Bowen, Justin get first England call-ups

England manager Gareth Southgate has called up uncapped West Ham United forward Jarrod Bowen for Nations League games with Hungary, Germany and Italy.

Bowen has scored 18 goals and provided 13 assists for the Hammers this season.

James Justin

The 25-year-old was in contention for the previous England squad in March but was ruled out by a fractured foot bone.

Leicester City right-back James Justin is named for the first time and FikayoTomori is recalled for June’s matches after helping AC Milan win Serie A.

Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips and Newcastle United defender Kieran Trippier also return after injury.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is not named among the midfielders after a heavy workload in a season that will only end on Saturday in the Champions League final, with Southgate saying “I don’t need to know any more about him”.

The England boss suggested that was also his reason for leaving out Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier, saying the 28-year-old was “definitely in our thinking”. -BBC Sports
