Manchester United captain Harry Maguire is back in the England squad for October’s internationals against Wales, Belgium and Denmark at Wembley after being dropped from the previous selection when he was convicted of assault, resisting arrest and attempted bribery by a Greek court.
Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka, Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Leicester's Harvey Barnes are called up to the senior Three Lions squad for the first time, while Jack Grealish, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Kalvin Phillips have each kept their respective places from last month.
Maguire denies the charges that were brought against him in Greece and is awaiting an appeal trial. But having seen fit to remove him within hours of being named in the last squad when the initial verdict was given, manager Gareth Southgate has opted to now recall him.
However, there is no place in the latest for squad for Mason Greenwood or Phil Foden, who each made their senior international debut against Iceland last month, before being sent home in disgrace before the follow up game against Denmark after breaching COVID-19 protocol.
