It has certainly been a tough 12 months for current England number one Joe Hart. The Manchester City goalkeeper was sent out on loan to Serie A club Torino after being deemed surplus to requirements by new manager Pep Guardiola.

It was though the perfect stage to show clubs in England what Manchester City have been missing when it came to the Scotland vs England World Cup qualifier.

Joe Hart was hammered on social media after he conceded two free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths in the space of a few minutes. His positioning was what was questioned.

It seems that Hart has also forgot the pass-back rule as well which could have gone a lot worse for him.

England legend Terry Butcher had his say on the situation: “There is a case, and a very strong case, to give Jack Butland a chance now because he was in pole position before he got injured.”

Who is going to replace him though? It seems that, that is most likely to be Jack Butland who up until his injury did seem to be in a good position to be the England number one. Who could perhaps question the amount of playing time he has had given he only came back to the Stoke squad towards the end of the season.

Southgate has shown when it comes to making tough decisions that he is not afraid to do so. Wayne Rooney, the then captain was dropped by the England manager despite the impact and influence Rooney has.
