Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney has said that he hopes to play against team-mate Scott Sinclair, when Scotland face off against England on June 10th.
For the second straight season, Tierney has won the PFA Young Player of the Year award In Scotland. Sinclair also had had a tremendous season, winning the Player of the year award in the Scottish League.
Tierney said off his team-mate, “I think he does deserve a call-up,” said the 19-year-old. “I think a winger is one of the hardest positions to have consistency and he’s shown it. The amount of goals he scores and the amount he creates is incredible.”
Though Sinclair has been on fine form, it would be surprising should he receive a call-up to the England national team by Gareth Southgate. The English national team have historically had a reluctance to call up players who play in leagues which are not considered “elite” and it is unlikely that that will change anytime soon.
