England manager Gareth Southgate has called up uncapped Brentford forward Ivan Toney for the Nations League games with Italy and Germany this month.

Toney has scored five goals in six English Premier League games this season.

Keeper Dean Henderson and defenders Eric Dier and Ben Chilwell are recalled for England’s final competitive matches before the World Cup in Qatar.

Midfielder Jordan Henderson and keeper Jordan Pickford are not involved because of injury.

Defender Ben White and midfielder Conor Gallagher miss out.

Manchester United defenders Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are included despite making only four Premier League starts between them this season, but team-mates Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho are again overlooked.

England face Italy at the San Siro in Milan on 23rd September and Germany at Wembley on 26th September.
