It may seem a little extreme but, admittedly, this thought has been on my mind for a year or so now. The boy has pace, real pace, but his final delivery, finishing and general clueless about what to do when given the ball at his feet is both obvious and frustrating
More often than not, it's exceedingly tedious to see him not look up and play a simple ball, but instead, punt the ball 30 yards up the pitch and chase after it. Inevitably the full-back in question usually deals with this effectively, if he's half decent that is.
I'm sure many people will argue his hatrick in Croatia 2 years ago but he hasn't found the net since then for England and his performances for Arsenal have been very questionable this season. I do expect him to make the last 23 for the World Cup this season as it seems as though you can't not pick an English player that plays for Arsenal, considering it's so rare.
Let's stop giving this boy so many chances and leave him at home where he belongs.
