England have recalled Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere to its national team for upcoming friendly matches against the Netherlands and Italy. The 26-year-old last appeared for his country two years ago at the 2016 European Championships.
Also, Burnleys Nick Pope has been invited after a string of fine performances for his club. He joins Joe Hart, Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland in the goalkeeping department. Swansea Citys Alfie Mawson is also included for the first time, along with Burnley defender James Tarkowski. Bournemouths Lewis Cook, who previously figured in the senior ranks for a friendly clash with Brazil in November 2017, gets another nod from Southgate and Ashley Youngs renaissance at Manchester United sees him looking to add to a 31-cap haul.
