Abraham Gomez Loftus Cheek get England call-ups

England meet Germany on November 10 and Brazil four days later on November 14.

Abraham is joined by fellow-Chelsea loanee and now England team-mate, 21-year-old midfielder Loftus-Cheek, who has made six league appearances for Crystal Palace this season.

England-born Tammy Abraham has been named in the England squad to face Germany and Brazil.

Loftus-Cheek of Crystal Palace and Liverpool full-back Gomez have also earned their first places in Gareth Southgate's set-up.

"If I'm asking club managers to be fearless and pick young players, I think I've got to do the same", England manager Gareth Southgate told journalists at a Wembley press conference.

Explaining the return of 32-year-old Young, Southgate said: "His performances warrant it".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has banged the drum for Wilshere to be recalled, but the 25-year-old has played only 13 minutes of Premier League football this season. "He's played very well for Manchester United".

Liverpool duo Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been left out along with Manchester United's Chris Smalling.

Having secured their place at Russian Federation 2018 last month, Southgate will begin attempts to form his 23-man squad for next summer with back-to-back friendlies as England's 2017 campaign concludes.

However, he added: "There is no question about his ability, his football brain or personality, we just need to see him playing before he comes back in because unfortunately there has been a history of injuries".

"He got a lovely assist against Arsenal (last week)".
