Mings, Wan-Bissaka, Maddison and Mount named in England squad

The uncapped Tyrone Mings, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Mason Mount and James Maddison have all received England call-ups as Gareth Southgate surprisingly left out right-back Kyle Walker.

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks was recalled and Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was also named in the squad for European Championship qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo, despite making just two starts since suffering a serious knee injury in April 2018.

Southgate has brought Kieran Trippier back into the fold after omitting him from the Nations League squad and there is a maiden call-up for Wan-Bissaka, leaving World Cup semi-finalist Walker conspicuous by his absence from the 25-man squad.

Fellow Manchester City defender John Stones, who has had a thigh problem, also missed out with Aston Villa defender Mings receiving his first call-up.

Chelsea playmaker Mount and Leicester’s Maddison have both previously been part of the senior squad and have been included for the upcoming qualifiers.
