Arsene Wenger urges England boss Gareth Southgate to call up Jack Wilshere

Gareth Southgate launched the second phase of his England tenure at Wembley yesterday, cutting senior players from his squad and promoting youngsters as he tries to build a team who can play his football. Southgate explained that he can not pick a player who has not appeared regularly for his club, and he is right.

"We want to play in a certain way and the players I have brought in I want to see using the ball from the back and building it up in a certain way".

You can find out who those three players are here.

"I don't know how you get in an England squad if you're not in the Arsenal team", he explained.

Fit again Wilshere is back involved at Arsenal and despite talk of a recall under Gareth Southgate, one was not forthcoming for the 25-year-old - who won't be adding to his 34 caps anytime soon.

"I think the new system suits him".

Well, nearly nobody. "Personally, I think he's ready", said Arsene Wenger on Wednesday of his midfielder.

"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".

Harry Winks keeps his place alongside five Tottenham team-mates: Rose, Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Kieran Trippier and Eric Dier.

However, Southgate has clearly had a change of policy as a lack of regular game time on Merseyside has worked against Oxlade-Chamberlain, whereas the likes of Abraham, Loftus-Cheek and Gomez have benefited from their regular appearances at club level. Michael Keane, the Everton centre-half, will be missing through injury and that means Swansea's Alfie Mawson might also be in Southgate's thoughts.

England face Germany on Friday 10th November, then entertain Brazil the following Tuesday.
