England Veteran Pair Step Aside For Youth

The 31 year old Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and 32 year old Chelsea defender Gary Cahill have withdrawn from England selection for now, to allow England manager Gareth Southgate to look to younger players. Vardy told the Guardian: "This has been on my mind for a while. I'm not getting any younger and you can see, to be fair to the gaffer, he wants to make it more youthful, which obviously had its benefits during the World Cup. Gareth said that he felt I still had a lot to offer, and we've not shut the door completely. If the worst came to happen and everyone was injured, then obviously I wouldn't say no." Cahill had similar comments for Chelsea TV: "I can see it is now going to a younger generation and I think it is the perfect time for me to take a step back. I've been hugely honoured to play for my country and I would never shut the door. I've said that if there are injuries in the future and I'm needed to come and play then, of course, I'm available."
