Southgate handed the first call-ups to Jarrod Bowen and James Justin in his 27-man England squad for upcoming Nations League fixtures.

The Three Lions boss said of Bowen: “He’s a dangerous goalkeeper, he’s direct, his journey is really interesting in terms of the experiences he’s had.

“It’s a reminder that you don’t just have to be at an elite academy and go through that path, but to play in the minor leagues and get that experience is a great path.

“He works incredibly hard for the team, which is what we want from all our forwards. He totally deserves his appointment.”
