Talisman Jarrod Bowen of West Ham is anticipated to start for England on the left wing when the Three Lions play Belgium in a friendly on Tuesday night at Wembley Stadium.


The Hammers player is having yet another fantastic season at London Stadium, but he only made one appearance for England in their weekend defeat to Brazil, coming off the bench. Bowen has scored eighteen goals and provided seven assists in all competitions this season, but it’s unclear if he’ll be included in the team for this summer’s Euro 2024.


According to The Telegraph, Bowen will start for England tonight under manager Gareth Southgate, and he will play left wing. Ivan Toney of Brentford is anticipated to start as a striker, while Kobbie Mainoo of Manchester United is anticipated to make his debut for his country. Jude Bellingham will once more be used as a number ten.


Although West Ham fans are excited for their star player and will be cheering for him to play for England this summer, they are divided by Southgate’s decision to play Bowen on the other flank. Normally a right winger, the attacker has represented West Ham as a striker this year.


A person on social media said on X: “Would be a typical Southgate and England move, everyone calling for a player to start so they start that player in a different position to where he’s been smashing it for his club.”

“Therefore, they are going to play him out of position and he won’t perform,” Hide Ad Another said. They will therefore use that as justification to keep him off the Euros roster.”


Tonight, Jarrod Bowen is scheduled to make his England debut.


Given the variety of alternatives available to him on the other flank, Southgate may decide to move left-footed Bowen to the left wing. As right wings, Bukayo Saka and Phill Foden are all well-known players and would probably be ranked higher than Bowen. On the left, the opposition is Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford.


“I mean, I hate to back Southgate but it makes sense,” remarked one X user. Why not try to see if he can fill in at the trouble spot on the left since he’s not getting into the team either up front or on the RW? He has a chance to make the Germany squad, at least against Grealish and Rashford.”
