Arsenal’s International dropout crisis

Arsenal have had more players than any other English clubs to have players pull out of their respective International squad when called up for the current break.

The first one to reject the chance to represent their country was English defender Ben White last week.

White previously clashed with one of Englands coaches at St.George’s Park Steve Holland who reportedly stated that the centre-back apparently didn’t watch enough football.

Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate was gutted by his players decision.

Southgate announced;”That’s a great shame, he’s a player I really like, he’s a player we took to the Euros when he was at Brighton, to the World Cup.

“I spoke to him post-Qatar, because I wanted to pick him. There was clearly reticence from his side, I don’t know fully why that is.

“But I have to respect that, I want to leave the door open for him, because he’s a good player and he can make a difference for England – but he’s not available to us.”

Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes then joined the bandwagon and decided he wasn’t prepared to represent his country on monday because of injury, which apparently isn’t as bad as sounds.

He’s been holding a foot problem which saw him depart the Brazil training camp however there’s been no proper statement released about the problem to why he left his countrymen.

Although multiple outlets have confirmed that this is just a precautionary action.

The injury was recorded as being legitimate and not; “too bad”.

Then last night crucial Gunners winger Bukayo Saka also ruled out any chances of him playing for the Three Lions due to a recent niggling injury.

Again Saka withdrew from St.George’s training ground because of precautionary reasons where he had gone back to Arsenal to have his situation looked at by the medical team.

A statement from the FA later declared;”Bukayo Saka has left the England camp and returned to his club for continued rehabilitation.

“The Arsenal forward reported to St George’s Park with an injury and has been unable to participate in training.”

Many are speculative that these three key Arsenal players are saving themselves for the Gunners title race charge in the following ten Premier League games of the season.
