AC Milan defender Fikayo Tomori admits he feels ‘disappointed’ at the lack of interest from England coach Gareth Southgate, but he hopes he can still win a place at EURO 2024.
Despite playing regularly in Serie A and the Champions League, reaching the semi-finals last season, Tomori still only has four caps for England, never more than once in a calendar year.
“Are you disappointed? Of course,” he told reporters.
“My England career got off to a shaky start. When I was 21 and first called up to the national team, I made a few appearances as a substitute. After the COVID years, I didn’t play much so obviously I wasn’t called up.”
Despite barely playing for Manchester United at the start of this season, Harry Maguire was chosen to replace Tomori, who often wasn’t even on the bench.
A product of Chelsea’s youth academy, Tomori has been in Milan since January 2021, initially on loan and then bought permanently for 32 million euros.
The England centre-back has made 15 appearances this season between Serie A and the Champions League, even scoring a goal in a 3-1 win over Cagliari.
