Lingard & Rashford included in Southgate's first squad

Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard has been called up for England’s World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia.

 

Interim England manager Gareth Southgate has included the 23-year-old winger, part of his Under-21 squad at the 2015 European Championship, who has scored one goal in four United games this season.

 

Gareth said: "There are obviously a couple of players that I've worked with in the Under-21s with Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, who we think are exciting young players who we wanted to put in this squad.

 

“I'm looking forward now to working with the players because it's important that we build on the performance and the result against Slovakia."

 

Lingard, born in Warrington, is joined in the squad by United team-mate Marcus Rashford, back in the senior squad after scoring a hat-trick against Norway Under-21s.

 

Lingard was named in the senior squad in November but failed to win a cap against France.

 

Stoke right-back Glen Johnson was also recalled to the England set-up for the first time since the 2014 World Cup, but on Tuesday he was forced to withdraw through injury.

 

On Monday night, Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend replaced the injured Raheem Sterling.

 

Townsend, 25, has played 11 times for his country and scored three goals, but was not selected for Euro 2016.

 

And on Tuesday Burnley defender Michael Keane, 23, was drafted in to replace Johnson.

 

Keane, a former Manchester United trainee, made 16 appearances for the Under-21s under Gareth between 2013 and 2016, and now steps up to the senior squad.

 

Adam Lallana and Liverpool team-mate Nathaniel Clyne have both been left out of the latest squad after picking up injuries in the 2-1 win over Swansea on Saturday. Spurs striker Harry Kane is also absent with an ankle problem.
