Liverpool midfielder set for major decision this summer after Euro 2016

Liverpool midfielder James Milner will consider his international future after Euro 2016, report the Daily Telegraph.

The 30-year old has been a constant member of Roy Hodgson’s squads since his arrival as manager and has 37 caps to his name after making his debut in August 2009.

However, he has conceded a decision in regards to his continuation at national level must be made in the near future, but not until after Euro 2016 this summer.

‘If I am going to take on a lesser role it is probably better for someone else to step up’, stated the former Manchester City man.

‘I don’t want to be travelling around and not really contributing and being a good tourist.’

‘I want to contribute and if the manager sees I have a part to play then great and if not it is better for me to step aside and let younger guys travel around.’

Milner is vastly experienced with the Three Lions, having played in four major tournaments in a number of different positions.

Still, the emergence of a nucleus of talented young players has put a spring back into English football, meaning competition for places has become even more intense.
