England vs Montenegro – EURO 2020 QUALIFER
Roaring England Secure Qualification for The EURO’s in Style despite pre-game controversy between England stars.
The young lions of England were rampant last night with a 7-0 victory over Montenegro, with a Harry Kane hattrick, a wonderful strike from Marcus Rashford and a goal from Oxlade-Chamberlain and Tammy Abraham (on his England debut), along with a very awkward looking own goal by the Montenegro defender. However, many people still believe that the England defence, which consisted with Harry Maguire and John Stones at the heart of the defence, looked shaky last night, as Montenegro had two good chances to put the ball in the back of the England net, which at one point would have made the game much more of a challenge for the England team.
England found themselves 4-0 up within 30 minutes of the game, which put the game to bed way earlier than many would have thought, as England did seem to also have defensive struggles in the away fixture. After his wonderful hattrick, Harry Kane is now chasing down the England goalscoring record, which is currently held by Wayne Rooney, with 52 goals, whilst Harry Kane’s hattrick has put him up to a tally of 31. Another stand out performer was Marcus Rashford, who has been in red hot form as of late, with 8 goals and 2 assists in his last 9 games for his club and country. Overall, A very routine yet emphatic win by the Three Lions.
An Incident Took Place Between England star Raheem Sterling and Liverpool’s Joe Gomez in England Training Earlier in The Week.
Unfortunately, the pre-game was largely dominated by the controversy between Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and Liverpool’s Joe Gomez which took place in England training on Monday, with tempers boiling over from Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Manchester City on the previous Sunday, where Joe Gomez appeared to shove Raheem Sterling aside. The incident has left Gomez with a cut below his eye, leading to Raheem being left out of the England squad which defeated Montenegro last night. The England fans last night made their feelings known about this situation, with a minority of the England fans appearing to boo Joe Gomez as he came on to the pitch for Mason Mount.
Raheem Sterling has apologised since the incident and has taken full responsibility, during a tweet posted last night which called out the section of the England fans who were heard booing Joe Gomez, enforcing the point that Gomez was not at fault in the slightest for the incident which took place in training. “It was hard for me to see my teammate get booed for something that was my fault.” Sterling claimed, “Joe hasn’t done anything wrong”, Sterling stated on his Twitter account.
England manager Gareth Southgate also spoke out against the section of the England fans who booed Joe Gomez last night, stating “No England player should ever be booed when they are wearing the shirt.” Southgate is said to have consoled a ‘devastated’ Joe Gomez, along with his family who were present at Wembley last night. However, Southgate has also faced criticism for the situation as many people believe that the situation should have been handled internally and not got out to the press.
