Southampton’s key midfielder James Ward-Prowse re-enters England’s fold today after Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips withdrew from Gareth Southgate’s side with injury.

The change was confirmed directly from, stating that “Phillips was evaluated after Leeds United’s victory over Watford on Saturday and has been ruled out of upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.”

For Ward-Prowse, it is an opportunity to join the eight caps he has received since his debut for England in March 2017 in the Three Lions’ 1-0 loss to Germany at Signal Iduna Park.

It took another 27 chances for the Portsmouth native to win his second international game when he received 9 minutes off the bench in a 5-1 win against Montenegro, but Southgate recently called him up in June in a pair of international matches. friendlies against Austria and Romania while included in the XI against Tricolor.

Despite his enormous influence at St. Mary’s with Ralph Hasenhüttl scoring 23 goals and 15 assists for the Austrian, including last season in which JWP scored 8 goals and 8 assists in the league, he has yet to earn a valuable spot – and regular – among England’s favorite Southgate teams.

Phillips’ absence points to a big conundrum for Southgate

There are few players more key to the operation of England in recent times than Kalvin Phillips.

The Leeds native and staunch midfielder on Elland Road under Marcelo Bielsa has earned parity for England as his importance to Gareth Southgate has become clear.

As Declan Rice’s senior partner, the core duopoly was at the heart of an impressive England team that reached the final of Euro2020 last summer, only to fall to Italy on a penalty shoot-out.

With Phillips on the verge of missing the two meetings against Andorra and Hungary, the true options of the central midfield rest in the aforementioned Rice & Ward-Prowse, as well as in Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, with Chelsea’s Mason Mount able to substitute in paper.

It remains to be seen how Southgate intends to address Phillips’ absence, but fortunately the match against Andorra in Andorra la Vella can provide a valuable testing ground.
