Gordon Proclaims: England’s Euro 2024 Team Faces Unprecedented Competition

Anthony Gordon aspires to muscle his way into Gareth Southgate’s main squad for the looming Euro 2024. The tournament marks his debut on England’s stage.

England, according to winger Anthony Gordon, faces its fiercest competition for spots yet as Euro 2024 approaches.

The Newcastle United attacker gears up for his inaugural game under Southgate against Serbia this Sunday.

A plethora of talents including Bukayo Saka, Cole Palmer, Phil Foden, Jarrod Bowen, and Eberechi Eze vie for a slot on Southgate’s side, notably on the flanks.

Gordon observes unprecedented squad depth as England enters the contest in Germany as co-favorites with France.

“The squad’s competitiveness is unparalleled. Every player is peaking at the right moment,” he mentioned.

“Indeed, the scramble for positions is real. All are primed to showcase their finest,” he affirmed.

Concerns hovered post-John Stones’ injury during England’s unforeseen 1-0 loss to Iceland; however, the Manchester City defender was spotted training before Sunday’s kickoff in Grenderskirchen.

Luke Shaw, too, joined the preliminary drills. Despite nursing a hamstring injury, the Manchester United defender is progressing well.

Gordon reassured, “Seeing Stones back and operational is a relief. He’s vital for us and looks solid.”

“Shaw’s return to training has been impressive. Our joint rehab showed him ahead of his recovery timeline,” Gordon shared.

Southgate, whose tenure could conclude in December, hinted this European Championship might be his final campaign with England.

Gordon, hopeful for Southgate’s extended leadership, said, “On a personal note, I’d urge him to stay. His guidance alongside his team has transformed our transition from youth to senior levels phenomenally.”
