'One of the best': Jamie Redknapp thinks 'fantastic' Arsenal international has solved long-time Gunners problem

Arsenal defender, Ben White, played the full 90 minutes for England last night as he helped the Three Lions see off Switzerland at Wembley.

White has been outstanding for Arsenal this season since arriving in the summer from Brighton. Despite costing a fee which many raised their eyebrows at, White has produced the goods and is now a key figure at Arsenal. Playing mainly at centre-back, the former Leeds loanee has also slotted in at right-back when needed.

And speaking before England’s game last night at Wembley, former Liverpool midfielder, Jamie Redknapp, was full of praise for White and believes he’s solved a problem position for Arsenal.

“Ben’s form for Arsenal has been fantastic. He’s really formed a good partnership at the back, you know, probably the best they’ve had for a long time at Arsenal. I think he needs to play alongside someone that’s dominant,” Redknapp said of White on Sky Sports.

White showed his versatility last night for Gareth Southgate. England adopted a number of different formations and game plans in the 90 minutes, with White comfortable with his role throughout.

Everyone knew Ben White was a talented player but few would have expected him to make the step up to Arsenal quite like he has. He has been excellent alongside Gabriel and he looked right at home in an England shirt too.

The key for White, now, is to keep up consistency and cement himself in Southgate’s squad for years to come. He’s certainly capable and while ever Arsenal are doing well, White should get the calls.

This England squad has a good core and Arsenal players are a big part of it. White, then, can go on to get plenty of caps if he carries on like he is.
