England training session
After parting with 4 names Aaron Ramsdale, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James and Tammy Abraham due to injury, coach Gareth Southgate has summoned 4 additional factors including: Sam Johnstone (West Brom), Kyle Walker – Peters (Southampton), Tyrick Mitchell (Crystal Palace) and Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa).
Among them, it is worth noting that Mitchell – a defender who is playing prominently in the ranks of Crystal Palace. This is the first time he has been called up to the national team, what is more remarkable is that he has never participated in the national youth ranks.
The Sky Sports page recently quoted coach Southgate’s statement last week to explain why he summoned the player born in 1999: “Tyrick, we were really impressed with him. Indeed, with In his current form, he is very close to a ticket to the national team. I think that he has very good defense and plays well with his teammates on the field. Also, in big matches. , Tyrick also copes very well.”
Under the flexible hand of coach Patrick Vieira at Palace, Mitchell gradually perfected the role of left-back. He plays aggressively, effectively and is often trusted. Up to the present time of the season, the 22-year-old player has played 33 matches, contributed 2 assists.
