However, the shock announcement has not gone down well with the English fans as they took to Twitter to vent out their frustrations.

Senior right-back Johnson is yet to clinch a single win this season with Stoke, but has found a place in Southgate’s England squad. Johnson comes in as a replacement for Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne.

And now fans have taken to twitter and strongly oppose the decision to pick Johnson. However, it is believed that Tottenham star defender Kyle Walker would get the start in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia.
