Gareth Southgate has selected a 27-member team for England’s UEFA Nations League 2022 fixtures against Hungary, Germany and Italy. The Three Lions have two new faces in their lineup, with Leicester City defender James Justin and West Ham United forward Jarrod Bowen making the cut after an impressive outing with their clubs.
For former Hereford United and Hull City player Bowen, it’s a first international call at any level, while James Justin has previously been capped at MU20 and MU21 levels. Meanwhile, Fikayo Tomori also returns to the fold after his role in AC Milan’s Serie A title success.
Notably, Harry Kane’s England will hook together at St. George’s Park on Monday 30 May to begin their preparations for the games. They will start their campaign against Hungary at the Puskas Arena on Saturday 4 June. From there, the squad will move to Munich where they will take on Germany three days later on Tuesday 7 June at the Allianz Arena.
Southgate’s men will be back on home soil and will host Italy at Molineux on Saturday 11 June. The games are rounded-off when Hungary arrive at the same venue on Tuesday 14 June.
