Ally McCoist reckons Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be in the England squad for this summer’s European Championships.
The 23-year-old has not yet represented England, receiving just one call up in August 2019 but pulling out due to a back injury, but he also played for DR Congo at youth level.
However, former Scottish footballer McCoist believes that the United right-back should be part of Gareth Southgate’s squad this summer.
He told TalkSPORT: “The one I’d be taking is Wan-Bissaka. If England draw France, who do you want on that right-hand side against Mbappe?
“The first job of a defender is to defend. England have got enough players in forward areas.”
👀 “I’ll tell you now, the one player I would be taking is Wan-Bissaka.”

I couldn’t agree more with McCoist, but I selfishly enjoy when England underappreciate United players. They did it with Paul Scholes and Michael Carrick, too.
Wan-Bissaka starts tonight’s game against Granada in the Europa League quarter-finals.
Southgate should consider players who have had long cup runs this season, as it’s valuable experience to have at an international tournament.
There’s not a better tackling full-back in the Premier League.
