Ian Wright has said on ITV (9:53pm, September 2, 2021) that he thought that Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford would get some minutes for England last night.
Bamford is part of the England squad for their 2022 World Cup qualifiers this month.
The Leeds striker did not feature for the Three Lions in their 4-0 win against Hungary last night.
The Euro 2020 finalists are back in action on Sunday when they take on Andorra.
Former Arsenal and England international striker Wright has said that he thought that Three Lions head coach Gareth Southgate would bring Bamford on as a substitute last night.
The ITV pundit has added that he would love to see the 27-year-old Leeds striker play against Andorra.
Wright said on ITV (9:53pm, September 2, 2021): “I would love to see Patrick Bamford. The season he did have he was very unfortunate not to get in there.
“It was out of him and Calvert-Lewin, and obviously Gareth has been looking at him and called him.
“It would be a perfect game to play him in. I thought he might have got a couple of minutes tonight.”
Patrick Bamford debut against Andorra?
England are likely to win big against Andorra, and head coach Southgate could make changes in the second half.
Of course, Southgate would not change his starting lineup a lot against Andorra, but if everything goes well, then he could bring on players such as Bamford in the second half.
The 27-year-old was unlucky not to get the call-up to the England squad for the Euro 2020 finals after scoring 17 goals and providing seven assists in the Premier League last season.
