5 Liverpool players included as England name squads for March internationals

16 March 2017

Five Liverpool players have been called up to the England setup for a host of international clashes for the Three Lions towards the end of March.


Ahead of the upcoming international break, England opted to announce each of their squads throughout Thursday, ranging from the U17s to the seniors.

This saw a host of the Reds’ stars acknowledged, including some of the most impressive talents in the academy.

Gareth Southgate included both Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana in his England squad to take on Germany in a friendly on March 22, before their World Cup qualifier against Lithuania on March 26.

Both Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge were ruled out of contention through injury, with Southgate forced to name a makeshift squad, including Southampton‘s James Ward-Prowse and Nathan Redmond.

Lallana has scored in each of his last three appearances for England, and will be hoping to continue his excellent form in front of goal this time out.

The England U21s’ squad marks a significant milestone in Joe Gomez‘s recovery from a long-term ACL injury, with the 19-year-old included for the first time since October 2015.

Gomez suffered the injury while on duty with the U21s, and this month’s clashes with Germany (March 24) and Denmark (March 27) provide him with a fitting backdrop for his return.

Elsewhere, Trent Alexander-Arnold has kept his place in Keith Downing’s England U19s squad, and could line up alongside Liverpool target Ryan Sessegnon against Norway (March 22), Spain (March 24) and Belarus (March 27).

His fellow academy product Rhian Brewster is the final Reds player to be called up by England.

The teenager has been included by the England U17s to take on the Czech Republic (March 23), Slovenia (March 25) and Bosnia & Herzegovina (March 28).
