Raheem Sterling would have been one of the first names on Southgate’s team sheet one year ago today, but sadly, his omission is no longer a shock to most.

14.08 – Gallagher gets the nod ๐Ÿค

Gareth Southgate has ignored calls for Gibbs-White to come into the squad, instead opting for Conor Gallagher and Kalvin Phillips, of Chelsea and Manchester City respectively.

Gallagher has solidified his position in the first team under interim manager Frank Lampard but his inclusion has not had any impact on the Blues’ fortunes.

Phillips made his first Premier League start of the season last week, as Pep Guardiola opted for a weakened line-up following confirmation of City’s third successive league title.

14.05 – Pope misses out with injury ๐Ÿค•

Newcastle United goalkeeper Nick Pope misses out on the squad due to injury, just two days after securing Champions League football for next season.

Crystal Palace’s Sam Johnstone comes in to the squad to replace him.

Will we see Pickford hold his starting place or can Ramsdale make a claim for England number one?

14.02 – BREAKING: Slam Dunk for Lewis! ๐Ÿšจ

After a record-breaking season for Brighton and Hove Albion, club captain and lifelong-Seagull Lewis Dunk has been recalled to Southgate’s squad for the first time since 2018.

The 31-year-old will be hoping to make just his second appearance for The Three Lions, following a five-year hiatus.

14.01 – BREAKING: Eze choice for Ebe! ๐Ÿšจ

Crystal Palace starlet Eberechi Eze appears to have chosen to represent The Three Lions over Nigeria, following his call-up to Southgate’s squad.

Fantastic news for England fans, who will have no doubt enjoyed the 24-year-old’s recent up-turn in form.

13.45 – Gibbs-White in an England shirt? ๐Ÿฆ

The in-form 23-year-old won the U17 World Cup alongside Manchester City winger, Phil Foden, with England’s youth sides.
