England manager Gareth Southgate has named his latest 25-player squad for upcoming international friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast this month.

Jadon Sancho has been left out of the Three Lions setup despite his recent return to form for Manchester United, while there is also no place for club-mate Marcus Rashford.

Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi has been called up for the first time at senior level in recognition of his club form as Southgate assesses his options and begins to cast an eye on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar eight months away.

Southgate has, however, omitted Fikayo Tomori, who has impressed for AC Milan this season.

The likes of Conor Gallagher, Emile Smith Rowe and Tammy Abraham keep their respective places in the squad from the previous international break in November.
