Ross Barkley deserves Euro 2016 chance despite drop in form

Ross Barkley's England hopes appear precarious ahead of their Euro 2016 squad announcement. It was not so long ago that the prospect of England heading for the European Championships without Ross Barkley appeared highly improbable, the kind of thought that would get you laughed out of the room. Beginning the season in electric fashion, the 22-year-old midfielder and his developing creative talents looked set to fire Everton to something more than another season of midtable nothingness. Barkley hit the ground running, firing in an opening day equaliser in the home draw against Watford and...

Sol Campbell: England should not start John Stones at Euro 2016

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney helped England see off Australia in a Euro warmup. Russia captain Roman Shirokov explains his side look forward to the tough task of beginning Euro 2016 against England. Sol Campbell believes England cannot afford to start John Stones at Euro 2016 as the defender makes too many mistakes. Stones, 22, endured a difficult season with Everton and appears to be behind Chris Smalling and Gary Cahill in the pecking order for a starting place in France. However, Roy Hodgson is set to only take three central defenders to the tournament -- as well as Eric Dier -- which means Stones could easily be thrust into the team in a pressure situation. "If you keep making mistakes...

England cannot risk starting with Stones ? Campbell

Sol Campbell says Roy Hodgson cannot afford to take the risk of selecting John Stones in his England starting XI this summer.

The 22-year-old was one of the hottest properties in the transfer market this time last year but his stock has fallen slightly after a difficult season for Everton.

Stones is a talented reader of the game and distributor from the back, but costly errors have left a question mark over his readiness to play at the highest level.

Chris Smalling is expected to take one of the spots in central defence but Hodgson must decide whether to partner the Manchester United man with either Stones or the more experienced Gary Cahill.

Campbell, who played 71 times for England and was named in the FIFA team of the tournament after the 2002 World Cup, has no doubts whom he would pick.

“If you keep making mistakes at international level, you’re going to suffer because one mistake in a tournament and you can be out,” Campbell said.

“If you make mistakes at a domestic level, you have more time to learn. He is learning. He just has to understand there are moments to play the ball and moments to keep hold of the ball. He just needs to find that balance.

“I personally would go for Smalling and Cahill. I would go for the experience of those two guys. For me, something drastic would have to happen for Stones to start. You start with your most solid back four and go from there.”

England will head to France with an exciting wealth of attacking options, with Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Wayne Rooney, Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling just some of those vying for starting places against Russia on June 11.

At the other end, choices are fewer. Gone are the days when Campbell was fighting off John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, Jamie Carragher and Ledley King to play in defence for England, and he believes the national team’s lack of options now is symptomatic of the game more generally.

“Football has changed,” Campbell said. “Players want to go forward all the time.

“There are so many attacking midfielders. Then there are centre backs who want to be defensive midfielders and full-backs that secretly want to be wingers.

“When I played I didn’t mind right-back and left-back going forward but one would stay and one would go. Now they both go. What is going on?

“Leicester have shown that a solid back four and people knowing their positions is key. You need to be flexible at the right time, not just, ‘I want to go, go, go’.

“You’ll get clever forwards exploiting those spaces so you have to get the balance right.”

Hodgson’s own future is also on the line this summer given his contract expires after the tournament and the Football Association plan only to review it once the competition is finished.

Campbell believes England can make the final but says reaching the last four is a must.

“I think England will get to the final, I really do,” he added.

“Success for Hodgson is semi-finals plus. You have to look at what he has done, he ticks a lot of boxes for the FA, but he has to at least take England to the semi-finals.

“You need to see progression and this England squad, which is an exciting squad, deserves progression in all departments.”

Ronald de Boer insists brother would be ?right man? for Everton

Ronald de Boer believes his brother Frank would be the ideal coach to inspire Everton’s John Stones to reach his potential.

For all of his ability in possession, Stones has been criticised this season for some costly lapses in defence.

He remains at the centre of a wider debate over whether his footballing instincts should be nurtured or if he should instead be instructed to kick the ball long.

Everton’s unreliable defence was a major factor in the team’s struggles that culminated in the sacking of manager Roberto Martinez, creating the managerial vacancy that Frank de Boer – until recently at Ajax – has been linked with.

