England squad: Gareth Southgate names his first squad of 2023
England squad: Ivan Toney included for start of Euro 2024 qualification but no Raheem Sterling.
England Head Coach Gareth Southgate has announced his first 2023 squad as they prepare for Euro 2024 qualification. Ivan Toney has been added to the squad, however, Ben White, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Raheem Sterling have been left out.
Toney, a striker for Brentford who was passed over for World Cup duty but now has 16 Premier League goals for the season, rejoins the Three Lions squad.
Although Gareth Southgate is willing to give the 27-year-old forward another chance and disregard the headlines he has been creating off the field this season, Arsenal defender White, who was sent home early from the Middle East, has no place in a first team since Qatar 2022.
After receiving limited playing time at Manchester United this season, Harry Maguire is called upon again, but Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been omitted as further concerns are raised about his defensive abilities. Raheem Sterling of Chelsea will miss the game due to an injury.
