Harry Winks will be given the opportunity to stake a claim for a World Cup place after convincing Gareth Southgate to include the Tottenham Hotspur player in England's squad for their friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

And his performances have finally earned him his first England call up in five years.

England have secured their passage to the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, and ahead of the summer showpiece Gareth Southgate has a few remaining friendly internationals to experiment formations and players.

The England manager wants to look at Joe Gomez, who has mainly played right back for Liverpool this season. "We want to play with wing-backs".

"He's a player every Manchester United manager has picked, and that tells me something about his mentality and the trust they have in him".

A recall for Rose might also have implications for Ashley Young, whose renascent form as a left-back for Manchester United has brought him back into contention.

Young has not played for England since a World Cup qualifying match against Ukraine on 10 September 2013, but has never given up on his dream of representing his country again.

Southgate stuck to his word regarding younger players as he made three shock inclusions in his 25-man squad.

England will first face Germany on 10 November, before hosting Brazil at the Wembley Stadium four days later.
