United pair included in latest England squad

Thursday 17 March 2022 14:00

Manchester United duo Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw have been named in the England men's squad for two international friendlies being played later this month.

The Three Lions take on Switzerland at Wembley on Saturday 26 March (17:30 GMT), before hosting Ivory Coast at the same ground on Tuesday 29 March (19:45 BST).
England have already booked their spot at this year's World Cup in Qatar, after topping Group I in UEFA qualifying, ahead of Poland, Albania, Hungary, Andorra and San Marino.
Maguire celebrates giving England the lead against San Marino.
Maguire is in fine goalscoring form at international level, after netting in each of England's last two games back in November.
The United skipper opened the scoring in a 5-0 victory over Albania, before repeating the act a few days later, as Harry Kane and co began a 10-0 thumping of San Marino.
Shaw was also called up to the squad for that international break, but eventually withdrew due to concussion concerns after suffering a head injury in the season's first Manchester derby.
Southgate's side have big ambitions after finishing fourth at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and narrowly losing last summer's European Championship final due to a penalty shootout defeat to Italy.
We wish both Harry and Luke the best of luck as they head off to represent their country once again.
