The global health panic has wreaked havoc on the world of sport. From horse racing to the Six Nations to the Premier League, events have been postponed and cancelled left, right and centre. The latest announcement has been that Euro 2020 will now be Euro 2021, the announcement gives Curtis Jones an outside chance of making the England squad.
The virus, which we shall not name because we are just too tired of it to give it airtime, has led to sporting events being cancelled and postponed worldwide.
The UK government has taken the decision to advise against mass gatherings in order to prevent the spread of the disease and to protect their mates in the insurance industry from having to payout because the government hasn’t ordered against these gatherings. Nothing new to see here.
With the future of domestic leagues around Europe up in the air, Sky Sports today reported that UEFA has postponed Euro 2020, making it Euro 2021.
The suspension of the tournament could be great news for one Liverpool player in particular: Curtis Jones.
With the Scouser having made intermittent first team appearances this season, consistently impressing when given the chance, he may be afforded more game time in the 2020/21 campaign.
If he takes his chances early on he could establish himself in the first team or at least as a more frequent rotation option.
With his performance against Everton in the FA Cup showing that he is more than capable of competing at the Premier League level, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more of him next season.
Some impressive displays during the next campaign could give the Scouser an outside shout of making the Euro 2021 squad – though it would be a long shot, his last long shot went into the top corner and won us the derby.
