Lions Watch: The Declan Rice dilemma, Trent Alexander-Arnold in the spotlight, and England’s dark ages

by Football Ramble Presents

Welcome to our brand new addition to Football Ramble Presents, Lions Watch, a show dedicated to all things England! 

Every Saturday, Marcus Speller and Luke Moore discuss the latest stories around Gareth Southgate’s squad in the build-up to the Euros. Who’s waiting by the phone? Who’s metatarsal is plastered on the front pages? And what does it all mean for that final 23-man squad? We will also be revisiting tournaments and matches gone by to trace the evolution that has shaped Southgate’s England side today – and watch out for interviews and plenty of your correspondence, too! 

This week, we look at the repercussions of Declan Rice’s injury and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s inconsistent form. We also take you back to the dark days of Fabio Capello, the scorching heat of Bloemfontein, and Roy Hodgson’s baptism of fire. The journey to Euro 2020 starts here. Join us!
