Sean Dyche believes in-form Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is not the only one in his squad playing well enough to be considered for England selection. The 28-year-old is in the running for the Premier League’s Golden Glove award after keeping 14 clean sheets this campaign, further enhancing his prospects of becoming a future England number one. Dyche insists that Pope deserves the plaudits he has been receiving but thinks his team-mates James Tarkowski and Dwight McNeil have also done enough to be in England boss Gareth Southgate’s thoughts.
Sean Dyche said “I’ve always said I’ve never got in the way of Gareth’s choosing of the side. I get on well with Gareth when I speak to him. Would I offer the obvious that he (Pope) is playing very well? Yes. I think James Tarkowski as well is playing very well, amongst others – Dwight. Dwight’s getting towards a full season in the Premier League at 20 years old. After playing half a season last season he’s hardly missed a minute, to be fair to the lad. So there are three I’d certainly offer are playing well enough to be considered. Obviously Pope’s got some accolades and rightly so. Some by just doing the basics very well, which he did against Sheffield United, and then some making really big saves like he did against Liverpool/
