. That’s what it’s got to be in terms of this week or not. You want to play as many games as possible, but there will be some games when Danny won’t play and the players won’t train to the level that they were last year. The only way I’ve 바카라got to prepare him for that is for every game this week he is on the training ground.”
England have faced teams in the knockout stages in five of the past six World Cups and four of the five group stages. They have lost all four and reached this tournament to draw with Germany and France, albeit beating the latter two in the first two games. Their win over Argentina is a result of an excellent defensive display from England but England hav
