The England manager, gareth Southgate, doesn’t have plans to call up a replacement together using the Trent Alexander-Arnold and Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier of Liverpool already in the now 24-man squad.

“We are really looking at him (Wan-Bissaka) and Trent (Alexander-Arnold) – that is why, on this occasion, Kyle Walker’s not with us – we think it’s an chance to take a look at just two young gamers,” said Southgate.
“We spoke about the amount of matches we’ve got ahead of next summer, we think we will need to view them quickly and we desired to reintegrate Kieran Trippier back into the team so that he understands he is still on our radar.
“He has had a huge move to Atletico Madrid, frankly, that goes under the radar – and has started the season very well. It’s an area of the pitch we’ve got a lot of quality.
“Kyle Walker has begun the season well so I have explained the rationale to him. They all have completely different strengths and we are excited about helping a few of these grow.”
