Calvert-Lewin gets England call-up, Foden & Greenwood left out
In-form Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has earned his first call-up to the senior England squad, while Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood were dropped for disciplinary reasons. England host a friendly with Wales next Thursday (Oct 8) before Nations League matches at home...
The decision to leave out Manchester City midfielder Foden and Manchester United forward Greenwood was widely expected after an incident during last month’s international break.The pair had been called up to the England senior squad for the first time, but were sent home after breaching Covid-19 protocols in Iceland by meeting up with two women inside the public areas of the team hotel.
Both players issued apologies in the aftermath of the incident, but Southgate had said they would have to regain his trust before they can be considered for selection.“They are two very talented players, but there are two parts,” he said.“We have to send a message to all players in our teams, at every level, that that sort of thing isn’t how we do things with England but then we also have to rehabilitate these two boys, young people will make mistakes.
“These lads have suffered enough, we think they need this period of reflection, but then that gives them the opportunity to get back on their feet with their clubs and enjoy their football.”Southgate also added that any future decision on whether to call them up would purely be based on form.
