Dele, Eric and Harry all featured in the international matches at the start of September, but Kieran was forced to withdraw from the squad on that occasion due to a slight injury, meaning the right-back is still waiting to build on his maiden cap in a friendly against France over the summer.

England host Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday 5 October (kick-off 7.45pm) before visiting Lithuania on Sunday 8 October (kick-off 5pm).

Victory in either match for the Three Lions would rubber-stamp their progress to the tournament finals in Russia next summer.

Elsewhere, Harry Winks, Kyle Walker-Peters and Josh Onomah, the latter currently on loan at Aston Villa, have been included in the England Under-21s squad for European Under-21 Championship qualifiers at home to Scotland (Friday 6 October) and away to Andorra (Tuesday 10 October).

Midfielder Marcus Edwards is with England Under-20s for matches away to Italy (Thursday 5 October) and at home to Czech Republic (Tuesday 10 October), while central defender Japhet Tanganga will travel with England Under-19s for away games against Czech Republic (Friday 6 October) and Slovakia (Monday 9 October).

Meanwhile, midfielder Tashan Oakley-Boothe, who made his senior debut against Barnsley in the third round of the Carabao Cup last week, has joined defender TJ Eyoma in the England Under-17s squad for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in India. The Young Lions are already in the host country preparing for the tournament and will play a friendly against New Zealand on Sunday.
