Gareth Southgate says Ben White is behind three England rivals after he dropped the Arsenal defender from England’s squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers.

‘With Ben… it’s similar with Ben and Trent [Alexander-Arnold] really, the three boys who are in as right full-backs we’ve got them just ahead of those two,’ Southgate said.

‘We’re blessed in that position with the depth of talent. It’s the hardest position to pick, albeit it’s never straightforward criteria and it’s always shifting around a little bit on form as well.

‘But Kyle [Walker] and Tripps [Trippier] were obviously the ones who played during the World Cup, started the games during the World Cup, have been consistent, and Reece coming back is another top player.

‘We’ve love to have that depth in every position on the field.’
