James Ward-Prowse: Euros omission is World Cup motivation

Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse revealed that the pain of being omitted from the Euros squad fuels his World Cup motivation. The midfielder has made 10 appearances for England, scoring two goals in the process. He was named in Fareth Southgate’s provisional squad but did not make the final cut. England lost to Italy at Wembley in the Euro 2020 final.

“It was difficult to take. When you are on your holidays in the summer and you are seeing the success the team is having, of course, you are excited for them and pleased for them on one hand, but equally, you are gutted that you are not there enjoying it,” Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse said about the World Cup. “It was kind of trying to find that balance of where I was, but I had to use that as motivation to raise my levels, even more, to make sure I don’t miss out on another one.”

“You are going to have challenges along the way in the sport. You are always going to have good moments and bad moments, and it is enjoying the good moments but equally, it is how you deal with those bad moments,” he added. “It could have gone either way for me, but I think throughout all the challenges and setbacks I have had back in my career, I always revert back to me and what I can do to affect the situation, and that is to get out onto the training pitch and to show people why I should be there.”
