Leeds fans furious at Gareth Southgate's England squad after Patrick Bamford snub


    Leeds fans have been left disheartened and angry at Gareth Southgate’s decision not to include Patrick Bamford in his England squad for the European Championships. The Three Lions boss has named his provisional 33-man roster for the tournament and there are still seven players to be cut before June 1.

    Bamford has missed out on the squad despite scoring 17 Premier League goals for Leeds this season.

    Danny Ings was also left at home after a mixed campaign that started so promisingly with Southampton.

    Ollie Watkins was included though and will now be looking to keep his place by impressing at St George’s Park.

    Mason Greenwood is also back in the squad and he will be looking to improve on his impressive form at club level.

    A second added: “Watkins and Calvert-Lewin but no Bamford / Harrison?? Joke, even Everton fans have said DCL has been poor for the last 6 months.”

    While another wrote: “Paddy’s been shafted, absolute joke. Should’ve been the second striker on the list.”

    “Bamford should have got in! When you look at strikers several taken over him are inferior. His all-round contribution to the team merited selection,” said another.

    Southgate name-checked Bamford and paid tribute to his performances when leaving him out of his previous squad in March.

    After that, Bamford then went five Premier League games without scoring before finishing the campaign strongly with three in four.

    As well as scoring 17, the former Chelsea man also provided seven assists for his team-mates.

    Yet it wasn’t to be for Bamford, barring any late dramatic changes and he will instead have the summer off to recover before going again next season.
