Foxes in the World Cup, who are on the way to Russia
DATE: 16.11.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK
Schmeichel and Denmark parked Ireland totally and qualified in style
for the World Cup. Schmeichel was the last of a number of
Leicester City players to be part of a national team going through
England booked their World
Cup ticket early and had two friendlies played this week, with Harry
Maguire and Jamie Vardy both taking part. The friendly games at
Wembley against Brazil and Germany ended 0-0.
Magurie and Vardy were in the starting line up in both games. Among
other City players in contention, Demarai Gray could be in the squad
if he starts to perform regularly as he did against Everton, then
Southgate most certainly will consider the U.21 international.
Shinji Okazaki looks certain to make the trip to Russia, being
involved in all games for Japan and with his reputation and
experience, he will not be overlooked.
Nigeria is qualfied and all three from the
City squad, Ahmed Musa, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho looks
certain to be included, despite only Ndidi as a regular starter for
Adrien Silva will when he gets the green light to play for
Leicester, be a contender for a place in the Portugal squad.
Switzerland are through but it looks unlikely that Eldin Jakupovic
will be included. Benalouane and Mendy who both represents France
are certain not to be included.
Bartoz Kapustka could be included in the Polish
squad. He played in the 2016 Euro's. Kapustka is on loan at Freiburg
but has not played much for the German team, and without any first
team games he will be in the shadows, and probably not making the
trip to Russia.
Ulloa will not be in the Argentina squad, that is ceratain, and
players such as Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez will also miss out,
since Algeria never managed to qualify.
We wish all of those travelling a great World Cup and hopefully they
will all come back with great memories.
Muzzy Izzet and Gordon Banks both experienced the thrill, as
Leicester City players, to win medals at the World Cup. Banks winner
with England in 1966, Izzet third place with Turkey in 2002.
