Arsenal hero Winterburn: White deserves England chance

Arsenal hero Nigel Winterburn says Ben White should be in the England squad.

Winterburn has once again been impressed with the performances of the Gunners defender, even though he has begun this season at right-back following the emergence of William Saliba.

And the former Highbury star is at a loss to explain why Gareth Southgate has overlooked the 24-year-old.

"I am surprised, but I never try to predict what England managers do with players," Winterburn said in conversation with FreeSuperTips.

"But I am surprised. He was initially in the last squad so if he was in the last England squad, I don't understand why he wouldn't be in this squad.

"Ben White hasn't made that many appearances for England so I would think he deserves a look in - especially when you see some of the players in that squad and the club form they are currently producing.

"There is going to be a lot of debate over the next ten days, especially if England don't pick up their form in the next two games.

"It's going to be interesting watching those games and the reaction of the supporters during and perhaps after."