At his peak, the Dutchman was a classy central defender known for his passing ability, essentially similar to Stones.

Having played alongside Frank for much of his career, twin brother Ronald knows how he would shape Stones, and is convinced the England international would thrive under him.

SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 15:  John Stones of Everton laughs during the Barclays Premier League match between Southampton and Everton at St Mary's Stadium on August 15, 2015 in Southampton, United Kingdom.  (Photo by Christopher Lee/Getty Images)

“Frank was a type like Stones,” said De Boer, 46. “My brother never kicked the ball in the stands: never did it in his life, always trying to have a solution.

“Stones is the same and that is why he sometimes makes mistakes but that is also why people like him. Frank can help him to get better, with his 112 caps and so many trophies.

“If I see what (Frank) did also already with the youngsters like Kenny Tete and (Jairo) Riedewald at 19 years old, and (Mitchell) Dijks, (Joel) Veltman, all four of them are full internationals.

“Frank would never choose a player who’s just defending, he would like to have a guy like Stones. Frank gets crazy if somebody kicks the ball out.”

The concern remains that, at a time when the Football Association is trying to encourage a more possession-based style of football and to develop young English players’ technique, the wrong manager would inhibit Stones’ cultured instincts.

Ronald de Boer recognises Stones’ talent requires polishing but he is adamant it would be a mistake to change his game, believing he would be more appreciated on the continent.

“He has to realise when to take risks or not, but you must never take away his qualities,” he said. “People like him because of what he did. If he now changes his game, he wouldn’t be that special, because he can defend, but what makes him so exciting is that he can play from the back.

“(Pep) Guardiola would probably love him, a player like that, who also never kicks a ball into the stands. They want players like that.

“We like that (elsewhere in Europe). But I think it will come, they will appreciate him (in England). Maybe he’ll play (for England), have a great European Championship. He has great potential.”

Paper Talk: Reds eye £25m Saints star; Hazard?s Man Utd link

Liverpool are ready to turn their attention to Sadio Mane after missing out on Mario Gotze, while Eden Hazard is the latest name to be linked with Manchester United, according to Friday’s newspapers.

 

LIVERPOOL TO GO FOR MANE AFTER GOTZE SNUB

Sadio Mane: Southampton forward fit to face Crystal Palace

Liverpool have turned their focus to signing Southampton’s £25million-rated Sadio Mane after failing to land Mario Gotze.

Jurgen Klopp has turned to the Saints winger after top target Mario Gotze made it clear he would prefer to stay at Bayern Munich for another season.

Manchester United tried and failed to sign Mane last summer while Tottenham were also interested in the Senegal speedster.

Mane cost Saints £11.8m from Red Bull Salzburg in 2014.

But Ronald Koeman wants at least double that for one of his star men who last May scored the fastest ever Premier League hat-trick in just two minutes and 56 seconds against Aston Villa.

Liverpool have made a habit of raiding St Mary’s with Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne and Rickie Lambert all moving to Anfield in the last two summers, with both The Guardian and the Daily Star claiming a move for Mane is now top of their agenda.

 

MOURINHO WANTS HAZARD AT UNITED

Jose Mourinho wants to bring Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard to Manchester United, according to reports in Italy, and as covered in the Daily Express.

The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea in recent months after a disappointing season in west London.

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have been credited with interest, while United have also kept tabs on him.

But following the news of Mourinho signing a deal to become United’s new boss, their pursuit of the Belgian has increased rapidly.

According to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli, Mourinho has spoken directly with Hazard over a reunion at Old Trafford.

He tweeted: “Hazard wants to leave Stamford Bridge and Mourinho has spoken directly to him. This is what has happened. #cfc #mufc.”

Earlier on he suggested that a bid between £65million and £75m could be offered to prise him away from Chelsea.

He tweeted: “Mourinho wants Hazard from Chelsea at Manchester United. £65 mln offer could reach £75 mln. First contact with his entourage ok. #mufc #cfc.”

Hazard scored six goals for the Blues last season and is under contract until 2020.
