Crystal Palace fans were surely fuming when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was denied a call-up to the England first team this month but Three Lions legend Gary Lineker has only gone and rubbed salt into the wound by excluding the young right-back from his list of upcoming talents.
The former Leicester and Barcelona forward found room for Jack Clarke, Mason Greenwood and Reiss Nelson, but Wan-Bissaka’s name was nowhere to be seen as he waxed lyrical about the both the current and next crop of England stars.
The defender has been in sensational form this campaign and is often the redeeming quality when the Eagles aren’t performing – see losses to Brighton and Watford – but he inexplicably continues to miss out on international recognition.
Which player with “no potential” has just been named Crystal Palace’s worst ever January signing? Find out in the video below…
His exclusion from Lineker’s list will surely be like water off a duck’s back for Wan-Bissaka when the only sequence of names that matters is the one announced by Gareth Southgate whenever we have a break from club competition. It’s surely only a matter of time before the 21-year-old sees his name among the stars, though.
Here’s what the Selhurst Park faithful had to say to BBC pundit Lineker on Twitter…
Funny because Wan-Bissaka is currently better than every single player on that list other than Sterling and Kane and he wasn’t even mentioned cos he plays for Palace

Just because Crystal Palace beat Leicester every time they play eachother doesn’t mean you can’t give Aaron Wan-Bissaka credit.
