Smalling edged out as Southgate goes for three at the back

England announced the squad on their official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon, selecting four uncapped players in Joe Gomez, Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Jordan Pickford.

England boss Gareth Southgate says that he has been impressed with the composure shown on the ball by Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks.

The Three Lions will face Germany and Brazil at Wembley Stadium with all Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Joe Gomez getting the nod in the squad.

'Young's performances warrant a recall. We want to play a certain way. A back-three is flawless for him, he's quick, athletic and can use the ball.

That's a style I want to have a look at.

The Manchester United man has been included in Gareth Southgate's 25-man team despite not playing for his country in September 2013.

There's also a return to the squad for Manchester United's Ashley Young, whose last cap came over four years ago as a substitute in a 0-0 draw with Ukraine during the qualifying campaign for the 2014 World Cup.

"This is a great opportunity to see if they can fit into the senior team and they've got the chance to stay there if they do well".

This time Southgate has made a decision to include Winks from the start, fitness permitting, as England prepare for Germany's visit to Wembley on 10 November, followed by the game against Brazil four days later.
