He replaces Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne, who is sidelined through injury, while Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces Adam Lallana.¬†

Speaking to, Southgate revealed his thinking behind his first squad. 

“We’ve tried to keep some continuity from last month because my view would be that there are a lot of things that have been going right,” he said.

“We’ve had a few people unavailable through injury like Harry Kane and Jack Butland, and we’ve lost a couple over the weekend in Danny Drinkwater, Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne while Luke Shaw isn’t quite back fit yet. That’s had a bearing on the squad.
