Gareth Southgate steps in to convince Man United starlet Scott McTominay to play for England

United starlet Scott McTominay to play for England

The England manager is meeting today with the 21 year-old midfielder, who has the choice to play for either England or Scotland internationally.

Great Scott: McTominay has been chosen ahead of Paul Pogba in Manchester United’s midfield recently

England manager Gareth Southgate is set to meet Manchester United’s breakout star Scott McTominay on Friday, to convince him to play for England, according to a Sky Sports report.

The midfielder has made 15 appearances in all competitions this season so far, and has even been preferred to Paul Pogba in recent games. At the weekend, he did a great job of marking and virtually nullifying Eden Hazard, one of the best players in the league, in a 2-1 win over Chelsea.

McTominay hasn’t played internationally at any of the junior levels, and has the option to choose between England and Scotland at the senior level. He was born and brought up in England, but had Scottish grandparents.

Scotland manager Alex McLeish met with him last month for similar discussions.

Opportunities galore

England are currently short in central midfield, and McTominay could provide just the long-term option that the Three Lions have been looking for. That area of the team is really unsettled, and Southgate has tried several options in recent games. It is very important to find the right combination with some time to spare ahead of the World Cup later this year in Russia. There is nothing to suggest that McTominay can’t already be looked at as a regular option.

The likes of Jake Livermore, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jack Cork, Lewis Cook and James Ward-Prowse have all featured for England in the last twelve months. All these players have fewer than 10 caps each to their names, a clear indication that there will be several opportunities for McTominay to prove himself.

Scotland, on the other hand, failed to qualify for the World Cup. Ironically enough, they actually have a more settled central midfield than England. The likes of Darren Fletcher, James McCarthur, James Morrison and Scott Brown are all experienced campaigners at the international level, and it could be difficult for McTominay to break through.

At the club level, it will be extremely interesting to see how his career pans out. Mourinho, often criticised in his career for not trusting youngsters enough, has been full of praise for McTominay and will continue giving him exposure and experience in the first team. If he maintains his fitness and focus, there is nothing to suggest that he can’t scale any heights he wants to with time.
