England manager Gareth Southgate failed to get the best out of his players at the World Cup 2022, according to Jamie Redknapp. The former Liverpool star says that England should have certainly progressed beyond the quarter-finals given the talent at their disposal. Gareth Southgate has been in charge of the national team since 2016.

Since then, England have had several ups and downs that have not really impressed a lot of the pundits. Crucially, Jamie Redknapp is not happy with the record that England have achieved under circuit especially when it comes to the World Cup.

With the group matches coming to a close it is expected that England will land at a top position. Indeed, there is much that is banking on the Three Lions. The previous championships, namely Euro 2020 and World Cup 2018 have shown that England has been taking several steps to move up in the final rounds of these matches, namely the semi-finals or as runner-ups.

Here are the top players of the Group B matches that England needs to look out for:
• Gareth Bale
This player is an obvious choice. Though he is past his prime this superstar from Los Angeles FC can turn games in favor for Wales, especially when England is up against teams like Wales.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Arsenal failed in an attempt to sign Leandro Paredes in a late move, as the 28-year-old Argentine midfielder remains keen on joining Juventus. The Paris Saint-Germain ace had already committed to signing for the Italian giants and wants to hold his word up.

Arsenal have a big problem as the summer transfer window edges towards its conclusion, as they seek a new midfielder before the deadline. The Gunners, having already lost Thomas Partey to a recurring thigh injury just a day before the Fulham clash, have also revealed Mohamed Elneny will be sidelined for a considerable period.

Newcastle United-bound striker Alexander Isak was a previous transfer target at Aston Villa, BirminghamLive can reveal. The Swedish international, who’ll wrap up a £59 million move to St James’ Park later, was on Villa’s radar last summer as Johan Lange began to draw up a shortlist of attacking signings to replace Jack Grealish who left for Man City. The 22-year-old had just rattled home 17 goals in 34 La Liga matches for Real Sociedad but, that summer, signed a new five-year deal amid strong interest from Premier League and European clubs.

A source close to Villa said Lange’s a massive fan of Isak and watched him over and over. In the end, Sociedad did well to tie him to a new deal and Villa, under Dean (Smith) at the time, opted to go and push ahead by bringing in Leon Bailey and Ings. Emi Buendia was already at the club by then and the plan was for Emi and Jack to play off Watkins in attack but, obviously, Jack moved to City. Villa moved quickly to add quality in attacking areas knowing they’d miss Jack’s creativity. I don’t think Villa pushed too hard for Isak but he was certainly spoken about at that time given his versatility to play anywhere across the front three.

According to Sascha Tavolieri on Twitter, West Ham United have been dealt a major boost in their pursuit of 29-year-old Club Brugge midfielder Hans Vanaken in the 2022 summer transfer window. West Ham United have made some astute moves this summer but could do with a few more as they look to build upon the recent successes. One position that needs an addition is in attacking midfield, where the Hammers lack a reliable option.

Pablo Fornals and Manuel Lanzini have had their moments for the Hammers but are far from consistent performers. Signing Hans Vanaken will address that issue for West Ham and give David Moyes an experienced player who can slot straight into the playing XI.

Five-time European champions Barcelona have failed to win a preseason friendly game for the first time this summer after they were forced to a 2-2 draw by Juventus. The two teams are presently on tour of the US (United States) and they faced off with each other on Tuesday night with the game ending in a four-goal thriller.

Frenchman Ousmane Dembele was the star of the show after he scored two superb goals in the first half though former Everton FC of England striker Moise Kean was able to match him in terms of goals after he scored a brace either side of the half-time break. Italian international Kean scored an equaliser for the Old Lady in the first half after Dembele had given Barcelona the lead. Dembele then scored again in the first half to ensure that his team went into the break with a 2-1 lead. Kean then scored the only goal in the second half to ensure that the game ended in a draw.

Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling is set to make a decision on his future at the club amidst the transfer rumours of a move to Premier League rivals Chelsea. According to the report from the Manchester Evening News (MEN), England international Sterling has been told to make a decision on his future by City officials. The expectation on the part of City officials is that the England player will make a decision on his future.


Sterling, 27, has a year left on his current deal at Manchester City and he needs guarantees over a regular playing time to commit his long-term future to the club. However, there are no guarantees from manager Pep Guardiola who has a star-studded squad at his disposal. Guardiola and City won't block Sterling if the England international decides to leave the club. City will prefer to sell him for a transfer fee rather than let him leave on a free transfer next summer when his contract is up.
