England Manager Keen On Clarets

James Tarkowski and Ben Mee Considered For England

England manager Gareth Southgate is considering England call-ups for both Clarets centre backs Ben Mee and James Tarkowski, the pair have been central to the club’s outstanding start to the season. Jack Cork was given a first England cap in last month’s international against Germany at Wembley and his team-mates are also in the frame as Southgate ponders his World Cup squad.

Jack Cork was given a first England cap in last month’s international against Germany at Wembley and his team-mates are also in the frame as Southgate ponders his World Cup squad. Gareth Southgate has given debuts to Harry Maguire & Joe Gomez at centre back this season and is keen to look at the Burnley duo.  Only the Manchester clubs have a better defensive record than Sean Dyche’s side in the Premier League this season, with Mee and Tarkowski ever-present.

Gareth Southgate’s desire to look at new centre halves is likely to be bad news for Chris Smalling who has been dropped from the England squad, Gary Cahill who is clinging on to his place ahead of the World Cup.
