Gareth Southgate on Ben Chilwell: “He is playing as a wing-back so there is some adaptation for him if we are playing with a four. It is a different role, defensively, in particular. But he is ready and physically, he is in really good shape. He has had a couple of setbacks but he is a good athlete and I think that would have helped his recovery, definitely.”
