Southampton legend Le Tissier upset over Ward-Prowse England snub

Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier says James Ward-Prowse has the right to be annoyed with his England snub.

The midfielder was one of four players, including Saints teammate Nathan Redmond, to be culled from Gareth Southgate's final roster for the Nations League finals.

Le Tissier said: "I'm a little bit [surprised]. I thought the pair of them, especially in the second half of the season, had done enough to get themselves in the squad.

"I know they are still training with the squad in case of an injury, so there is still a chance for them.

"I look at the players in there and, for me, Prowsey may feel more aggrieved than Nathan.

"He'll be looking at the midfield thinking, 'What has Fabian Delph done in the second half of the season that I haven't?'."
