England Squad Named For September Qualifiers

Last updated : 26 August 2021 By Three Lions

Gareth Southgate has picked his first post-Euros squad for three upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Hungary, Andorra and Poland.

A 25-player group has been named and, with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden out through injury, there is a first call-up for Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford.

Trent Alexander-Arnold returns to the squad and Jesse Lingard is also included.

"His progress with Leeds has been excellent," said Southgate of Bamford.

"He was very close at the end of last season.

"We worked with him at under-21 level so we know him anyway and it is a special moment for his family."

Lee Carsley will announce his first Under-21 squad on Friday with a home qualifier against Kosovo in Milton Keynes coming up in September.

Details about tickets for forthcoming England games, including England Women against Northern Ireland at Wembley, are available on The FA Ticketing page.
