Southgate names England squad for UEFA Nations League fixtures

Gareth Southgate has named his England squad for the Three Lions UEFA Nations League fixtures with Hungary, Germany and Italy next month.

There are first inclusions for West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen and Leicester full-back James Justin, whilst Fikayo Tomori also returns to the fold after his role in AC Milan’s Serie A title success.

 

Bowen had expected to be included after an excellent season for the Hammers, with the 25-year-old having scored 12 goals and provided 10 assists for West Ham in the Premier League this season.

Harry Kane will captain the side and will hope to move closer to Wayne Rooney’s all-time record for the national side, having moved level with Bobby Charlton on 49 international goals last time out.

Premier League champions Manchester City are well represented with five players in the squad, with John Stones and Kyle Walker joining attacking options Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden and Jack Grealish.

However, there is no place for Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, whilst James Maddison is also not included despite a strong end to the season with Leicester.

England face Hungary on June 4, before clashes with Germany (June 7) and Italy (June 11). The Three Lions will rematch the Hungarians in the fourth fixture of the campaign on June 14 at Wembley.

England squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope, Aaron Ramsdale.

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Conor Coady, Marc Guehi, Reece James, James Justin, Harry Maguire, John Stones, Fikayo Tomori, Kieran Tripper, Kyle Walker, Ben White.

Midfielders: Jude Bellingham, Conor Gallagher, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice, James Ward-Prowse.

Forwards: Tammy Abraham, Jarrod Bowen, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, Bukayo Saka, Raheem Sterling.
