19-year-old ‘in the thoughts’ of Southgate, ahead of England squad

Even though fans of Liverpool and the England team don’t always have the best relationship, it’s always good to see a player achieve their dreams of representing their national team.

We have in Harvey Elliott a player who has had plenty of minutes at the highest level this season and who has clearly caught the eye of Gareth Southgate.

As reported by Sky Sports: “Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott and Brentford’s Ivan Toney are very much in the England manager’s thoughts, although it is a matter of touch whether either of them will be included at this stage.”

It would be great if the 19-year-old was included in the squads for the upcoming friendlies against Italy and Germany this month, and is expected to at least feature in the U21 squad, during the same period.

With the World Cup just around the corner this winter too, the former Fulham youngster has let it be late to make an effort for the Qatari side, but that is certainly a possibility, if he performs well for the Reds.

It is clear that Jurgen Klopp has a lot of confidence in the midfielder and has already used him a lot this season, although there is no doubt that it has also been due to the issue of injuries in the squad.

While watching the national team isn’t exactly a pastime enjoyed by many of our fans, few would stand in the way of our number 19 if he wanted to go and represent his nation.

Whether it’s for a first senior call-up or his dream prospect of taking part on the biggest stage in world football, best of luck to Red’s childhood.
