It's highly unlikely he was going to get the call over Hart and Butland anyway. I don't like Everton players going off on international duty at the best of times. Having Southgate in charge of them for the duration fills me with angst. I don't feel Southgate should be in the position that he's in. He's sub standard as a coach as he proved with Middlesborough. Another grey flannel and FA blazer appointment, if I ever saw one.
