Man Utd Double winner Pallister urges Lingard, Greenwood to use Euros snub as motivation

Manchester United Double winner Gary Pallister says the likes of Mason Greenwood and Jesse Lingard can use their England Euros snub as career motivation.

Those cut from Southgate's final list will more-than-likely have the chance to feature again in a major tournament - and Pallister is urging them to prove a point.

Pallister, 55, told The Sun: "It's very difficult for players. There was Gazza who obviously he had that meltdown when Glenn [Hoddle] cut him from the squad.

"It's difficult. But it can only make you stronger.

"You have got to take from that that you haven't made the cut and you want to make sure the next time it comes around you do make the cut.

"You can either use it as a negative or a positive.

"You can sit and wallow in the disappointment of it or you can say 'right I will use this as a gee me up for the next time to get into a squad and I will make sure I'm not left out'.

"It is difficult but it is how you use that event in your life."
