Defender Gary Cahill has been recalled, and goalkeeper Joe Hart and midfielder Jack Wilshere have not been included.

England start their Group G campaign against Tunisia on 18 June, before matches against Panama and Belgium.

“I believe this is a squad we can be excited about,” Southgate said.

“It is a young group but with some really important senior players, so I feel the balance of the squad is good, both in terms of its experience, its character and also the positional balance.”
