Wharton latest to earn first cap under Southgate

Adam Wharton made an assured debut for England last night in a 3-0 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina and, in the process, the Crystal Palace midfielder became the 64th player to be handed their first cap during the tenure of Gareth Southgate. 

The 19-year-old former Blackburn man impressed at the base of the Three Lions' midfield, as Southgate's side overcame a slow start to comfortably beat Bosnia thanks to a Cole Palmer penalty and further strikes from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harry Kane. 

A look back through the archives, since Southgate took charge back in 2016, shows that the former Three Lions youth coach has promoted a huge number of players into the senior set-up during his time in charge - although Wharton became the first player born in 2004 to earn the honour. 

Although Wharton's no doubt a fledgling performer at international level, there is one player in Southgate's provisional 33-man squad for the Euros even younger than the Palace star - Manchester United prodigy Kobbie Mainoo only born in 2005. 

Check out the stat below for a summary of England players to have been awarded their first cap under Southgate...

As a die-hard fan of Crystal Palace, I couldn't be more proud of Adam Wharton's debut for England last night! Southgate's faith in young talent never fails to amaze me. Grateful for the win and excited for Wharton's future with the Three Lions!
