Luke Shaw: Manchester United defender included in England 23-man squad

Luke Shaw: Manchester United defender included in England 23-man squad

This will be England's first test ahead of the 2020 European Championships and Southgate believes the majority of this squad will likely be involved in that tournament.

Southgate's side host Spain at Wembley in the UEFA Nations League on Saturday September 8 and welcome Switzerland to the King Power Stadium for a friendly three days later.

"We're obviously coming off the back of a successful summer, so I think there's a good foundation for us to build on", said Southgate, explaining why there were no radical changes despite reports that teenagers such as Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho could make the cut. "He's showing aggression and desire not to lose, and looking back to his powerful best going past people".

Southampton's Alex McCarthy joins Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland in the goalkeeping department, with the latter retaining his place despite now turning out for Stoke City in the Championship.

"It's an area where we'd like more competition".

"So have they got time to wait for a young player?"

"Joe is somebody who we know about", he said.

"It's been too easy to get into the England squad for some of the youngsters over the over the last 12, 24, and 36 months".

Adam Lallana is the most notable inclusion in the midfield having hardly featured for Liverpool so far this season.

James Tarkowski and Adam Lallana are the other changes from the 23-man World Cup squad, replacing Phil Jones and Vardy.

Shaw, 23, has not played for England since March 2017 but he is included on Gareth Southgate's 23-man list while United teammate Ashley Young is left out.

The selection of his Liverpool team-mate Joe Gomez comes as no surprise given his form alongside Virgil van Dijk in a defence that has yet to concede a Premier League goal this season.

"I was particularly pleased, I was telling him, 'You can not play better than you did".

Southgate explained that he spoke with Young as well as Leicester striker Jamie Vardy and Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill about their involvement in the national team, with all three taking a step back to give younger players a chance but still making themselves availalbe if needed.
