Manchester United teammate Harry Maguire has made Gareth Southgate’s squad for the final round of World Cup qualifiers and Marcus Rashford also returns after recovering from shoulder surgery that ruled him out until October.
Speaking on Sancho’s snub and Lingard also not making the cut, Southgate said: “With Jesse and Jadon, they just aren’t playing a lot of football compared to the others in their positions … they’ve got great competition for places.
“I spoke with them & they totally understood that, they get it.”
