Gareth Southgate explains why he dropped Mason Greenwood from England squad

Despite scoring two goals in just two games for Manchester United this season, Mason Greenwood has been dropped from England’s squad for the games against Hungary, Andorra and Poland during the international break.

Explaining his decision, England boss Gareth Southgate said: “Mason Greenwood is in our thoughts. We’re all aligned, Mason, the club, his family and us.

“The best thing for him after these first few games is to stay with his club. It’s clear on his performances he’d warrant being in the squad.”

Southgate has instead opted for Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Leeds’ Patrick Bamford as his striking options.
