The three lions have 2 fixtures against Switzerland & Ivory Coast this international break and Gareth Southgate announced the squad on 17th March 2022.
As always, the England squad announcement bought in a few surprises and some influential, important players missed out due to poor form or lack of fitness. Notable absentees include – Marcus Rashford who is not getting the game time under Ralf Rangnick that he would have liked and the high-profile signing of the summer Jadon Sancho also misses due to poor club form. The inclusion of Harry Maguire was suprising over Fikayo Tomori who’s AC Milan are top of Serie A.
The Fixtures are set against Switzerland & Ivory Coast in the Wembley stadium, after which they will resume their UEFA Nations League campaign and the World Cup over the winter in Qatar.
