Furious Southampton fans took to Twitter to fume about the non-selection of midfielder James Ward-Prowse for England’s UEFA 2020 European Championship qualifier away at Montenegro.
The Saints man remained on the Three Lions’ bench in Podgorica, just like he did last Friday evening when Gareth Southgate’s men welcomed the Czech Republic to Wembley Stadium.
Ward-Prowse was forced to watch most of the evening’s action from the sidelines, only getting on the pitch for the final eight minutes of the 5-1 win as he replaced Ross Barkley.
A large group of Southampton supporters strongly believe the in-form 24-year-old should have made the starting Xl for the game and it’s hard to disagree with them when you consider his six goals in his last nine Premier League matches.
One simply commented sarcastically “shock,” whilst others suggested some kind of feud between the player and Southgate as the reason for his non-selection and showed disgust at Declan Rice being selected ahead of him.

Prowsey is only there to make up the numbers? I don’t like Southgate anymore?
