Cahill left out of England squad and Sessegnon gets Under-21 call-up

Nick Pope  39,520

Jack Wilshere has returned to the England squad as Gareth Southgate hands first call-ups to Nick Pope, James Tarkowski and Alfie Mawson.

England coach Gareth Southgate says his team should go to the World Cup despite Russian Federation being blamed for poisoning a former spy in Britain.

Swansea defender Mawson has enjoyed another impressive season, joining uncapped Cook, captain of last summer's Under-20s world champions, in the squad.

"You never want any player to experience injury and of course Tottenham have some very big matches coming up".

There is also a chance that Jack Wilshere will also return, having received a run of games at Arsenal in recent months. "We are desperate to go to a World Cup and that's where my remit ends on that matter".

"We've been to previous tournaments and lost important players and the whole focus has been on that rather than the collective".

"All of the guys with us are in the running for the 23 going to the World Cup but there are also some others who aren't available this month [due to injury]", Southgate said.




England manager Gareth Southgate insisted his side must learn to cope without star striker Harry Kane in case he should miss this summer's World Cup.

Selection-wise, I've talked before about players needing to be playing for their clubs - and playing well - but it's a bit more of a complex scenario in reality.

"Always when we're preparing for any away match, and of course we've travelled all around the world, it's really important for us that our players and their families and our supporters feel that they're safe", he added.

Cook lifted the Under-20 World Cup previous year and was rewarded by being called up into the senior squad for the first time in November for a friendly against Brazil at Wembley Stadium. We don't know how it is going to play out.

"Joe has had a hard period with his club", said Southgate.

Jamie Vardy is in good form, but the recall for Danny Welbeck showed the paucity of options, despite the Arsenal attacker boasting the most goals in the squad (15).

On Pope, Southgate said his form had been "excellent" and made it worth taking a closer look at him in case England lose a senior goalkeeper.
