Many a viewer of England’s meeting with Italy on Saturday night have taken to social media, to send a message to Gareth Southgate over the place of Aaron Ramsdale.
The Three Lions, of course, are currently locked in action.
After snatching a potentially crucial point from Germany courtesy of a late Harry Kane spot-kick in midweek, England welcomed Italy to Molineux, for the respective countries’ 3rd Nations League Group C outing.
As things stand in Wolverhampton, the scoreline remains goalless, albeit with both sides having come close on more than one occasion.
The busier of the two goalkeepers, though, without question, has been the hosts’ Aaron Ramsdale.
Introduced to the English starting XI in place of long-time no.1 Jordan Pickford, Ramsdale was responsible for a whole host of impressive saves late in the first-half on Saturday, with one in particular, to keep out what looked a certain Sandro Tonali goal, having drawn widespread praise:

‘Has to be number 1’
In fact, so impressive has Ramsdale looked against Italy, that many of an England persuasion have since taken to social media, to go as far as to call for the Arsenal standout to be afforded no.1 status for the Three Lions moving forward.
Check out just some of the reaction from across Twitter below:

How many times.. Ramsdale > Pickford

Surely there’s no debate that Ramsdale should be England’s No 1🤔

He ain’t perfect but Ramsdale is by far the better keeper in comparison to Pickford.

If you think Pickford should start over Ramsdale seek medical attention immediately!!!
Far from the finished package but he’s easily better than Pickford 🤷♂️

Superb save from Ramsdale to deny tonali. Has to be England’s number 1 in Qatar surely

I don’t like him one bit, but Ramsdale is better than Pickford.
And I’d find it difficult not to use TAA
