World Cup star Trippier is driven by the Nations Nations Squadron of England … but Harry Kane is appropriate
- Gareth Southgate has announced his 23-man team for the Nations League
- The English boss did not find a place for Tottenham right back Kieran Trippier
- Harry Winks, Nathan Redmond and James Ward-Prowse are also missing
- The England captain, Harry Kane, did take care of the consequences of his injuries
Kieran Trippier missed the opportunity to add an international trophy to his World Cup heroism in Russia after Gareth Southgate of the English team was omitted for next week's UEFA Nations League final.
Southgate has deleted the 27-man squadron he had chosen fourteen days ago from the 23 names he should have given UEFA on Monday. Trippier is the big name and together with fellow Tottenham player Harry Winks and Southampton duo Nathan Redmond and James Ward-Prowse.
However, Ward-Prowse and Redmond will remain in training with the rest of the group at St George & # 39; s Park.
Gareth Southgate has announced his 23-person English team for the Nations League final
England captain Harry Kane has made the 23-strong team, but Kieran Trippier has been dropped
It was less than 12 months ago that Trippier emerged as one of the stars of the English World Cup campaign, excelling on the right flank and scoring a free kick in the semi-final against Croatia. He was considered the best dead-ball specialist in England since David Beckham.

But Trippier has occasionally struggled with his form this season and made only three appearances for England, and he lost Trent Alexander-Arnold, who was excellent for Liverpool and Kyle Walker from Manchester City.
The team of course includes Harry Kane, but there is no room for Winks, who, like Kane, was recently eliminated by an injury. Declan Rice is, as expected, mentioned as one of the midfielders.
Southgate, who has to hope that the English-speaking players involved endured the Europa League and Champions League final unscathed for last week's semi-final against the Netherlands in Guimaraes, said Monday: & # 39; ; n had a major impact.
& # 39; He had such a & # 39; n brilliant World Cup. He is a very valuable member of our team and has a great attitude with us, real passion in playing for England, but Trent (Alexander-Arnold) and Kyle (Walker) have closed the season so strongly.
& # 39; So it's a position where we have real competition for places. That is as difficult a decision as we had to make.
& # 39; Harry Winks is a player we really like and that is difficult because he hasn't played for a few months and we can't see him in training.
James Ward-Prowse (L) and Nathan Redmond (R) also missed a place in the Nations League
& # 39; He is training with Spurs again, he may be involved in the weekend, but we would not see him until two days before the game. So when we had other midfielders who were with us or played regularly, that was the only thought behind that decision.
& # 39; Harry can still get into that mix and did very well for us when he played with England, so is a player we like.
& # 39; Hard decisions have been made and we are of course a bit complicated with so many players involved in the Champions League, but we are very excited about the team and the players around it. & # 39;
