On Sky Sports Monday Night Football, the two pundits were asked to pick their England Euro 2021 squads, and there was a lot of debate – shock.
The two former England players have become fan favourites in the punditry world – two players that hated each other on the pitch, and there’s not much more love in the studio.
We’re pretty sure they’re friends really, which will definitely make it easier for them when they have a go at each other. Either way, it’s great to watch, and that’s why football fans have embraced the on-screen rivalry.
After an MNF double-header, Carragher and Neville were asked to discuss their own England Euro 2021 squad…sit back and enjoy!
During some debates, Neville & Carragher are like an old married couple – bickering over the smallest of details, and then talking over one another to try get their points across.
Following their on-pitch battles, from when the Manchester United & Liverpool rivalry was as fierce as ever, the two have now pursued a career as pundits for Sky Sports.
At first, there’s no doubt that there will have been some tension in the studio. Now, the more they’ve worked together, it seems the pair have built a much better relationship, with that friendly rivalry alive and kicking.
Despite their disagreements and squabbles, the two actually agreed on 20 of the 23 available positions in the England setup. It’s surprising, considering they definitely have some different opinions.
Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope, Dean Henderson
Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Tyrone Mings, Luke Shaw, Ben Chilwell
Declan Rice, Jordan Henderson, Kalvin Phillips, Mason Mount, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden
Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Marcus Rashford
Neville chose to take those 20 players, as well as Eric Dier, James Ward-Prowse and Mason Greenwood. On the other side of the discussion, Carragher opted for Connor Coady, Reece James and Jude Bellingham.
Both had their arguments for each of those players making it, and why they should be included in the England squad.
On top of that, there were some notable players who are missing: Jadon Sancho, Jesse Lingard, James Maddison, Bukayo Saka – all of whom will miss out, according to the pundits.
Meanwhile, Gareth Southgate and the England camp will have their sights set on the Euro Championship, and have a few decisions to make regarding the squad. Who will be on the bus/plane?
England have their first group stage match against the team that beat them in the 2018 World Cup semi-final – Croatia. The Three Lions will have revenge on their mind as they play their opening game.
Then, it’s on to a HUGE matchup against Scotland – one that both teams will no doubt be up for. Then, to finish Group D, England will face a Czech Republic side who will be looking to cause an upset.
Will the whole of England be singing “It’s Coming Home” and that actually be the case? Let us know what you think via our Twitter - @Betting_couk!
