“Why isn’t Joe Hart England No. 1?” – Man Utd legend...

The legendary shot-stopper who spent time on either side of a rift in Manchester believes David Seaman was the Three Lions’ last reliable option

According to Peter Schmeichel, England has not had an established number 1 since David Seaman. The legendary Dane has wondered why Joe Hart fell into the abyss as the current hopefuls struggle to make serious claims for a long-term role.

Jordan Pickford is currently the first choice for Gareth Southgate. However, he has seen questions about his reliability at Everton and a number of rivals down the neck.

Nick Pope begins a 2020-21 test start with Burnley, while Dean Henderson will replace David de Gea on his return to Manchester United.

Schmeichel believes that a nation of English stature should have an obvious choice to be their last line of defense, with the fingers on their goalkeeping crop for some time.

Hart was a mainstay on the team for a while, as was David James before him, but they both saw costly mistakes that led to criticism being directed in their direction – to the point that they eventually fell out of favor.

Having spent time with Manchester rivals United and City during his legendary career, Schmeichel believes England has ceased to be a solid option between the sticks since the turn of the century when the great Arsenal sailor was on the rise towards the end of his international career would have.

“You are talking about three goalkeepers: one [Pickford] played for England for three years and made mistakes in the Premier League – those are your words – one [Henderson] doesn’t play at all, played for Sheffield United last season you know; and the other [Pope] plays for Burnley, who is at the bottom of the Premier League, ”said Schmeichel, who played 129 caps for Denmark and will face England in the UEFA Nations League on Wednesday The times.

When asked which of the options Southgate would have available, Schmeichel added, “When was the last time England had a No. 1?

“Joe Hart is still playing. Why isn’t he # 1? Hart is only 33 years old. It is likely in its prime.

“For me the question would probably be answered with David Seaman. He’s probably the last number 1 you had. ”

While Hart is still playing, he is now Hugo Lloris’ deputy in Tottenham and has only made 26 appearances since summer 2018.
