James Tarkowski earned his first cap for England over the international break as the Three Lions get set to compile the squad that will compete in Russia this summer for World Cup 2018.
It has been quite the season for Tarkowski. Seeing limited action last season in the shadow of Michael Keane, he was tasked to take Keane's spot this season while Burnley refrained from shopping for another center back to compete. It proved a master stroke as the Clarets cashed in on Keane and their defense has remained as strong as ever with Tarkowski partnering Ben Mee. His cap was also welcome news for his former club Brentford, who are rewarded with a half a million pounds from Burnley as part of a clause in his transfer. Tarkowski certainly has a shot at going to Russia, especially if Gareth Southgate is committed to a three-man back line. To be fair though, he committed a foul in his appearance against Italy that rewarded the Azzurri a penalty. Mar 30 - 4:39 AM
