Everton defender Conor Coady gleams about being in England team

Everton defender Conor Coady has had a terrific start to the Premier League season, earning himself a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

And the colossal centre-half is more than happy to play his part as a wider member of the squad, not needing a leading role in the Three Lions XI.

Coady admitted that every top talent in the team wants to “play”, nevertheless, every player comes with one collective goal in the national team.

Speaking to Sportsmail, Coady revealed his love for being part of Southgate’s squad and his desire to help the team out when and wherever possible.

“I have played football for a long time; I know what it consists of and I know at times. you want to play every minute of every game…but if I am not going to do that what is the best thing to do? Said Coady.”

“Is it to sulk and mope and go to your room and not speak to anybody and keep your head down? Or is it to try and help everybody around you and help the lads as much as you can.

“And when my time comes, if my time comes, I’ll be ready. But I am enjoying every minute of it. It is important we are all in it for the same thing and that is to win.”

Reserves to start.

There could be a solid argument put forward to start Coady for Southgate’s side; the defender has seriously been that good this season.

He’s transformed the Everton backline alongside James Tarkowski, instilling leadership and a never say die attitude, something England craves right now.

Who’s to say the duo couldn’t star for their national team together? It’s highly unlikely but stranger things have happened in the world of football.

Coady, however, already established in the England setup, deserves his chance to have a stint at starting at the back for Southgate’s side; there’s no better chance than to try him out there in the upcoming fixtures.

He’s been named in 31 England squads, but has only won 10 caps in two years; this should change soon.

These stats prove that the defender is highly-valued by Southgate and his coaches so why not utilize him now he’s in the form of his career?

No one wants to see Harry Maguire’s god-awful form leak its way into the World Cup, that’s a recipe for a group stage departure and a horrific defeat at the hands of the United States National team.

Come on Gareth, do the right thing.
