England forwards: Who will ‘lead the line for Southgate’ this summer?



With Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claiming Marcus Rashford will be fit for this summer’s European Championship, England manager Gareth Southgate can breathe a sigh of relief.

The national team coach certainly has a tough decision ahead, though, in terms of what other forwards he will select for the competition.

But Southgate has been handed a major boost in the past couple of days. Solskjaer has confirmed that Rashford will be for the club before the end of the campaign, meaning he will more than likely be ready for the tournament in June.

And that was not the only positive news Southgate was given this week. The England boss will also be excited at the prospect of having Harry Kane fit and fighting for Euro 2020.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has said that Kane is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

If fully fit, both Kane and Rashford will certainly be called up by Southgate. The pair are currently 1/8 and 4/6 to make the squad.

And it’s looking increasingly likely that they will be joined by wingers Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho. Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham also looks to have done enough to be included for the upcoming tournament.

With 11 league goals for Manchester City this season, Sterling may well just be the first attacking name on the team sheet. He’s available at 1/25 to make the squad.

His fellow forward Sancho is currently 1/12 to receive a call-up, having managed 14 goals and 14 assists in the Bundesliga this season.

And Abraham is available at 1/5 thanks to his 13 Premier League goals for the current campaign.

But there is still plenty to play for in the English top-flight. And that means there is still much for Southgate to consider.

Despite his 17 league goals, Leicester striker Jamie Vardy will more than likely be out of contention after his decision to retire from international football some years ago. But he’s currently 7/4 to accept a call-up this summer.

And that may leave some space in the setup for Southampton frontman Danny Ings. The former Liverpool striker has 15 league goals this season, and is currently 6/5 to make the final squad.

Also in contention are Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi and Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin. They are currently 15/8 and 5/2 respectively to make the cut.

Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood is available at 4/1, with Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson currently 7/1. Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah is available at 25/1.
