Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier and Harry Winks are all included as the Three Lions prepare for two big international tests at Wembley.

We've had six players in an England squad before. Back in 2007, Paul Robinson, Ledley King, Michael Dawson, Jermaine Jenas, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe were called up for a friendly, ironically also against Brazil at Wembley, and a European Championship qualifier against Estonia.

We've had five players on the pitch at the same time for England on three occasions. The record was set by Clive Allen, Glenn Hoddle, Steve Hodge, Gary Mabbutt and Chris Waddle against Turkey in 1987 and matched by Paul Robinson, Michael Carrick, Ledley King, Jermaine Jenas and Jermain Defoe against Uruguay in 2006 and most recently, Dele Alli , Eric Dier, Harry Kane, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker against Turkey in May, 2016.

England host Germany on Friday 10 November before facing Brazil on Tuesday 14 November.

Elsewhere, Kyle Walker-Peters and on-loan Josh Onomah have been named in the England Under-21 squad to play Ukraine away on Friday 10 November.

Marcus Edwards will be with England Under-20s for a trip to Germany on Tuesday 14 November while Japhet Tanganga and England Under-19s head to Bulgaria to take on Iceland, Faroe Islands and the host nation.

Youngster Luis Binks, meanwhile, links up with England Under-17s for games against Portugal, Russia and Germany on home soil.
