Barkley not happy to take away Hudson-Odoi’s goal

Ross Barkley confirmed he would feel guilty if he is credited with a goal that should have stood for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The former Everton midfielder bagged a brace in the Three Lions 5-1 thumping of Montenegro in Podgorica, which was marred by racist abuse.

Southgate’s men rallied from a goal down to secure the win, thanks to Keane who equalised before Barkley then turned home from close range a shot from Chelsea team-mate Hudson-Odoi.

But Barkley revealed it was not his aim to steal Hudson-Odoi’s show on what was his first start for his country.

“I haven’t seen the goal back and I’m not sure if it was going in,” he told beIN Sports.

“If it was going in I will be disappointed because I know how gutted he will be, he thrives off the scoring and assisting.

“But he is really happy with the performance and I’m happy he got a start because the sky is the limit for him.

Kieran Trippier played well in his first La Liga game for Atletico Madrid, adding an assist to go with the performance. Former Burnley and Tottenham...

“He is a great lad and really mature for his age and he is going to keep developing, we have a real player there.”

Barkley later scored the second goal to increase England’s lead and went on to praise the collective performance of the team, in difficult moments.
