Dean Ashton says style of play is ‘unfair’ on some England players

first_imgThis proved to be a great choice during the World Cup, as first-choice centre-backs Harry Maguire, John Stones and Kyle Walker all loved to move into midfield, while goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is one of the best in the game at playing with the ball at his feet.However, Tuesday’s friendly defeat of Switzerland showed that the only elite players in the England set-up are capable of playing this system. Jack Butland replaced Pickford in goal and was worryingly poor in possession, while James Tarkowski, the Burnley defender, came into the back three.Neither of these players are used to playing out from the back at club level in the way Stones, Walker and Maguire do, and their lack of experience showed. 2 Martin Peters, 1966 World Cup final goal scorer for England, dies aged 76 England announce another friendly to begin preparations for Euro 2020 Chelsea ready to ‘break transfer record’ to sign winger ahead of Man United Mega deal Difficult And Ashton believes Southgate’s decision to continually play this system despite it being unsuitable for a selection of his players is ‘unfair’ on said players.Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Ashton said: “We’re seeing a style of play Gareth Southgate wants – he wants to play out the back – but it’s little bit unfair on some of the players where that is not the way they’ve played as they’ve grown up.“To ask a Butland or a Tarkowski who don’t and may never have played that way, to suddenly try something they are clearly uncomfortable about is a little unfair.“You’re better to play Angus Gunn who has more experience playing that way.”The Football Association has made it their plan to have all England teams learning the same style, which means from the seniors to the youngest age group playing out from defence is the order of the day.It’s a logical decision on the FA’s part, though Ashton believes the results might not be visible for another two decades.“If you go and watch youth team sides now it can be uncomfortable at times,” he continued, “because the goalkeeper does play out from the back there are a lot of mistakes so it can look embarrassing.
