The Man City midfielder has been included in the Three Lions’ latest selection, with the likes of Jack Grealish and Mason Mount also getting the nod

Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden has been included in the senior England squad for upcoming fixtures against the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland, but Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood misses out again.

Two stars of the future for the Three Lions were handed maiden call-ups back in September.

They were both given debuts by Gareth Southgate in a UEFA Nations League clash away in Iceland, but were subsequently removed from the fold after breaching coronavirus protocol.

There was to be no reprieve for either during the October international break, with England favouring other options.

Foden has, however, done enough to force his way back into contention after apologising for his earlier actions.

He will be one of several exciting playmakers at Southgate’s disposal for the latest round of friendly and Nations League dates.

Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, Chelsea forward Mason Mount and Southampton star James Ward-Prowse have also been given the nod.

Ben Chilwell of Chelsea, his club colleague Tammy Abraham and Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho are selected once again after making further coronavirus breaches during the last break.

The rest of Southgate’s squad is looking fairly settled as the countdown continues to a rescheduled European Championship in 2021.

Promising youngsters Reece James, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka are all included once again.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s fine form at club level with Everton means that he gets another chance to show what he is capable of on an international stage.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who now has 32 England goals to his name, will take the armband whenever he takes to the field, with Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson, Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling and Blues defender Kyle Walker among the others to provide a wealth of experience.

The Three Lions are due to face Ireland on November 12, Belgium in the Nations League three days later and Iceland on November 18.
