Eberechi Eze and Lewis Dunk have been called up to the England squad for next month’s Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia, but there is no place for Raheem Sterling or Ben White.

Dunk, who has only been capped once by his country, comes back into the international fold for the first time since 2018, while the uncapped Eze will be hoping for a first outing in international colours in June.

Chelsea winger Sterling is left out alongside fellow Blues players Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell, while Arsenal’s White is not included in the 25-player squad despite reports that Southgate reached out to the defender, who left the World Cup in Qatar early due to personal reasons.

Elsewhere in Southgate’s squad, there are returns for Marcus Rashford and Trent Alexander-Arnold, who missed out on the March qualifiers due to injury and form issues respectively. Tyrone Mings comes back into the fold having impressed for Aston Villa, while Callum Wilson is included having been in red-hot form for Newcastle.
