Southgate Includes Gomez, Loftus-Cheek and Abraham In Brazil and Germany Friendlies

Gareth Southgate has named his latest England squad to face Brazil and Germany for the friendlies at Wembley, which includes uncapped Joe Gomez, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham.

The three new faces will join the squad with an average age of just over 24 with the English Manager confirming he would not hesitate to take them to Russia next year, but that with so much competition for places, not many are assured of a place.

Gomez, the current Under-21’s captain who has mainly featured at right-back for the Reds so far this season, will get the chance to shine at centre-back in the November friendlies.

Abraham, 20, has four goals in the Premier League this season after a prolific campaign for Bristol City in the Championship in the previous season, while Loftus-Cheek who previously struggled with injury is enjoying the first sustained run of Premier League games of his career.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge and midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been left out, as has Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling.Midfielder Jack Wilshere who has struggled to tie down a spot at Arsenal has also been left out. However, Ashley Young has been recalled after an absence of four years
