Inexperienced England side earn credible draw with Germany

Andre Gray who joined Watford from Burnley for £18.5m this summer is on the 33-man list

"Their system caused us some problems with (Mesut) Ozil and (Leroy) Sane dropping deeper, and our system caused them problems with our number eights". We showed real composure with the ball and were tactically better without the ball in the second half.

The 21-year-old midfielder, now on loan at Crystal Palace from Chelsea, earned his first senior call-up for the upcoming friendlies along with Tammy Abraham and Joe Gomez. I don't take risks with players.

"I'm really not surprised with what they've done because they've shown that previously in the younger ages, they've shown that this week in training".

Considering the talk of farce at the host's numerous withdrawals from the squad, this ended up being a handy workout for Southgate and his side against top-class opposition, with Brazil the next opponent in London on Tuesday, when Germany is also at home in another glamour friendly against France.

'The players are injured and can not play, ' Southgate told BBC Radio 5 live.

Here, we rank each of the 49 contenders for a spot by the chances they have of making the final 23 - as things stand. Form, injuries, recent call-ups and experience have all been considered, as we predict: who's on the plane to Russian Federation 2018? "Then we'll have a look and just assess what is required".


"I think it's a bit of a no-brainer".

Questions over Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater's commitment dominated the build-up to a match that saw two players on loan from the Premier League champions make promising debuts.

'I am not a manager who wants to reel players out until they break.

That preceded the game's quietest spell as Germany monopolised possession, with Loftus-Cheek only occasionally prompting a counter-attack, as a series of substitutions slowed play further heading into the closing stages.

"There will be a lot of these players that have experience together in the U21s over the years".
