Fikayo Tomori has been omitted from the England squad for tonight’s game with Germany, leading to thousands of reactions on social media, including Milan fans thanking the Three Lions’ coach Gareth Southgate.

The Rossoneri centre-back will return to his club without having played a minute for his country during the international break.

He was not involved in England’s 1-0 loss over Italy on Friday and has been left out of the squad for tonight’s game with Germany, with the Three Lions already relegated from their Nations League group.

Tomori played a key role in Milan’s title-winning campaign last season as he was one of the best centre-backs in the league, making it into the Serie A Ideal XI for 2021-22 along with Gleison Bremer, Serie A’s best defender last term.

His omission from the England squad has caused plenty of reactions on social media. English fans and pundits ask themselves why the product of Chelsea academy is not getting regular playing time with his country despite his convincing performances at a club level.

On the other hand, Milan fans seem happy to see that Tomori will return to Milan entirely rested, having lost several of their players to injuries during the break, including their goalkeeper Mike Maignan and veteran defender Simon Kjaer.

  1. It’s a disgrace. Southgate giving it large about picking players on form then persists with Slab Head🤦🏻.

  2. Tomori hasn’t been at his best this season, and I’m sure the England setup would’ve paid attention to the goals Milan have conceded this season. Maybe this will reinvigorate Tomori and fill him with more hunger to return to his best. Yes, I’d have still picked him ahead of Maguire, Dier and co, but that isn’t exactly a high bar.

  3. ACE.

    Tomori was born in Canada and unlike the ‘flimsy eagles’, they have actually qualified for the World Cup. If he’s going to switch, he will switch to Canada so he can play with Davies and co.
