Ryan Sessegnon’s pathway to Gareth Southgate’s England now looks clear

The Fulham wonderkid would fit in perfectly in England’s current system.

England are out of the World Cup but they have made the nation proud with their efforts. Hope is now high for the future of the national team with this a young team full of potential going forward. But looking ahead to Euro 2020 there is one player in the starting XI who is unlikely to be there. Ashley Young, at 33-years-old, is England’s elder statesmen and a new left wing-back will be needed if England are to succeed.

Which is where Fulham come in. Ryan Sessegnon would be absolutely perfect in the role.

After emerging as a left-back the teenager has become a fully-functioning left-sided attacker for the Cottagers. He scored 16 goals and set up eight in an incredible 2017-18 campaign. The 18-year-old was subsequently linked with a big-money move away from Fulham but has decided to stay for the foreseeable future.  

Next season the Premier League will be graced by his presence. Fans are going to be blown away by his swashbuckling displays down Fulham’s left-hand side. If he performs like he can, then an England call-up will no doubt come next season.

 

The consensus is that Sessegnon will eventually move away from Fulham, such is his imperious talent. But for years to come, he will hopefully become an integral member of the England set-up.

England fans may have a lot to thank Fulham for in the years to come.
