England face the Netherlands next month in a bid to make the Final against either Portugal or Switzerland.

"I am honoured to have been called up by England for a competition as important as the Nations League," he said.

"I really enjoyed my first experience of being in and around an England squad and working with Gareth and his staff, so to have kept my place for these matches is really special.

"It has been far too long since England won a trophy so, although it won't be easy against teams as good as Holland, Switzerland and Portugal, we'll go out there and do our best and I think we've got a great chance of winning the tournament."

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Jack Butland (Stoke City), Ben Chilwell (Leicester City), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Tom Heaton (Burnley), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Michael Keane (Everton), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Harry Maguire (Leicester City), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Nathan Redmond (Southampton), Declan Rice (West Ham United), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Callum Wilson (AFC Bournemouth), Harry Winks (Tottenham Hotspur).
