Are England strikers good enough to win us the World Cup again? Who will make Southgate’s squad? He’s already said that only players playing every week will get a look in. Let’s take a look at his striker options!
Certain players are definitely in. Harry Kane’s had a brilliant season and has now scored over 100 goals for Tottenham. Kane has a penchant for getting injured though, so it’s vital that he stays fit for the last few months of the Premier League. He could be a future England captain.
Even with all of the speculation, Carroll didn’t move to Chelsea in the end. Playing time is important and if he gets it at West Ham for the remainder of the season he may get a look in. He is an asset coming from the bench and can cause any defence problems; his height is also a factor, a target man for crosses and set pieces is always going to be a plus as an England striker!
It’s easy to feel sorry for Rashford with Alexis Sanchez coming into the Manchester United squad and taking his spot. Hopefully this will have the right effect on Rashford and spurs him on to fight harder for a forward position at United. His pace on the wing will suit for England and gives Gareth Southgate another option and ultimately choice is what all managers want.

Bidding farewell to a long serving career at Arsenal after 12 years, 108 goals and 3 FA Cup winners medals, Walcott has moved to Everton to reignite his career. Scoring two goals on his debut and using his pace to unlock defences under Sam Allardyce this regular quality game time will improve his chances of being part of Southgate’s team after being dropped last year.
Vardy has stuck it out at Leicester. Rumours of a move have come and gone, can he find form for the remainder of the season? Maybe… After equalising against Manchester City at the Etihad he has become the first player in history to score against all top 6 teams in the same season. Leicester aren’t having the best season, but he has still netted 13 goals not bad going. He can add a lot of value to the England Team this summer.
