Neville: Southgate must play Mainoo, Palmer and Gordon

Gary insisted that England boss must trust the players.

Gary Neville has claimed that Gareth Southgate must start the Three Lions subs who came on and improved the performance vs. Slovenia in the Euro 2024 1/8 finals.

Kobbie Mainoo and Cole Palmer performed superbly compared to the players that they replaced in England’s yesterday’s 0-0 draw, which was enough for the 1st place in Group C. Anthony Gordon and Trent Alexander-Arnold also came on the pitch in the 2nd half – and Gary shares the Three Lions head coach must now rely in his young players to drive England’s performance to a higher level.

Asked about what he thinks about Mainoo, Palmer and Gordon, Neville praised them and claimed that he must add Alexander-Arnold to that.

“Every sub improved our level. That sometimes can happen. The match opens up a bit. But I felt those footballers who came on would make England play better from the 1st minute, not just later from the bench.”
