England squad named for June's Nations League games
Gareth Southgate has picked a 27-man squad for June's games with Hungary, Germany and Italy
England men’s senior team kick-off their new UEFA Nations League 2022 campaign with four games in June.
The Three Lions take on Hungary twice, Germany and Italy across ten days in their League A group next month.
And manager Gareth Southgate has picked a 27-strong squad to cope with the schedule which sees trips to Budapest and Munich before facing two games in Wolverhampton.
There are two new faces in the group, with Leicester City defender James Justin and West Ham United forward Jarrod Bowen linking up after impressive campaigns with their clubs.
For former Hereford United and Hull City player Bowen, it’s a first international call at any level, while James has previously been capped at MU20 and MU21 level.
Southgate and his squad will meet at St. George’s Park on Monday 30 May to begin their preparations for the games, which start with a trip to face Hungary at the Puskas Arena on Saturday 4 June.
From there, the squad move onto Munich where they will take on Germany three days later on Tuesday 7 June at the Allianz Arena.
Once back on home soil, Italy are the visitors to Molineux on Saturday 11 June, before June’s games are rounded-off when Hungary arrive at the same venue on Tuesday 14 June.
