​England manager Gareth Southgate has announced his latest squad ahead of the UEFA Nations League games against Croatia and Spain, with Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, on-loan Derby midfielder Mason Mount and Leicester's James Maddison earning their first call-ups to the senior squad.


The England boss, who has also signed a new four-year deal to continue managing the national team through to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, calls up Sancho for the first time after his impressive assist-laden cameo performances for Dortmund this season.

Mount earns a shock call after starring on loan at Derby from Chelsea, while Maddison has been hugely impressive since moving to the King Power Stadium for a fee in the region of £20m over the summer.


They are included in a 25-man squad that will be captained by Tottenham striker Harry Kane, with the Three Lions first travelling to Rijeka to take on Croatia, before they take on Spain three days later at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in Seville.


Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli retains his place in a new look, fresh faced squad, while Ross Barkley, Nathaniel Chalobah and Harry Winks are recalled. 


Tottenham's Dele Alli and Manchester United's Jesse Lingard miss out through injury though, with each suffering from respective hamstring and groin injuries.
