The experienced English journalist – not to be confused with his Sky Sports and talkSPORT namesake – appeared on BBC 5 Live yesterday to preview the game between England and Scotland at Wembley tonight.
He was discussing the attitude of the players to appearing for their national team alongside presenter Mark Pougatch, John Collins and Terry Butcher.
Shockingly, White told how an English player tried to get out of staying with their Euro 2016 camp after being called up and hoped his agent could help.
He didn’t name names, but it’s a bold claim to make and hints at a English squad with some players who aren’t interested in representing their country:
"He phoned his agent to try and get out of it"

Fans will predict who the player is and hope that he’s not involved tonight when Gareth Southgate’s side take on Scotland at Wembley.
