England Euros Squad Odds: Anthony Gordon 7/4 after first senior call-up

Newcastle United's Anthony Gordon is 7/4 to make England's Euros squad after receiving his first senior call-up for the Three Lions' upcoming friendlies against Brazil and Belgium at Wembley.

23-year-old Gordon has enjoyed an impressive season at St James' Park - registering 10 goals and seven assists in all competitions - and the winger will now have the opportunity to impress on the international stage.

A key member of England's victorious Under 21s side at last summer's Euros in Romania and Georgia, Gordon has developed into one of Newcastle's most important players under Eddie Howe this term.

Although England manager Gareth Southgate is blessed with a plethora of gifted forward players from which to choose from, Gordon's numbers this season have made him difficult to ignore, and the Everton academy graduate has now put himself in a strong position to make the final Euros squad.

Signing for Newcastle from Everton for £45m in January 2023, Gordon initially struggled to make an impact on Tyneside - scoring just one Premier League goal in the second half of the 2022/23 season.

Perhaps this was simply a bedding in period for the winger, however, with Gordon having coming alive in his first full season as a Newcastle player this term.

Not only capable of registering goals and assists - with a commendable 14 goal contributions to his name in England's top flight so far in this campaign - Gordon is also an extremely industrious operator who provides a lot of support for his full-back behind him.

This work-rate is something which is bound to have impressed Three Lions manager Southgate, with Gordon's enthusiasm and fresh legs making him an appealing option for England to be able to call upon from the bench in Germany if needed.

Competition for England places is undoubtedly at its fiercest at the top end of the pitch, but should Gordon show up well in the upcoming international friendlies and the remainder of his club season at Newcastle, he could be difficult for Southgate to leave out.
