The Three Lions have revealed the squad that will be available to Gareth Southgate for England’s final two UEFA World Cup qualifying matches, and there aren’t too many surprises.

Manchester City’s Fabian Delph is likely the biggest twist on the list of 26 players, as his last call up came nearly two years ago against Spain.

Top goalscorer throughout qualifying, Harry Kane, is in fine form for Tottenham Hotspur thus far in 2017/18, making his selection run of the mill, while three of his Spurs teammates will join him.

England will close out WCQ qualifying with a home fixture against Slovenia at Wembley Stadium on October 5 before traveling to already-eliminated Lithuania three days later.
