While Manchester United’s Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford have been included in the squad, Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been left out.

And after announcing the squad, Southgate has explained why Lingard isn’t in the England squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers.

“Jesse’s had a difficult period with his club and I think in those areas of the pitch we’ve got players who are scoring more regularly at the moment and are in very good form,” said the England boss. (via MEN)
