Gareth Southgate explains Gallagher's inclusion in World Cup

Conor Gallagher was included in the England World Cup squad travelling to Qatar.

The 22-year-old was left out of the Nations League squad but he continued to play for the U-21s and improved under new Chelsea manager Graham Potter.

England manager Gareth Southgate explains his decision to include the 22-year-old midfielder in the 26-man World Cup squad.

Southgate explained: “We were really pleased with how he responded at being out of our squad.

“He went into the Under-21s and performed really well. His mentality was excellent. It is a good example that if you approach it in that way that there’s always a route back with us.

“He is fantastic at pressing the ball. I think there are going to be moments in these games where we are going to need different attributes. He is not as experienced with us as some of the others. But he has an impact in games.

“He has got a goal threat. He, when you talk about midfielders, do they score goals, stop goals and create goals. He does a bit of all of that actually.“
