Gareth Southgate calls up Manchester United pair for his first England squad

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.
