Ian Wright picks Anthony Gordon over Cole Palmer for the Euro Cup 2024

We are only a few months away from the 2024 Euro Cup. Nations like Spain, Germany, Portugal, and England are favorites to win the titles. Among them, England has a perfect squad with in-form players. They have players like Jude Bellingham, Cole Palmer, Anthony Gordon, and many more who can turn the game towards their side single-handedly. Before that, legendary footballer Ian Wright released a controversial statement on the team selection options.

Ian Wright said:

“I would choose Anthony Gordon over Cole Palmer for England in the Euro Cup 2024.”

Both youngsters have performed impressively this season. They are one of the top performers for their club and should represent England’s football team in the Euro Cup 2024.

Can Anthony Gordon make it into England’s Euro Cup 2024 squad?

As mentioned, England has a perfect squad with a strong bench. From attack to defense, their options are top-notch, and they have the potential to win games single-handedly. Due to their star-studded unit, many players are left out of the squad, and Anthony Gordon is one of them.

Undoubtedly, he is a star and deserves a place in the squad. But the chances of him making a place in the squad are quite low.

Gordon has been phenomenal for Newcastle United this season. He is one of their top performers and has shown improvement. He has made good contributions, with ten goals and seven assists this season.

But if we compare his performances to those of other strikers on the team, they have the upper hand. Moreover, if Gordon makes his place in the squad, his possibility of playing is too low.

Should Gordon be selected for England’s Euro Cup 2024 squad? Let us know your views in the comment section.
