'Got to go in': Leeds United's Bamford picks his dream five-a-side team from his new England teammates
Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has picked his dream five a side team from his England teammates on the FA’s official channel.
Five a side style
The Leeds striker has only just been called up to the Three Lions’ squad for the first time.
But it seems that there are a select few England players who have already caught his eye.
He said: “Pickers in goal, Kalv has got to go in there, I’m going to go John Stones as playing against him at City was a nightmare, the way he travels with the ball, then Mason Mount and Harry Kane.”
Pickford’s reputation increased at Euro 2020, when the Everton stopper had a wonderful tournament.
England conceded just two goals over the tournament, with Pickford in wonderful form.
Stones and Phillips also were two stars of the competition with their performances earning great praise.
Mount was actually one of England’s quieter players as they made the final, but there is no doubting his quality.
He is very highly regarded at both Chelsea and England level and at the age of 22, he still has plenty of room to develop.
Kane, meanwhile, is arguably the best striker in world football and Bamford will surely be looking to learn all he can from training alongside the Tottenham man over the coming days.
