The post world cup England squad sees 18 of players involved in the world cup return with 5 new faces involved.

Luke Shaw has earned himself a recall, after a good start to the season, seeing him score in the opening game for Manchester United against Leister City.

The Manchester full-back replaces Ashley young in the squad, and this is his first involvement, since March 2017.

Since the World Cup, Jamie Vardy and Gary Cahil have retired from international football. Adam Lallana and James Tarkowski who were on the standby list for the World Cup, have returned, and Joe Gomez who missed the World Cup through injury is also back.

Alex Mcarthy, the Saints players have joined the squad, and is the only uncapped player in the squad, after Nick Pope can't return due to a shoulder injury.

Phil Folden and Jadon Sancho, have missed out, after there was thought that they would be called up, after their progress at senior level for their clubs.

England will first face Spain at Wembley in the UEFA nations league and will then face Switzerland in a friendly.

Gareth Southgate has had to adjust his rule of having only Premier League players in his squad after he recalled Jack Butland, who now plays in the Championship after Stoke City got relegated. Gareth explained the reason for this was that he cannot force top players like Butland to change clubs, just so they can play in the Premier League.
