Kelly’s away, but we have an able deputy

On the latest episode of Liquid Football, Will Perry is joined by ex-Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge, former Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell and, for the first time, ex-Liverpool man Stephen Warnock.

The first topic for discussion is England’s qualification for Euro 2020, and whether Gareth Southgate’s team really have much of a chance to succeed next summer. They also select their preferred XI for the first match of the tournament.

After Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill blamed a missed penalty on Dutch distraction tactics, the panel talk about their own experiences of trying to psyche out the opposition, and reveal that one of the sharpest tongues in football – even when dealing with his own teammates – belonged to Craig Bellamy.

Following Sadio Mane’s gesture in helping a Senegal staff member with water bottles over the weekend, the panel talk about respect in the game and how different it is growing up in football now compared to the 1990s.
