Mike Williamson, who is 12 years old and just six and a half feet tall, is a small, undersized forward for Barnet Hammer and England U14s. His coach has had to "tell him to go wide" at times to try and stop him. What is it about him that allows him to succeed in such a high level of football?


Time is not the only thing on his side. Wales shot-stopper Davies is currently first choice in a titanic tussle to be chief custodian in ST4, but in Michael O’Neill, Bursik has a manager who has full trust in youth in the red-and-white corner of the Creative County. With Bursik having represented England at every level from Under-17 to Under-21, and given his rise over the last 18 months, don’t be surprised to see the 21-year-old in the first-team squad in another 18 months.

Harry Kane had a tumultuous summer even before the Euros, and was questioned before, during and after the tournament. The striker was keen to leave Spurs but that never happened, he missed almost all of pre-season and was greeted by a new coach in Nuno Espírito Santo who has already been and gone. In that time, Kane has scored one league goal and looked a long way off his best. A break may be what he needs – not even goals will help. Going away to build up fitness and sharpness in order to come back refreshed is required but that cannot happen, so he has to rely on teammates to dig him out more. He will already be looking towards the summer for a rest. (Source: www.theguardian.com)



Versatile deep in midfield and on either flank defensively, the England U20 international has benefited from being on the fringes of the Arsenal first team in the last few seasons to becoming a regular starter in the Europa and Premier League respectively. Cruelly injured at left back in the Gunner’s first game against Manchester City, a return to form should see the young England player fight for a starting berth at the Emirates.

I did nine back-to-back summer tournaments and never got back to feeling myself until after Christmas, when the women’s game takes a break, but the men do not have that opportunity this winter. Few of England’s players have hit the ground running in the Premier League as they struggle to process the disappointment of missing out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win a major tournament on home soil, and perhaps the mental anguish has taken its toll.

His game time at Manchester City has been restricted under Pep Guardiola due to the presence of two generation-defining talents in David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne. With the former moving on at the end of this season - whenever that may be - Foden will have a full Premier League campaign to show Southgate exactly what he can do on a consistent basis.

English youngsters. With England relatively light in the holding midfield and central defensive positions, both players have an opportunity to break into the team once they've proven themselves at club level. Glowing reviews from Skipp's loan spell with Norwich City suggest he's earned a proper first-team opportunity in north London next season. (Source: www.givemesport.com)


A former product of Blackpool’s academy, the City keeper was a penalty shootout hero in England’s U17 route to the final saving and scoring against Japan during the round of 16. Having spent time training with Pep Guardiola and the first team, a loan move for regular time between the sticks will showcase his talents.

The diminutive and tricky winger who was playing Sunday League football only four years ago has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top level, scoring on his Premier League debut against Manchester City in January 2017. The England U17 World Cup winner soon moved to RB Leipzig on loan a year later, scoring a last minute winner on his debut and finding the back of net five times in 11 appearances. A permanent move to the rising German club will fast track his development on and off the pitch. (Source: versus.uk.com)
