England’s World Cup debutants go nostalgic with their Twitter pictures
Some went a little further back in time than others.
After Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Russia was announced, those who had never played at the tournament celebrated with pictures from a time when World Cup selection was merely a glint in their eye.
But nobody had Ashley Young beaten for nostalgia, the United player tweeting this 1990’s picture of himself in an old Umbro shirt, complete with shorts and socks.
For some players, like 22-year-old Dele Alli, the old pictures of them playing for England’s youth teams aren’t really that old at all, but must seem a lifetime ago.
And while Leicester defender Harry Maguire didn’t feel like delving too far into the past to find a picture…
… fortunately Sheffield United were on hand to help out.
