Jarrod Bowen handed first England call-up for Nations League games
Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have not earned an international recall, while Fikayo Tomori and James Justin are other notable selections

West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen and Leicester defender James Justin have received their first Inglaterra call-ups for the upcoming Uefa Liga das Nações fixtures against Hungary (duas vezes), Germany and Italy.

Bowen has been rewarded for his excellent form for West Ham, which earned him a nomination for Premier League player of the season, and has been selected ahead of Manchester United pair Marcus Rashford e Jadon Sancho, who have not received an international recall.

England manager Gareth Southgate has also named Fikayo Tomori in his 27-man squad after the AC Milan defender missed out on March’s World Cup qualifiers, but Eric Dier and James Maddison, two players previously picked by Southgate who found form over the second half of the domestic season, miss out.

There is no place for Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, who has been rested following a hectic domestic season that will see the 31-year-old feature in the Champions League final on Saturday, but right back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been included along with a host of players who return having missed out on the previous squad due to injury.

Reece James, Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier, Kalvin Phillips and Bukayo Saka are joined by Tammy Abraham in being selected by Southgate, but Ollie Watkins, Emile Smith Rowe, Tyrone Mings, Tyrick Mitchell and Kyle Walker-Peters all drop out from March’s squad.

Bowen, who scored 18 goals in all competitions for West Ham this season, was set to be selected in March before the forward suffered a foot injury. “He’s a goal threat, direct and works incredibly hard for the team,”Southgate disse. “He’s thoroughly deserved his call-up.”

Justin, Enquanto isso, has returned this season from a long-term injury and is expected to provide cover at left back in the absence of Luke Shaw and Ben Chilwell.

England open the new Nations League campaign in Budapest against Hungary on Saturday 4 Junho, in a match that will be played behind closed doors due to “the discriminatory behaviour” of Hungary supporters at Euro 2020.

England’s home match against Italy, in what is a rematch of the Euro 2020 final, will also be held behind closed doors as punishment for the crowd disorder at Wembley before last summer’s final.

Southgate’s side will also face an away match against Germany and a home fixture against Hungary in the opening four games of Group A3 in the Nations League.
