‘First of many!’ – Arsenal fans love what England boss Gareth Southgate has done

Gareth Southgate’s England team selection for this evening’s international fixture against Wales has got a number of Arsenal fans talking.

The Three Lions go into the game hoping to repeat the 2-1 win when the two teams last met in the group stage at Euro 2016.

And it’s the national team’s first outing at Wembley since thrashing Montenegro 7-0 last November as the latest edition of the European Championships – scheduled for this summer – was pushed back to next year.

Conor Coady, Joe Gomez, and Michael Keane make up the back three, with Kieran Trippier and Bukayo Saka operating at wing-back on either side.

That means a senior debut for the Gunners wonderkid.

In midfield, Kalvin Phillips is in the engine room alongside Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Winks.

The attacking trio is very exciting with the in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin also getting his debut alongside Jack Grealish and Danny Ings.
