Conor Coady sends message to Tyrone Mings after England training

Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady is in line to start for England tonight.

The 28-year-old is expected to be one of several changes to the team tonight, as the Three Lions take on Andorra in their next World Cup qualifier.

Earlier this week, England won 4-0 against Hungary in Budapest.

Coady has five caps for England to date, and tonight would be his fourth competitive outing.

He previously played the World Cup qualifier against San Marino back in March, and also twice against Denmark in the UEFA Nations League last year.

His last appearance for his country came just before Euro 2020 against Austria in a friendly.

Since becoming involved with the senior side, Coady hasn’t actually featured in front of fans.

But his patience will be rewarded tonight at Wembley, and he said ahead of the game (via Daily Mail): “It’s not ‘only Andorra’ to me. It is a big game. It is a huge moment for me to represent England.”

Coady yesterday took to Instagram to share a picture to his Story.

It was an image of himself and Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings in training, along with the caption ‘Trying to get the big man to move in the boxes’.

Coady and Mings are known to be quite close, and one wonders if they’ll be lining up alongside one another for tonight’s game.

Mings, of course, filled in for Harry Maguire at Euro 2020 for the first two games. He performed well, with England keeping two clean sheets.
