Jamie Carragher Believes William Saliba Would Be England’s Best Centre-Back at Euro 2024



Jamie Carragher has made a bold assertion about William Saliba, suggesting that the Arsenal defender would be the best center-back in England’s squad if he were eligible to represent the Three Lions at Euro 2024.

Saliba, 23, has showcased exceptional talent for Arsenal over the past two seasons following a successful loan spell with Marseille in France. Despite not being a regular starter for France, Carragher believes Saliba’s form would merit a starting position for England.

The defender’s stellar performances earned him a spot in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year for the 2022/23 season. Additionally, he played every minute of Arsenal’s 2023/24 campaign, contributing significantly to their defensive solidity.

However, despite his impressive form, Saliba remains behind other French defenders in the national team pecking order. Carragher emphasized Saliba’s potential impact on the England squad, particularly in facing formidable opponents like Mbappe and Griezmann.

Gareth Southgate’s decision to omit Harry Maguire from the Euros squad has raised concerns about England’s defensive capabilities. Carragher highlighted Saliba’s prowess and suggested he could provide the defensive solidity needed against top-class opposition.

Saliba’s confidence in his abilities is evident, as he recently claimed to be among the top three defenders in the Premier League. With a strong work ethic and improved concentration, Saliba aims to elevate his game even further, showcasing his commitment to continuous improvement.
