Theo Walcott and Raheem Sterling were once dubbed to be the next best thing for England. But huge dips in form and injuries for both players have prevented them from hitting their true potential.
Firstly, Theo Walcott has been on absolute fire so far the season scoring 3 goals in the league and netting twice in the Champions League last night against Basel. His current run has got people talking about whether he deserves another chance in the National side, should he be given that chance? Personally I’ve been a fan of Walcott since he came on the scene. He’s an unbelievable talent when he’s not riddled with injuries and he’s currently proving that with his current form. His finish last night for his second goal was a cracking strike which smashed against the inside of the post and into the back of the net. What are your thoughts on Theo?
And secondly, Raheem Sterling has hit the ground running under Pep Gaurdiola and it seems the the Spaniard has really got the best out of the Manchester City forward. So far he has racked up 4 goals this season in the league. Also scoring twice last night, given one was in the wrong goal, but there really wasn’t a lot he could do about it. He made up for it later on in the game with a sublime goal that drew City level for a second time in the game. Sterling endured a very poor Euro 2016 campaign with England but has since been back to his best since returning to his club. Should Gareth Southgate include Raheem in his squad for the next 3 World Cup qualifiers? Will he perform on an international level?
