Sancho among three new faces in England squad

On the very afternoon his new four-year contract was made official by the FA, Gareth Southgate has named the 25-man squad he will have at his disposal for England's upcoming Nations League ties against Croatia and Spain.

ENGLAND SQUAD TO PLAY CROATIA AND SPAIN: J Pickford (Everton), M Bettinelli (Fulham), J Butland (Stoke), A McCarthy (Southampton); T Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), J Gomez (Liverpool), H Maguire (Leicester), D Rose (Tottenham), L Shaw (Man Utd), J Stones (Man City), J Tarkowski (Burnley), K Trippier (Tottenham), K Walker (Man City); N Chalobah (Watford), R Barkley (Chelsea), E Dier (Tottenham), J Henderson (Liverpool), J Maddison (Leicester), M Mount (Derby), J Sancho (B Dortmund), H Winks (Tottenham); H Kane (Tottenham), M Rashford (Man Utd), R Sterling (Man City), D Welbeck (Arsenal).

Elsewhere, with injuries to Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard, Fabian Delph and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley has squirrelled his way back into an England squad for the first time returns since May 2016.

Derby midfielder Mount, 19, was watched by Southgate during their Championship match against Blackburn after impressing on loan from Chelsea.

Southgate has made a strong impact since taking over from the sacked Sam Allardyce in 2016, evidenced by England's performances at Russian Federation 2018, when the Three Lions reached its first World Cup semi-final since 1990. We have a few injuries in midfield in particular so there was an opportunity there. We think there are some exciting young players that we've been tracking, either through their clubs or our junior teams ...

"Jadon's is an unusual story for a young English player".

Losing Eriksen, Alli, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen through injury ahead of such a big night was a cruel blow for Pochettino. It's hard to assess the first half because it was hard for the team to restart and to feel confident.

"He is a player that excites us a lot, he is adapting to a big football club and he has had two starts in the Champions League this year".

"Mason's is a slightly different situation".

In fact he has created more goals than any other player in Europe's five major leagues this season (5).

We'd have no hesitation on playing either of them in the games coming up.

England's upcoming games against away to Croatia (October 12) and Spain (October 15) could see the Londoner earn his first worldwide cap.

Southgate's side then travel to Seville to take on Spain, who won 2-1 at Wembley in England's first Nations League match last month.
