Gareth Southgate set to recall Greenwood and Trent Alexander-Arnold for England

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood and Liverpool defender Trent Alexander Arnold are set to be recalled to the England national team.

Gareth Southgate is set to name his first England squad since Euro 2020 on Thursday for the World Cup qualifying triple-header against Hungary, Andorra, and Poland.

Greenwood and Trent are set to earn recalls after starting the season in a sterling fashion; the duo having missed their country's Euro campaign through injury.

Doubts are still over the possibilities of calling captain Harry Kane to the squad owing to his transfer saga with the player only returning to action over the weekend after failing to return to training with Tottenham Hotspur earlier on.

In the absence of the striker, Southgate might hand call-ups to Tammy Abraham who made a fine start to life at Roma with two assists while Danny Ings who has already scored twice this season has a huge shout too.

Southgate is expected to name a similar squad to the one which finished runners-up at the Euros, although Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford will miss out through injury. Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is in line for a recall after returning to full fitness, although United's Dean Henderson is still recovering from a serious bout of Covid-19.

England visits Budapest a week on Thursday and hosts Andorra at Wembley on Sunday, 8 September before playing Poland in Warsaw three days later.
