Man Utd, Liverpool & Tottenham Stars Join Chalobah In 28-Man England Squad

By on August 24, 2017

Gareth Southgate has selected his 28-man squad ahead of England’s World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia next month and once again it’s dominated by players from the big Premier League teams.

Manchester United has four representatives with Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford all being selected by Southgate for the double-header.

Tottenham Hotspur also have four players named in the squad with Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane all making the cut while Chelsea have just Gary Cahill representing them in the England set-up.

Arsenal duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck are named in the squad while Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge also make the cut.

Southgate hasn’t been afraid to experiment as former Chelsea midfielder Nathan Chalobah joins Jordan Pickford and Harry Maguire in earning their first call-ups to the senior squad.

Obviously Wayne Rooney isn’t part of the squad after the former Manchester United striker announced his retirement from international football yesterday.

England head in to the Malta game on September 1st sitting two points clear at the top of Group F so another win would take them within touching distance of the World Cup finals in Russia next summer.
