According to BBC Sport, Gareth Southgate has urged Newcastle star Anthony Gordon to think about his international decision, and to “think a little bit further ahead with the opportunities that could come up”.
This comes from reports that Scotland want Gordon to change his allegiance to play for them instead of the Three Lions.
Southgate has said that the chance of Gordon getting an opportunity with the England senior team is “imminently possible”, and he just needs to look ahead to that.
Gordon was part of the England Under-21 side that won the UEFA European Under-21 Championship in 2023, also being named in the Team of the Tournament.
