Boothroyd hails 'brave decision' from Southgate as young trio join England squad

Dele Alli has been sidelined by a hamstring problem, while fitness doubts have seen the likes of Fabian Delph, Adam Lallana, and Jesse Lingard omitted.

"We don't stand alone". 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.

England kicked-off their UEFA Nation League campaign to a bad start as Southgate's men lost at home to Spain. "We are only successful because we have an outstanding support team and exciting players, who I believe over the next four years will improve, and I hope the players continue to excite the public".

The first player born since the turn of the millennium to be called up by the England senior team, the 18-year-old is reaping the rewards of last year's bold switch from Manchester City to Borussia Dortmund in search of regular football.

"I'm really pleased we are able to have that stability and it's important that we connect all the junior teams to that", Southgate told reporters.

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.


One element of Southgate's leadership to come in for particular praise has been a continued faith in young players over more experienced campaigners who are unlikely to contribute a great deal in the long run. Two of them have returned to the group after injury: Watford's Nathaniel Chalobah and Tottenham's Harry Winks.

In addition, Ross Barkley's upturn in fortunes at Chelsea means he is in line to win his first cap since the friendly against Australia in May 2016.

"To adapt to a new country, a new language, culture and a different style of football is a brilliant experience for a young man".

"Then they have got to fight for their place in the under-21s squad then because that's not bad either". "That's the way we work". It's continuity from the squad we picked last month.

"From Joe's perspective, we don't need to see Joe in a game at this stage to know what he can do".

"I just think it's a brilliant honour and not something you should give away lightly".
