@al_fandango Bamford > Watkins. This is fact.

@sophangelx Am I the only one relieved that Bamford & Ayling aren’t in the squad? My god they deserve it but we could really do without anymore injuries.

@THPFootball Such a solid squad across the board, interesting inclusions such as Stones, Lingard and Watkins. Surprised to see no Bamford considering his stats this season.

@FowadZ23 Bamford’s had a better season than Watkins.

@kkfla737 Really disappointed Bamford didn't get a call up. A lot of English attackers can score goals, but Bamford finds space, links the play, and can score in multiple ways more than just about anyone eligible for England not named Kane.

@Folabii_ No Bamford? Wow.

@Mitchthommoo95 Ollie Watkins over Bamford?? Come on have a word.

@WiIlClay We remain at #SouthgateOut then. Bamford leads the press for the team that presses the most in the entire league. No way Watkins is better at it than him. Southgate with poor decisions across the squad again.

@Jody_TR Watkins over Bamford WOW #SouthgateOut

@JackForster92 Ollie Watkins over Bamford? Watkins; 10 goals - minutes per goal; 253. Bamford; 13 goals - minutes per goal; 182.

@SonOfAnarchy_14 I feel bad for Bamford. Deserved a call up. A Silky, proper and inform striker.

@BrandonHosannah How did Bamford not get a call up???

@LiamBoden_ Watkins getting a call up over Bamford is daylight robbery
