Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady has said that he is not concerned by the latest snub for the England national side, given he is competing with players, who had reached the World Cup semi-final last summer. The centre-back has been influential towards Wolves’ success in the past 21 months and this recently earned him a new long-term contract with the club.
Speaking to Talk SPORT, Coady stressed that he had not thought about the prospect of making the Three Lions squad, considering the competition from the players, who helped the country reach the semi-final stage of the previous World Cup, he said: “I thought to myself all season that I’m trying to get into a squad that just reached a World Cup semi-final. They’re a really good squad. England is the pinnacle of any Englishman’s career. I’ve not really thought about it all year, to be honest. If it comes, it’ll be amazing, but I don’t overthink it because it’ll become a little bit of a problem.”
