News has come out that England manager did approach Ireland’s Evan Ferguson to see if he’d make the switch to England. The cheek of this lot, Ferguson’s mother is English, but Evan Ferguson himself is born and raised in county Meath, so hands off lads.
According to the Mirror Gareth Southgate said the following;
“I think Ferguson’s played too many games at senior level, I think he’s got eight caps now. I’m not exactly sure on whether he definitely can’t, but I think he’s made it very clear he feels he was born in Ireland.
“I think he’s a bloody good player. We have to respect him, I don’t think he’s given any inkling that would be any different. At the same time, we were looking at Haaland and wishing that he might have been available as well. But we’ve got a pretty good number nine and we’re very happy with him!”
