Despite qualifying to Euro 2020 with ease, Gareth Southgate is facing a lot of pressure after England suffered their first loss in the qualifiers since 2009.

There will be many disappointed with the English squad for the upcoming international break.

Jack Grealish didn’t make the cut, despite his great performances recently.

However, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Oxlade-Chamberlain did after returning from their injuries.

Perhaps the most surprising is the call-up for Jesse Lingard, with Dele Alli and Eric Dier raising some eyebrows, too.

After a fallout with the manager last time, James Maddison was still invited to join the squad.

England will face Kosovo and Montenegro after securing their spot in the Euro 2020.
