England manager, Gareth Southgate, has called up Manchester United’s Aaron Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Mason Mount of Chelsea, ahead of their Euro 2020 qualifiers with Bulgaria and Kosovo.

Southgate released his 23-man squad on Thursday ahead of the two games.

Also invited for the games are Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings and Callum Wilson of Bournemouth.

Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harry Maguire, Ross Barkley, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all made the list.

However, there is no place for Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker. 

Speaking on his decision to invite Wan-Bissaka and drop Walker, Southgate said:”We tracked him [Wan-Bissaka] very closely last year and thought he had an outstanding season.

“But we wanted him to stay with the U21 group, he has adapted well and quickly to a high-profile move. We are looking at him and Trent, that is reason Kyle Walker is not with us.

“We wanted to reintegrate Kieran Trippier back into the group. He had a huge move to Atletico Madrid which has gone under the radar.

“We lack some experience in a lot of positions but we have to keep evolving as a squad and a team. We had a two-year spell of progress but we can’t stand still…for the long-term we need to start integrating them (young players).”
