England manager Gareth Southgate has named his 27-man England squad for the inaugural UEFA Nations League finals next month, with captain Harry Kane included despite missing the last few weeks of the domestic club season with an ankle injury.

Southampton winger Nathan Redmond has also been rewarded with a call-up after strong domestic form, while Fabian Delph, Joe Gomez, Jesse Lingard and Harry Winks are all involved after missing the March internationals through injury.

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson and West Ham midfielder Declan Rice keep their places, but there is still no room for highly rated Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke City), Tom Heaton (Burnley), Jordan Pickford (Everton)

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Leicester City), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Michael Keane (Everton), Harry Maguire (Leicester City), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Having topped Group 4 of League A at the back end of last year, England qualified for the first ever Nations League finals alongside Netherlands, Switzerland and Portugal.

Southgate's team will face the resurgent Dutch in the second semi-final in Guimaraes on 6 June, 24 hours after Portugal and Switzerland meet in the first semi-final in Porto.

The two winners will then contest the final in Porto on 9 June for the chance to lift a trophy. For England, it would be the first senior international silverware since 1966.

England finished fourth at last summer's World Cup in Russia and are currently ranked fourth in the world by FIFA after the official list was most recently updated last month.
