Murray misses out on England call

Murray misses out on England call

The 26-year-old has been drafted back into the Three Lions fold by Gareth Southgate after two years in the worldwide wilderness.

Arsenal midfielder Wilshere hasn't played at global level since England crashed out to Iceland at Euro 2016.

It's just three months away from the World Cup in Russian Federation, and players have just a handful of games to impress manager Gareth Southgate. The 25-year old has made three appearances for the Three Lions so far (Vs Germany, Brazil and Lithuania), helping his side keep a clean sheet in each of them.

He added: "I think the medical reports we have are that for sure he'll play well before the end of the season".

Selection-wise, I've talked before about players needing to be playing for their clubs - and playing well - but it's a bit more of a complex scenario in reality.

He said: "Well, look, it's always a huge boost for us as a team when we've got our travelling support with us".

Jack Wilshere is back with us and I think the likes of Jack and Lewis Cook are both technically very good footballers.

Elsewhere, in an experimental squad which is meant to go those on the fringes of the fold a chance to prove their worth, there are a number of maiden call-ups.




Inevitably, Southgate's squad has divided opinion amongst England fans, and Alan Shearer is one high profile name that has tweeted his take on it.

Southgate said it was "probably a very hard call" to drop Cahill, who has captained England in the past.

In terms of the new players in the squad, I'll start with Nick Pope.

Southgate said: "Nick's form has been excellent and its great credit to Burnley and [manager] Sean Dyche that two members of their defensive unit are here".

If we have a problem with any of our other goalkeepers it's important that we find out more about Nick, and form-wise he deserves to be in the squad.

There is also no place for Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold or Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon, who have been named in the England U21 squad to face Romania and Ukraine later this month.

Arsenal's Danny Welbeck, Manchester United's Marcus Rashford and Leicester City's Jamie Vardy will compete to lead the line against the Dutch on March 23 and Italy four days later.
