CLARETS pair Nick Pope and James Tarkowski must wait for their international chance after both remained on the bench for England’s 1-0 friendly win against Holland.

The duo became the fourth and fifth players to be called up by the Three Lions while playing for Sean Dyche’s Burnley following in the footsteps of Michael Keane, Tom Heaton and Jack Cork.

But while those three all made their England debuts, goalkeeper Pope and centre back Tarkowski did not feature for Gareth Southgate’s side.

The Turf Moor duo will hope to earn international recognition on Tuesday night when the Three Lions entertain Italy in a Wembley friendly as they bid to force their way into World Cup reckoning.

Southgate had already stated his intention to start with Everton’s Jordan Pickford in goal ahead of the game in Amsterdam with Pope among the substitutes.

Tarkowski was also overlooked for a starting spot with Kyle Walker chosen to play out of position at centre back along with John Stones and Joe Gomez as England went with a back three. The latter lasted just a matter of minutes before picking up an injury but it was Leicester City’s Harry Maguire who came on as Tarkowski remained on the bench.

Maguire, who had played 120 minutes at the weekend for his club Leicester City in their FA Cup defeat to Chelsea, was then himself replaced in the closing stages by Eric Dier.

The game itself was settled by Jesse Lingard’s goal just before the hour when the Manchester United midfielder swept home from the edge of the box.

Rose had broken down the left and his low cross in was deflected back out to Lingard who made no mistake for his first international goal in his ninth appearance.

The breakthrough came shortly after England had been denied what looked a clear penalty when Marcus Rashford raced onto Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s through ball. Home goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet and defender Matthijs de Ligt dived in riskily and the latter appeared to make contact, but the Manchester United forward’s appeals for a penalty fell on deaf ears.

England were much the better side with the hosts creating very few clear cut chances.

The visitors carried much more of a threat with Raheem Sterling impressive in support of Marcus Rashford.

Once Southgate’s side had the lead there only ever looked like being one winner even though the Dutch, who failed to qualify for the World Cup, came back into the contest in the final third after a raft of substitutions on both sides.
