October's England call-ups confirmed
28 September 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Harry Kane and Kieran Trippier have once again been named in the England squad for October's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania.
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.
