Young England squad sees Sancho handed first call-up

Young England squad sees Sancho handed first call-up

There is also a nod for ex-Man City prodigy Jadon Sancho, 18, who is going great guns with Borussia Dortmund this season - thus potentially making him the first player born post-Millennium to play for England.

GARETH SOUTHGATE admitted he could not turn his back on the "huge honour" of being England manager after signing a new deal yesterday.

There is no place for Dele Alli or Jesse Lingard, with both players injured. We think there are some exciting young players that we've been tracking, either through their clubs or our junior teams. "It's a good time in their development to train with us and see how they adapt".

Mount has created more chances than any other player in the League Championship and scored for England's under-21 team last month.

Discussing his extension, Southgate said: "You can have great relationships with your clubs and I did with mine - I had really special relationships with all three of my clubs - but emotionally the national team has always been the biggest thing for me". He's had two starts in the Champions League this year, he's a player that is explosive, is really creative in the final third, has had a big impact in terms of assists in the matches that he's played, can score goals. He was voted the player of the tournament at the European Under-17 Championship a year ago and also helped England win the Under-17 FIFA World Cup in India.

The 48-year-old is expected to sign the new deal on Thursday, committing his future to the Three Lions.

Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", the lawyers said. It appears he will not be given the opportunity, however.

"He's been courageous enough to go overseas and play", Southgate said. He has been fearless enough to go and play overseas and has started two Champions League games for Dortmund and has also had a big impact from the bench in their league games.

One of England's weak points in recent years, including at the World Cup, was a lack of creativity and vision in midfield.

Midfielders: Harry Winks (Tottenham Hotspur), Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Nathaniel Chalobah (Watford), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), James Maddison (Leicester City), Mason Mount (on loan at Derby County from Chelsea).

England kicked-off their UEFA Nation League campaign to a bad start as Southgate's men lost at home to Spain.

Borussia Dortmund's Sancho has risen from the under-19s - Southgate, however, said he would have been selected regardless of injuries - while Mount and Maddison had been part of Boothroyd's under-21 squad.
