England fans are reacting after Gareth Southgate called Tottenham Hotspur's Kieran Trippier into his latest national team squad ahead of Crystal Palace's Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Trippier has spent the best part of two years as Englabd's first-choice at right wing-back, and starred at last summer's World Cup in Russia.

 

But the 28-year-old has struggled for Tottenham this season and was widely tipped to lose his place to Wan-Bissaka, who in contrast has shone for Palace.

Instead, it was Trippier who made the cut, alongside his former Spurs teammate Kyle Walker and Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold in Southgate's 25-man selection.

Wan Bissaka made his debut for England's Under-21s late last year but is still awaiting his first senior cap.

The Crystal Palace academy product has been linked with a £40 million summer move to clubs including Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham's top-four rivals, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.
