The Spurs man was one of the best performing left-backs in the league last season, but his progress is yet to be recognised by Roy Hodgson.
The England manager, and many besides him, seem to be viewing Rose through a lens several years old and it appears he is still being overlooked for his erratic displays of a couple of seasons ago.
Rose’s progress has been tremendous, and clear to see for anyone who has watched Spurs over the last 18 months.
The 25-year old has improved his defensive approach immeasurably and learnt to maintain a consistent threat going forward, too.
His pace and power make it difficult for any would-be attacker to get the better of him and while he is guilty of the odd positional mistake, his pace usually enables him to recover.
Injuries have hampered his start to the current campaign and he has managed just four appearances so far - making Hodgson’s decision to leave him out easier to justify.
With Luke Shaw out for the long-term, England’s left-back spot is well and truly up for grabs and Rose should be among the first in line to step in.
His prospects with England look none too promising while Hodgson is at the helm, however, and he may now be ruing his decision to opt for the Three Lions over Jamaica
