Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has played all three games for England at Euro 2024.

Gallagher came on as a second-half substitute against Serbia and Denmark, before replacing Trent Alexander-Arnold in England’s starting line-up against Slovenia.

Conor Gallagher was hauled off at the break, after a disappointing first-half.

Champions League winner Didi Hamann has warned Conor Gallagher that he may never feature for England again in Euro 2024 after his disappointing performance.

“If you stick to these big players and they clearly don’t perform, I think there’s a case to drop them,” Hamann told RTE.

“I think there’s a case to drop Foden, Bellingham, and Kane.

“As a manager, if you want to get the respect of the whole squad, you have got to go after the big boys. If you go after the small boys, people won’t respect you. 

“I think he’s at a stage now where the public have lost faith in him, the pundits have lost faith in him and England, and the team have lost faith in him as well.

“Some of the substitutions you can’t follow, you don’t know what he’s thinking.

“I think the biggest problem is; they’ve got Foden and Bellingham in the same team. It clearly doesn’t work, but he hasn’t got the bottle to drop either of them.

“I think he’s got to take one of them out, or move Bellingham a bit further back, but he doesn’t want to do this because for some reason he thinks Bellingham has to play in a position behind Kane. 

“If he drops one of the two, that gives him a chance to bring Palmer in, bring Gordon in, bring Eze in, whoever. You’ve got so many players. Jarrod Bowen came on last week and set up the chance for Kane and he doesn’t do it.

“Gallagher isn’t or wasn’t a problem. He’s not the problem of that England team.

“It’s probably too late now. If you go after the lesser players, it doesn’t look good on the manager, and that’s what he’s done in the tournament.

“He’s taken Alexander-Arnold, he’s an easy target. Gallagher comes off at half-time. We probably don’t see Gallagher again for the rest of the tournament.”
