After brilliant start, Wolves player deserves international call-up

Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-half Conor Coady has been instrumental to the newly-promoted club’s superb defensive start to the season, and deserves to be called into the England set-up soon.

The 25-year-old has played every moment of Wolves’ season so far, where the club have conceded just six goals in eight matches. The defensive record is a remarkable feat for last season’s Championship winners, and with Coady at the heart of defence, Wolves have kept four clean sheets along the way.

With England manager Gareth Southgate showing a willingness to give uncapped players their first chance for the Three Lions, Coady must surely be in the conversation over the coming international breaks.

The likes of Jadon Sancho, James Maddison, and Mason Mount all earned their first call-ups this international cycle, and Coady has as strong a case as anyone of these players to be included in his country’s plans.

 

Alan Shearer recently joined the movement calling for international recognition for the centre-half, and Southgate will be likely to acquiesce in the coming months.

Conor Coady is excelling as a crucial cog for one of the Premier League’s top defences and is richly deserving of an England call-up as a reward for his flawless early-season performances.
