- Southgate pieces together latest selection
- Rashford keeps his place
- Kane to captain the Three Lions
The Three Lions have two more Euro 2024 qualifiers to take in during the November break in domestic action, with tickets having already been booked to next summer’s tournament in Germany. England have dropped just two points through six games so far and will want to finish their campaign – and work for the calendar year of 2023 – with a flourish.
ENGLAND SQUAD IN FULL
Goalkeepers: Sam Johnstone (Crystal Palace), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal)
Defenders: Levi Colwill (Chelsea), Lewis Dunk (Brighton & Hove Albion), Marc Guehi (Crystal Palace), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Fikayo Tomori (AC Milan), Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)
Midfielders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid), Conor Gallagher (Chelsea), Jordan Henderson (Al-Ettifaq), Kalvin Phillips (Manchester City), Declan Rice (Arsenal)
Forwards: Jarrod Bowen (West Ham United) Phil Foden (Manchester City), Jack Grealish (Manchester City), Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), James Maddison (Tottenham Hotspur), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa), Callum Wilson (Newcastle United)
WHO HAS BEEN INCLUDED?
Marcus Rashford has retained his spot in the England squad despite struggling for form at Manchester United this season – with just one one goal recorded through 15 appearances. Red Devils defender Harry Maguire is also included again, while Jordan Henderson – who is now plying his trade in the Middle East for Al-Ettifaq – is a trusted choice for Southgate. Jude Bellingham has been nursing a shoulder problem at Real Madrid, but is called upon by England for now, while Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka returns after injury forced him out of the last Three Lions selection.
WHO MISSES OUT?
The likes of Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw and Manchester City defender John Stones are unavailable through injury, while Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon and West Ham’s James Ward-Prowse are overlooked.
