Three Lions squad named for September
It is the second time the pair have worked alongside each other after Southgate handed the 27 year old his England MU21 debut back in 2013, with the former Chelsea and Middlesbrough forward also featuring for our Young Lions at MU19 and MU18 level in the past.
Bamford enjoyed an impressive season last term, finding the net 17 times in 38 games upon Leeds United’s return to the Premier League.
England will play three 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers across seven days next month, starting with a trip to Hungary and the Puskas Arena on Thursday 2 September.
Fans will then have the chance to watch Southgate’s men at Wembley Stadium connected by EE for the first time since the UEFA EURO 2020 Final, when they welcome Andorra on Sunday 5 September before heading to Poland’s Stadion Narodowy on Wednesday 8 September.
England currently sit top of their qualifying group with three wins from three, having scored nine goals and conceding just once in games against Poland, Albania and San Marino back in March.
