Aidy Boothroyd has drawn a sizeable chunk of his squad for the European Championship qualifiers against Holland and Latvia next month from Everton while Michael Keane and Jordan Pickford make the senior squad.

Wayne Rooney's decision to retire from international football may have dominated the news yesterday but Gareth Southgate has turned to two younger members of Ronald Koeman's side for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers in the form of Pickford and Keane.

Meanwhile, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jonjoe Kenny, Ademola Lookman and Kieran Dowell make the step up to the U21s following their impressive showings in the Young Lions U20s World Cup win while Mason Holgate is again selected.

Tom Davies, initially earmarked for the U19s this past summer before Everton gained permission to rest him following his involvement in the latter half of the Blues' 2016-17 season, is also called up to the U21s.

The game in the Netherlands is scheduled for 1 September before England host Latvia at Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium on the 5th.

Scotland, Andorra and Ukraine complete England's group, with the six teams in group four vying for a place in the European Championship finals in Italy in 2019.
