‘Arsenal takeover’ – These England fans have a mixed reaction to Smith Rowe and Ramsdale’s first starts

Posted by

England go into their match against San Marino on Monday night needing just a point from the game to ensure qualification to World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Given that San Marino have scored just the one goal in their nine games so far, losing them all, it should be a foregone conclusion that the Three Lions can rack up a decent score by the end of 90 minutes.

Whether or not that is the case, the win or draw is all that matters at this point, and that’s no doubt the reason why Gareth Southgate has picked a strong starting XI.

It’s an XI that’s received mixed reviews from England fans on social media, however.

Some are confused as to why the visitors have opted for such a strong side, whilst others are none too happy at the amount of Arsenal players in the team.

Bukayo Saka is generally a fixture now, with Southgate handing full debuts to Aaron Ramsdale and Emile Smith Rowe.
