Speaking about the uncapped trio, Southgate told reporters: "If I'm asking club managers to be courageous and pick young players, I think I've got to do the same". There is also no place for Chris Smalling but his Manchester United teammate Ashley Young is recalled, while Jesse Lingard is included despite limping out of the Champions League win over Benfica.
