Kane in England squad for World Cup qualifiers

Talismanic Tottenham Hotspur frontman, Harry Kane has been included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the forthcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers with Hungary, Andorra and Poland.

Kane featured as a second-half substitute during the Lilywhites single-goal Premier League victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux – his first appearance of the campaign. However, the 29-year-old takes his place in the 25-man party having quashed rumours over his future by confirming he will be staying with the North Londoners following speculation of a move to Manchester City.

West Ham United skipper, Declan Rice takes his place as the Three Lions look to build on this summer’s Euro final appearance.

The England squad in full is as follows: 

Goalkeepers: Pickford, Johnstone, Pope

Defenders: Alexander-Arnold, Coady, James, Maguire, Mings, Shaw, Stones, Trippier, Walker

Midfielders: Bellingham, Henderson, Lingard, Mount, Phillips, Rice

Forwards: Bamford, Calvert-Lewin, Grealish, Kane, Saka, Sancho, Rashford
