Jesse Lingard, John Stones, and Luke Shaw have all been recalled into Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland, the FA announced on Thursday.
Lingard and Stones were both part of the 2018 World Cup squad but have not been selected since 2019, while this is Shaw’s first call up since 2018.
Shaw has impressed for Manchester United this season, while Lingard has scored four goals while on loan at West Ham United from Old Trafford.
Stones has been an important part of Manchester City’s backline, which has only conceded 21 goals so far this season.
Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins and West Bromwich Albion’s Sam Johnstone have been called up to the squad for the first time, meanwhile Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has not been included.
England’s first game is against San Marino at Wembley on Thursday March 25, before they take on Albania three days later and Poland on March 31.
