Both Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood are set to be recalled to the England squad ahead of their World Cup qualifiers next month.

Both youngsters missed out on the Euro’s this summer, despite being included in Gareth Southgate’s initial squad for the tournament but both missed out through injury.

Following their summer disappointment, both players have returned to form.

Greenwood has scored in both of Manchester United’s opening Premier League fixtures, whilst Alexander-Arnold has starred in two Liverpool clean sheets to start the season.

The full squad for the qualifiers will be announced by Southgate on Thursday, ahead of fixtures against Hungary, Andorra and Poland.

Despite both players being expected to be announced in the squad, they will face tough competition for regular minutes.

Greenwood hasn’t featured for England since September 2020, when he was sent home along with Phil Foden for breaking Coronavirus protocol in Iceland.

Alexander-Arnold has featured more regularly for the Three Lions, despite being in and out of contention ahead of the Euro’s, but will face stiff competition from fellow right-backs Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier and Reece James.

A 23-man strong squad is anticipated, with Hungary and Poland expected to be England’s toughest opponent in group I.
