and he still never made the England squad to go to the European Championships. They opted to call up Danny Sturidge who played around the same and scored only 6 goals.

Gillett didn't make the England Squad for the World Cup 2 years earlier...

Apparently he wasn't needed even though he was the most prolific English striker at the time, had 3 goals in his 2 starts for England and was England's best young prospect.

They instead opted to go for Andy Poole... A very average striker who doesn't score a lot or set up goals...

The best part was that England's biggest problem in the tournament was a "lack of goals!"

Some poetic justice for Jay lol. England went out in the group stages only scoring 2 goals. The manager didnt get the sack aswell. In real life if he left the FW player of the year and european golden boot winner out of his squad and they did that bad there would be a national outcry in England.
