Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been included in Gareth Southgate’s first England squad ahead of the international break which is now underway.

The Ox, somehow, has been given a recall which just really goes to show how much football these people actually watch.

I don’t want to slate the Ox unnecessarily, but is there really not a better player in the whole of England who deserves that slot more?

As for Theo, it’s hard to argue with him retaining his place, something that would have seemed an unthinkable thing to say before the season got underway.

He’s earned his recall.

Nothing for Jack or Kieran which is not surprising.
