Gareth Southgate named the England squad for the Quartet of League of Nations matches in June against Hungary (twice), Germany and Italy.

It’s a team of a few surprises, and Jerrod Bowen got his first challenge after an impressive season West Ham United in the Premier League and Europa League.

Leicester City quarterback James Justin could be the biggest shock, and the 24-year-old hopes to win his first match.

Manchester United couple Marcus Rashford and Jaden Sancho have stayed away, but after unforgettable seasons with the Red Devils may have a few complaints.

Calvin Phillips is back after an injured season with Leeds United, and Fikayo Tomori got a spot after an impressive campaign with AC Milan when they won the Serie A title.
