In Summary

  • Manchester United defender Luke Shaw and Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana have been called up to the England squad for September’s matches with Spain and Switzerland
  • England manager Gareth Southgate named a 23-man squad on Thursday that was largely the same as the one that reached the semi-final of the World Cup in Russia in July

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw and Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana have been called up to the England squad for September’s matches with Spain and Switzerland.

England manager Gareth Southgate named a 23-man squad on Thursday that was largely the same as the one that reached the semi-final of the World Cup in Russia in July.

Left back Shaw comes in at the expense of United team mate Ashley Young and there are also returns at the back for Liverpool’s Joe Gomez and James Tarkowski of Burnley.

Lallana returns having missed out on the squad for Russia after an injury-hit season, while Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy — who has been called up twice before but never capped — replaces the injured Nick Pope as back-up keeper.

England host Spain at Wembley on Sept. 8 in the UEFA Nations League and then take on Switzerland in a friendly in Leicester three days later.
