Mason Greenwood’s two goals in two games in the Premier League was not enough to earn him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad.

The Manchester United forward scored against both Leeds and Southampton this season and was expected to earn an invitation to the England senior squad for the first time since 2020 when he was sent home after breaking covid rules in Iceland.

The striker has been excellent so far this season with two goals in two games, but Southgate has instead opted to hand Leeds striker Patrick Bamford his first call-up to the squad following good form last season.

United fans acted with shock at the 19 year old’s omission from the squad, with many believing that he is still being punished for the Iceland incident by Southgate although the manager has rubbished that reasoning.

Greenwood’s United teammates Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Jadon Sancho have all been included in the squad but fans aren’t happy that Greenwood won’t be in action for the Three Lions during this next break.

England will travel to face Hungary on Thursday, September 2 before returning to Wembley to welcome Andorra on Sunday, September 5. Their final match of the international break will be another away game, against Poland, on Wednesday, September 8.

Manchester United will take on Wolves in the final Premier League game before the break, before welcoming Newcastle to Old Trafford after the England internationals.
