🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🦁 Burnley's James Tarkowski on feeling overlooked by Gareth Southgate

England international ​James Tarkowski has expressed his dismay at being left out the Three Lions squad ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria according to Sports Mole.

Tarkowski who is also part Polish last featured for England against Switzerland in September 2018 due to persistent hernia problems which saw him struggle with his team Burnley.

"I am disappointed. I want to be involved. I feel like I'm playing really well, I'm at full fitness levels, playing every minute possible in games and I feel like I'm performing the best I have done for Burnley," Tarkowski said.

"But it's the England manager's decision to pick the players he feels suits his system so I'm not going to cry about it and get all upset. I'm just going to crack on with my game and enjoy myself when I'm playing."

England manager Gareth Southgate has handed call-ups to Joe Gomez, Michael Keane, Harry Maguire, Tyrone Mings and rising Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori for the two Euro 2020 qualifiers.

"I'm happy with my performances and that's all I can do. I'm a footballer and I want to play football, whether that's being a part of the squad for England, starting for England or playing for Burnley," he continued.

"I'm desperate to be back involved in the England squad but for now I'm happy in the Burnley one. We're performing well as a team and I want to improve on my own performances.

"I'm not going to starting whinging about not being involved, it's the manager's job to pick the players. He's decided that he doesn't want me in the squad so that's fair enough."
